Jack gave up naps shortly after turning 2, and has rarely taken a nap since. Even during long (8 hour) car rides, he doesn't sleep. We stayed out pretty late last night, but Jack still woke up just before 7:00 this morning. I knew he would be tired, but I was shocked when he told me this afternoon, "Let's snuggle, Mommy." I wasn't about to refuse. So we laid down on the couch together to snuggle, and amazingly we both fell asleep! Jim took this picture of us. This is the first nap I have ever taken with Jack.

Here are some pictures from the past few weeks. We've been to the Science Center, the Magic House (twice) and the Zoo (twice). We've had some really nice days (mid-70s a couple days) and were excited to get outside at the zoo and some parks. It's getting colder now, but we needed that short reprieve.
Patrick enjoyed the Legos at the Science Center.

Last weekend, we went up to Milwaukee to visit Aunt Karen (Jim's sister), Uncle Lenny, and Colin. Jack was so excited to hang out with Colin. The first thing he asked when he woke up Saturday morning was, "Where's Colin?" Colin shared his toys with Jack and Jack even enjoyed just watching Colin play video games.

First, some pictures from before our vacation. The boys were looking cute in their Cardinals sweatshirts the other day, so I took some pictures of them. They get along pretty well most of the time. Jack especially enjoys making Patrick laugh.
Aurelia is just a few months younger than Patrick.
Patrick was intrigued.
We arrived in Wisconsin on Saturday afternoon and went straight to one of the three indoor waterparks at our hotel. The boys had a blast! I didn't take any pictures the first day, but here are some of the 4 older boys getting ready to go swimming on Sunday.
We planned to come home on Monday, but due to the "Storm of the Century" that was supposed to hit Monday morning, we left after dinner on Sunday and drove through the night. We got home by 1:30 in the morning and avoided the bad weather. Right now it has been sleeting for hours and we are under a Blizzard warning. Fun. Jim will probably just spend the night at work tonight instead of driving home and then driving back in the morning. We have plenty of food and hot chocolate, so we're good. :)
