At the beach, he didn't get out of the bed; he just went right to sleep for naps and at night. Now, I can see that this probably had quite a bit to do with his level of exhaustion. His first night at home was a very different experience. He kept getting out of the bed and running all around the upstairs. We decided to jimmy his door shut
So, one evening earlier this week, I read him some books, jimmied the door closed and left him upstairs to go to sleep. A brief while later, Nick says, "he's out of his bed." I asked if he was out of his room and the answer was no, so I let it go. After maybe 30 minutes, all was quiet, so I went up to check on the little guy and make sure that he was sleeping in his bed rather than on the floor.
This is what I found:
In case you are missing it, here's a close up:
Just for the record: I don't put my child to sleep with shoes on. He got out of the bed to put his crocs on the wrong feet to go to sleep.
He always makes me smile and laugh when I least expect it. I love it!

Saturday it rained for the majority of the day. After Carter woke up from his nap, we went to see if the pool was open, but it wasn't. We ran a few errands and then returned home. Our driveway gets nice-sized puddles
He was a mess! I stripped him down at our back door and took him straight to the bathtub. He had a blast, though, which I guess is the really important thing!
Ah, the things we tell ourselves we won't let our children do...

He talked about going to see the dinosaurs all week, and then when the lights went out and the narrator/paleontologist was talking, he kept saying "go home," so I was getting a little worried. However, once the dinosaurs actually made an appearance, he was fine. He loved watching the dinosaurs!

We have been enjoying fresh-off-of-the-bush blueberries since we got home! Thanks, Debbie, for such a fun and yummy adventure!

Enjoying a little grilled cheese lunch, poolside
I am so proud of our little man! He was a great traveler! We don't have a DVD player (portable or in our car) and he does fabulously on long car trips. He points out "big trucks," buses, and many other things...Nick and I laughed because on our trip from Indy to Decatur, he literally talked the entire 6.5 hours! He got sleepy when we were about 10 minutes from Nick's mom's house, and started saying "Carter sleepy time" over and over and over. Carter was in a great mood all week and enjoyed seeing and celebrating with family and friends.
My sister has some pictures on her blog from our trip too. I'll post more soon!
