Splish! Splash!

Thursday afternoon we went to the Lake George waterpark as a late birthday present for Jacob.  This year Nate, Amanda, Carter, and Gavin came with us.  The boys had a blast on all the water slides, even the BIG ones!  Unfortunately it's really wet in that part of the park so I couldn't get any pictures from there.  Maybe next year we'll get a waterproof camera.


Waiting patiently at 10am for the doors to open!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

 We had a super fun St. Patrick's Day, enjoying the warm sunshine!  It sure doesn't feel like March (or even April) in Vermont... and it's going to be difficult if the weather turns back to what it normally is this time of year.  Jacob just wants to be outside all the time!  Luckily he can play outside with Pili while I go in and out, keeping an eye out the window.  He was thrilled to have his sandbox out with his new birthday trucks in it.  Looks like he needs a new sandbox though since he hardly fits in it with the 2 trucks!

I took these pictures through the window with my iPhone, so the quality isn't the best.

He was so tired last night that by 6:30 he was telling me he was tired and wanted to go to bed!  He was asleep before we could get half way through Go, Dog. Go! and still isn't awake 12.5 hours later!  :-)  Guess gymnastics, a trip to the playground, and the afternoon outside yesterday did the trick!

On and on....

Well the presents continued for several days!  Although he doesn't look too happy about it in the picture above, he really was (but he was tired also)!

Well maybe it's the time change, or all the festivities associated with Jacob turning three, or maybe the fact that Jacob got up at 3:45AM yesterday morning, but I had all I could do to drag myself out of bed in the pitch dark at 5:55 (late!) this morning.  Thank goodness he slept well last night.  Yesterday morning I head him get up and come upstairs to get in bed with us.  I guess Ted didn't hear him coming (I hear every move he makes) because apparently Jacob walked up to the bed and grabbed Ted's foot, really scaring him. LOL!  So he got in bed and tried to go back to sleep but he had so many questions he just couldn't stop talking...

J: Mama, are you made of wood?
Me: No Jacob, I'm not made of wood.
J: Okay, Mama, so you're not a piece of wood.

Then the singing... "A B C D...H I J... W X Y and Z.  Now I know ABC's, next time sing with MEEEE!"  Or some version close to that with parts missing here and there.  At least he's moved on from Frosty!

Driving home yesterday he said he wanted to play outside.  I said it was late and he'd been outside for a long time already... Jacob: "We'll see when we get home, Mama.  That's a good idea!"

The Really Big Party!

Like a good boy, Jacob did the dishes before going to his party!

 He warmed up his jumping legs in the castle while waiting for his family and friends to arrive.

It was a super fun time!  Thanks to everyone for coming to the party!!
