The big 4.0 for Loggie Goggie

At the end of July Logan turned 4.  Times flies!

Carolyn got her two cakes because we planned two parties for her, one at school and one at home.  We also couldn’t decide on a theme because ever since we were in the US in March and all went and saw the live action Beauty and the Beast movie, Logan was crazy about all thing Belle, but between that time and her fourth birthday she also became infatuated with Trolls.  We split it evenly – school cake was Belle and home cake was Trolls.  Moonlight, a local bakery, made both cakes and they did a fantastic job.

The school birthday party was on July 28th, then we had a slumber party with the two girls who always hang out with Zoe and Logan, Jolisha and Jowita.  In the middle of the slumber party we had cake and Logan opened all her presents, including some Beauty and the Beast Barbie dolls (thanks, mom!).  The next morning the kids all went to TESCO to play in their huge play area for a while, then we dropped Jolisha and Jowita off at home.  To finish off the celebration weekend we went to NHK for dim sum brunch on that Sunday and Logan brought her dolls with her.

Logan has grown up so quickly that it is amazing.  Carol and I contribute quite a bit of that growth to her school, where some amazing teachers have given Logan so much loving instruction that her confidence has soared and her language skills have improved dramatically.  Carolyn and I are both so proud of the little lady she has become!
