Weather was great and I'm feeling ready to embrace summer :)
We had fun Saturday night, having dinner and hanging out with another family. I always feel refreshed after spending time with people who are in the same stage of life as we are. Good times, and I feel blessed to be meeting more and more moms in our community.
This afternoon Mark, Luke, and I went on a little adventure to a park we've never tried before in our area. It was nice -- Luke's favorite part was the sand volleyball court. He is obsessed with digging in the dirt. I thought he'd be too young for a sandbox this year, but he is definitely ready. I've never seen anything like it. He is our outdoor boy for sure!
Before we went to the park, we stopped to have lunch. Much to our surprise, Luke decided he was ready for regular silverware. He used a regular sized fork, as if he'd been using one forever. Obviously, he's ready to move from eating with his hands only. The funniest part was that he was trying (sort of successfully) to hold it correctly, not the traditional fist hold. Who would have thought little Lukie would want to have table manners and use silverware?
After eating and playing at the park, we stopped at Wal-Mart to get Lukie feeding supplies. Some bowls with suction cups on the bottom, big boy silverware, some older boy sippy cups, and a portable high chair. I am so done with his normal high chair. It's in the way, and it drives me nuts. We switched to the kind that attaches to a normal chair. It will also be nice for Luke to feel like part of the regular table now. We wanted to buy a sandbox, but they were sold out. So we'll order one and get it set up sometime this week. He'll love it!
Here are some pictures from the park :)
Not enjoying the equipment -- something about those stairs freaked him out!
Sort of enjoying the swings. We got a half smile, half whine.

|Full on digging!|
|Loves to watch it fall to the ground.|
After getting messy and hot, time for a ride in his stroller. Piggy toes out for some fresh air :)

Cheers to friend and family filled weekends!
