Patrick and Ingrid's basement is awesome! It is perfect for their three boys. Jack especially loved shooting baskets.
Patrick with Ryan, Adam, and Lukas:We played outside one day. It was in the 40s! That is practically summer in Wisconsin. Jack and Adam shot baskets outside, too! There is a video of Jack shooting baskets at the end of this entry.
He shoots, he scores! Adam raced down the sidewalk.
Jack loved playing in the huge mounds of snow!
Ryan threw snowballs at me. He used a "snowball maker" to form the balls. That is not something they sell a lot of in Missouri.
Jack helps Uncle Patrick by shoveling the driveway.
After Wisconsin, we went to Illinois to visit my friend Kristin and her family. We went from staying with a family with three little boys, to staying with a family with three little girls. Jack had lots of fun at both houses.
Evelyn and Emily slide in the living room.
Jack relaxes with his feet on the table. I bet his mother doesn't let him do that at home!
Our final stop was to visit my friend, Jenni, and her family. Jack is almost exactly 1 year older than their son, Julian. The boys had lots of fun together. Julian showed Jack how to rest on a dog.
Jack tried to carry all of Julian's green toys at once.
We went to a museum in town. Jack really liked the wall made of pins that you can press shapes into. I know that was a horrible description, but this picture will help.
After the museum, we stopped to see a horse that lives in the neighborhood!
Jack helped Jenni bake Valentine's Day cookies. Yummy!
