Luke goes on patrol: Space and Aviation Day 2010

Luke goes on patrol
Originally uploaded by Bryon and Shannon
Luke and Daddy gave Mommy the day off and spent the morning at Space and Aviation Day at the base... Look "went on patrol" with me on the flight line and climbed all over all the aircraft... B-52, F-15, Black Hawk, Chinook, etc...

Despite the cool factor of the aircraft, he got a bigger thrill out of the fire trucks!

Great event, check it out next year!  More photos here...

Happy 2nd Birthday Luke!

Luke turned 2 years old a couple of weeks ago. We had a great time!

It was a great birthday! A new play-scape, kiddie pools, sprinklers, a bouncy house, a ball pit, the ice cream man, good friends, food, cake, and RAIN!

Check out all the photos here... He's getting big fast!!!

Luke puts "Mr Potato Head" to sleep

Shannon made Luke a Mr Potato Head out of a real potato to go along with his plastic versions. She got Luke to put him to sleep like a little baby, with a blanket and all. Good practice for his little brother/sister...

Luke made some friends at the local aquarium... Despite what this photo may imply, Luke was obsessed with this shark, and begged us to lift him up so he could touch it and check it out... Over and over again...

The Gulfarium was pretty cool... They had a number of live shows featuring sea lions, dolphins, and other creatures... There was even a guy hand feeding sharks...

Go fly a kite kid!

Luke got his very first kite today. We gave him a crash course on the finer points of kite flying out our "back yard" on Ft Walton Beach...

Luke's first Florida Sat Morning

We're down at Ft Walton Beach Florida... Bryon has military training, so the whole family came down too. We have an awesome condo right on the beach! Here's how we spent our first Sat morning together. Luke played on the beach, which also happens to be our condo's back yard... Good times!

Side bar, we've been negligent with posting our photos lately. We'll post a bunch soon and catch you up on all of our adventures!!!
