I know I've mentioned it before, but my boys' ideal vacation is staying at a hotel and swimming in the hotel pool. We had thought about blowing their minds and taking them to one of the many indoor waterpark resorts in the state, but decided that they probably aren't quite big enough for that yet, especially when we also have a 5 month old baby. So, we found a hotel in Madison that has a small indoor waterpark (read: one slowish waterslide, and a few kiddie slides, and spraying water). The twins were in heaven! There was only 8 hours between check-in and check-out that we were awake, and we went swimming 3 times! (I know, we are the best parents!)

This week, the boys are on Spring Break. Bart also took a few days off of work so we could all go to Madison to see his brother Bret, his wife Charise and their kids. When we got to Madison on Monday, we met Charise and the kids at the children's museum, only to find out that it's closed on Mondays. So, we turned around, saw the Capital building, and decided to go inside and look around. Let's just say it was a happy accident, because it was so cool inside, even my six-year olds thought it was pretty neat!

We haven't been doing too much exciting lately. Just waiting for spring to come and school and work and housework and taking care of a baby who has decided he doesn't like to sleep!
A few weeks ago, we had the biggest snow storm of the season, with around 5 inches of snow. This was also the most snow that was on the ground at any one time the whole winter. Now it's 70 degrees! It has certainly been a crazy winter. It will be interesting to see what Spring and Summer are like.
One day while they were in town, we all went to the children's museum. Kade enjoyed dressing like a football player-doesn't he look tough?
I loved to see the big boys dressed in their firefighter gear, because I have some cute pictures of the same 3 boys dressed the same almost exactly a year ago when we went to the children's museum together last.
We were sad to say goodbye to Lynndon and Cooper this time because they are moving far away in May, and we don't know how many more times we are going to see them (and their parents!)

He loves to chew on his fingers, as well as anything else he can get his hands on, talk to the baby in the mirror, and roll onto his side! He has the sweetest smile, the cutest giggles, and the sloppiest kisses! Oh, and the chubbiest legs--at his 4 month check-up he weighed 17 lbs 5 ounces (which is 87th percentile). All the more baby to love on!
