Hey everyone, it's been a very busy couple of weeks for dada, but we're getting some good pictures here in Madison so I wanted to be sure to wrap up our trip to the Lodge a few weeks ago so we can post those next week.
Will spent a lot of time playing on the porch area - you can see he has his shark tent set up here, and he also spent a lot of time playing with a wooden choo-choo that my dad and grandpa made for me when I was his age. Also, on this day someone gave him a roll of choo-choo wrapping paper and he made short work of it.
My dad was painting one of the doors a bright Cornhusker red, and he has this thing about painting noses. When we were young, and even not-so-young, he would always do this, kind of a running family gag. So Will got to have a red nose for a day.
When we aren't playing in the lake or fishing, there was lots of relaxing to do. Here Will's enjoying a book with Unky Grant.
Taking a snooze with Grandma.
Here he's rocking Guitar Hero with mom. I got this game and two guitars for my birthday, it's been a big hit.
Since Will showed he was kind of afraid of the water (or at least the mucky sand) this year, the girls got him a couple of things to encourage more fun in the water. The boat thing was pretty fun but I think Uncle Adam got more fun out of it than Will did. He did like the seahorse-innertube thing though, as long as his piggies didn't have to touch the ground.
We had so much fun that we stayed up late often and skipped a lot of baths, but when we did give Will a bath, it was a sink splashin' good time!
