Father's Day 2010

What a fantastic & relaxing day we had. Jackson has been sleeping through the night so to wake up feeling refreshed really is a good start to our day. The three of us hung out in bed and played in the morning until he started getting tired. We then packed up for the day and drove to Sun Prairie (1 hr away) to my in-laws home for a day of swimming and a family BBQ. My in-laws were there along with my dad, his girlfriend, my brother and his girlfriend. The day was filled with a lot of laughter, eating, swimming with great people.

Jack really is a fish out of water. He went in the pool twice for over an hour EACH. I couldnt believe how much he just loved his floatie and kicking/swimming around with his family. It was a nice treat to be able to relax in the pool and not have him squirm. On top of that, he even took over an hour nap in his Grandparents crib! He is doing such a great job with naps now and I am now confident that he is on a great schedule...finally.

Another thing we did on Father's Day was visit Brian's Grandparents gravesite. Jack has never been to meet his GG's so we thought it was a great way to introduce him since we were in the area. Jack's GG (Great Grandpa) is named Wayne and that name has been passed down to four generations (Jackson Wayne Legler). We thought it would be great for Jack to see where his middle name came from.

One week prior to our Father's Day, Brian, Jack & I took his Nana to the Milwaukee County Zoo. We are trying to take Jack as much as possible as he seems to be learning so much lately about animals, sounds, names, etc. Here's a picture of us on the Zoo train as a family!
