Happy Birthday, Jamison!

“Happy Birthday” has been Jamison’s preferred greeting for months. Maybe he thought we would forget his birthday was soon approaching. No chance of that!

We celebrated Jamison’s birthday in traditional Logan style: multiple days of friends, family, and fun. Earlier this week, Jamison and a few friends visited the corn maze on Sauvie Island. Yesterday we traveled by train, picked out a couple of pumpkins among acres of choices, and floated by boat at Lakeview Farms.

In the evening, we lighted candles, slaughtered “Happy Birthday,” and gorged on birthday cake. Jamison opened presents. Let me just say that the Nerf Vulcan and the Wii Outdoor Challenge are both stupid fun — and I mean that in the best of ways.

We stayed up ’till midnight to ring in Jamison’s birthday and then retired, knowing Jamison had set his alarm for shortly before his birth hour of o’dark thirty. The alarm didn’t awake and neither did Jamison until 3 AM. After a couple of befuddled “happy birthdays” we returned to our slumber.

Today, Jamison is eleven. Happy birthday, son. I’m proud of you!

    Sounds like a great party. The Nerf Vulcan needs careful evaluation by your safety-concerned friends. I’ll be over to give it a complete safety check .

    I’m sure Jamison would love a safety evaluation, to be followed of course, by all out Nerf war. ;-)

    We have enough Nerf artillery to arm the neighborhood. My favorite is the N-Strike Maverick.

    Wow, that Vulcan looks pretty awesome. I’ll have to check one of those out sometime. We used to have nerf gun wars in the office at a company I worked at. It was part of the interview question list: “How do you feel about foam darts and bullets hitting you in the back of the head or the face?”

    Great birthday present for an 11-year-old. :)

    Sounds like a great job! I worked at a high-tech company where every Friday was “office supplies weapons day.” We made all sorts of cool stuff.

    Hey, I think you broke Nerf’s web site with your link –
    I got a ‘Bandwidth limit exceeded for this site’ message ;-)
    Sounds like a great birthday party(s)!

    Ha! I couldn’t send enough traffic to break anyone’s bandwidth limit. ;-)

    We had fun. Now we’re looking forward to Thanksgiving (our big family reunion in Northern California) and Christmas (more family here in Oregon and a wedding in Washington).

    I wonder if we’ll have enough room to bring some Nerf arms to the reunion…
