Vacation

Our family recently went on vacation with my extended family.  We had a marvelous time with everyone and got to see and do a lot too!  I asked the boys what their favorite parts were, and they said the following:

Will: “Swimming”

Drew: “Climbing the tower.”

Luke: I can’t remember what he said so I will have to ask tomorrow as he is sleeping right now.

Some interesting things the boys said while we were on vacation are the following quotes:

Will: “Why do we have to go?  Did people run out of clothes?”

Luke:  (as I was tucking him into bed one night) “Where’s daddy?”  Me: “He’s here.”  Luke: “No, he’s not.  He’s on vacation.”  Luke then held up a toy and asked, “What’s this?”  I said, “A motorcycle.”  Luke responded, “No, it’s a car.”  He held it up again and asked, “Is this a car?”  I replied, “No, it’s a motorcycle.”  Luke responded again with, “No, it’s a car.”

Luke and Daddy

Luke is definitely a “daddy’s boy” when it comes to bedtime routines.  The norm is that I put the older boys to bed, and Jonathan puts Luke to bed.  As a result, they have really bonded.  Last night as I was preparing Luke for bed he said, “I need daddy.  I want to talk to him.”  Tonight as I was once again preparing him for bed he said, ” I want to give daddy a kiss on his lap.”  I asked him, “You want to give him a kiss on his lap?”  Luke replied, “Uhm … on his nose.”
