After Jack's nap (we are down to one a day and today's was only 1 hour long), we went outside to swim.
Here are a couple funny videos from this weekend. In the first one (the longer one) Jack is "talking" and it is hilarious. The sounds he makes are pretty funny. Then he tries to plug in the CD player. Notice how he walks after taking a drink. I swear it is just milk. In the second video you will see where Jack decides to put the grapes.

Then we all got our picture with Fredbird, but Jack still wanted to get as far away as possible.
Finally, I thought we would check out the bounce house. Jack and I waited until the kids inside were done, and then the attendant let just the two of us go in. I was afraid if other (older) kids were in there with Jack, they would knock him down. Jack did not like the bounce house either! I guess I understand. Since he doesn't know how to jump yet, what fun is a place where you keep falling as you try to walk? So much for what mom thought would be a fun outing!

Grandpa is making Jack smile!
This man approached us and told Grandma and Grandpa some funny stories.

After Chicago, Jack and I went to Michigan with my parents. We met many of my relatives up there. At one point, there were 29 people sharing two cottages on Lake Michigan (11 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms)! One of the first things we did was go to the playground. Jack and Caeleigh hung out in their pajamas in Caeleigh's chairs on the deck one morning. They enjoyed the incredible view.
Jack loved the beach. He learned he could fall over in the sand and it didn't hurt. He would roll around in it and get sand everywhere. He also loved Lake Michigan. The fact that it was about 54 degrees did not seem to bother him. I think he would have stayed in the water longer, and wandered deeper if I had let him. We played in the sand or on the beach almost every day.
It was fun for Jack and Caeleigh to play together. Because they weren't on the same nap schedule, they really didn't play together as much as Colleen and I thought they would.
Since it was vacation, Jack enjoyed a drink or two.
This was Rachel's outfit one day - t-shirt, shorts, and wool hat. Hmmm.... I think this picture was taken right after one of her dips in the lake. She and many of the other teenagers were part of the "Dip a Day" club. Brrrr...
Patrick and I took Ryan, Adam, and Jack on a trolley.
The sand dune behind the cottage provided lots of fun too!
Jack likes to taste everything.
We walked out on the pier one afternoon. My mom and aunt Lucy swung Jack as they walked. Now, whenever two people are holding his hands he expects you to swing him. His body goes limp because he is waiting for you to pick him up and swing him. It is hilarious. I am amazed at how he remembers such things.
This day at the beach was quite windy. The lawnchair is there to block the wind as the boys dig a hole in the sand.
