Driving Home From Canada

Luke did so well in the car, really. It was long, it was exhausting, and it was hot, but it could have been so much worse. On our way up to Canada he did super well, and he did pretty well on the way home. It felt longer cause we were all exhausted from the festivities of the week. But here a few shots and videos of the happy times... Okay, these were taken right after a freak out session and I was trying to find something to make him laugh with. Sometimes it is crazy what kids think is funny.

Also, the car seat freak in me has to state that the car seat strap covers on his straps have since been removed cause I learned that they aren't considered safe unless they came with the seat and have been tested with the seat. It's funny the things you become passionate about in random ways. But we are now quite passionate about car seat safety! We're planning to keep Luke rear facing up to the limit of his seat and I have learned how to install it properly. Okay, end rant, and back to the blog!

I have no idea what is up with this picture... I'm pretty sure he's yelling "NACK!" while still chewing the previous animal cracker. No one who's met this kid would believe that, though...

Aunt Sue gave us a frisbee type thing that she got at the zoo and it turned out to be a lifesaver on the way home. Twisting it up and then letting it go equals big fun (and probably unsafe conditions for the driver... who was just talking about car seat safety???) for little boys.

And this is where Lukey learned to do it for himself. Sort of. :)

Love the on-the-edge-between-tears-and-giggles moments. Just makes me want to hug him and kiss him. Soon!
