This year we ended up sleeping all four of us in one king size bed. This arrangement was caused by Sam being too big for a pack n play and Alex refusing to share a queen size bed with any one of his cousins. Why? Because he really like snuggles from Sam and me. Whatever.
On Sunday night, as I was crookedly spooning Sam with my head where my feet should be, I woke from my light slumber (see above mention of 4 whole humans sleeping in 1 bed) hearing a weird noise. It took a hot second for me to realize it was Sam peeing. Yep. He was laying there, flat on his back, completely asleep, with his overnight diaper pulled down just far enough to get his business out, and was peeing straight into the air, not stirring one bit from his own pee fountain splashing down on and around him.
I jumped up and grabbed a towel to put under him in an effort to stop the pee from seeping through the mattress cover and into the 2" memory foam mattress topper because whhooo boy, I did NOT want to replace that sucker. And still none of this woke him. Then? Then I took his precious Blank away. You know, because it had PEE ALL OVER IT. That did it. That woke him up. And sent him into a fit a wolverine would be impressed by. So...in my irritation and exhaustion...I gave it back to him. I handed my pee covered child a pee covered blanket I knew he was going to snuggle with and chew on, and I left the room and slept on the couch.
Other than that and the fact that it has rained so much, the entire lake was in emergency No Wake for all but 1 day we were there, we had a great time as usual. On the way there, Alex made a list of the things he wanted to do as soon as we arrived:

He held true to his list. After stretching, he took Sam and Travis right down to the pier while I unloaded the car, and they fished there until the boys showed up.
And? Have I mentioned how much I love this view?
