Luke: Since the 16th, Luke has gotten another tooth...his top right. He also began crawling and pulling up. He's not so fast with the crawling, but he's getting better and better every day. He also enjoys pulling up on Kyle and me and on our end tables. It's pretty cute, and I have yet to take a picture of it, but you can be sure I'll post it when I do. It's not quite tall enough for him to hold on and stand straight up so he's bent over a little. He's very proud of himself until he wants down, but he doesn't know how to do that part yet, so he fusses until he gets rescued. He's been eating a LOT more food lately. That began when my parents were here for Memorial Day. Luke had big fun with his grandparents and did his best to spoil them while they were here. I enjoyed the visit as well. Nebraska is a LONG way from here.
Kyle: Kyle has been a busy boy. He works really hard on our yard and it looks great. It should for all his efforts! Luke and I helped a little bit today. We trimmed off the dead flowers. I trimmed, Luke tried to eat them. He also stays really busy on his two websites http://www.virtualfsbo.com/ and http://www.rentalads.com/ . He recently made RentalAds a world wide website. That took a lot of time coding and testing etc. etc. Kyle went to Dana's for Memorial Day/Dana's birthday. Bridget and Kaleb were there as well as Jeremy, Angie and Hayleigh. Kyle said Kaleb was tall, and Hayleigh was "huge! I can't believe she's not even two yet! and very cute. I'm sure he liked seeing Bridget, Jeremy and Dana, too, but he didn't say much about them. hahah
Me: I really don't get much exciting news about myself. My news is always Luke news, but this week I did get approved to be a Body and Soul aerobics instructor. I will need to go to a training in Sacramento in early August to complete the LONG process. Kyle and Luke are coming along and we're leaving early to spend a few days as a family in San Francisco. I'll start in the fall, so we'll see how I like it. I'm not making a much bigger committment to it than I've already made to working out, so I think I should be able to fit it into our schedules without too much upheaval. We'll see if I like it or am any good at. Pre-calling might turn out to be too much for me.

Mom and dad with Luke. Yes, that is my dad. Some of you may not have recognized him with out a newspaper in front of his face to hide from the camera. Grandchildren are bringing out a whole new side to him =P

See! There they are! They are very cute and painful.
Saturday Kyle went and bought Luke the smallest life jacket he could find for our paddle boat. It's not to much of a safety issue yet, as Luke is content to sit on my lap and look since we're outside, but it won't be much longer and he'll be a handful. We took him on the paddle boat with his life jacket on and it was so big he couldn't sit. Hopefully he gets tall before he gets naughty!
Sunday we went to the Hays family reunion in Kremlin, OK. We saw my Pappaw and Grandma Key, Aunt Marjorie and my Great Uncle Pete and his wife Janelle. Luke, of course, was a hit. Afterward we went and saw Kyle's dad, Dana in Pond Creek. Dana had only seen him once, so was very excited to spend a few hours with him. Luke LOVED his Shelties. He kept laughing and laughing at them. Super cute. He hated his carseat, again. He cried the entire way there (minus 30 min. of naptime) and the entire way home. I told him to get happy, since he wasn't getting out of his seat until we got home, but he didn't listen. Let this be a lesson for him.

We got up and left the next morning after he ate. He took 2 poor naps in the car, and basically cried the rest of the time. He does NOT enjoy his carseat. His drive time limit is about 20 minutes. You can't really get anywhere in 20 minutes.
We got to mom and dad's at 2:30. Mom and I left Luke with Kyle to take a nap and we went to the grocery store. It had snowed earlier that morning but it was all gone by the time we arrived. Michael, Audra and Solomon arrived around 6-6:30. Solomon hadn't done any better than Luke in the car. We ate supper and the babies went to bed at 8 and then we played cards. Luke slept all night long! I thought a new location/traveling might throw him off, but he was terrific! My grandparents came Saturday for supper. It was their first time to meet Luke. I think he passed inspection. We went to church Sunday and visitied my grandparents again Tuesday. Kyle and I ...both of us...at the same time! left Luke with my mom and went to the gym Monday and Tuesday. It was a very romantic first two dates after Luke! hahaha.
This was the second time for Luke to meet his cousin Solomon. This time Solomon kept taking all of Luke's toys he was playing with and either he would take off with them as fast as he could go, or he'd throw them at Luke's head. Luke took it like a baby. haha
We left mom and dad's Tuesday night at 8 and Kyle drove all the way to Salina! So we only had 3 1/2 hrs left to drive yesterday. Luke slept 1 hr, cried 1 1/2 hrs and was happy for 30 minutes of that drive. We got home yesterday around 12:30.
It was great to see everyone. I was very excited to get to see Michael, Audra and Solomon. He has changed so much in the 5 months since I saw him last. And I was very excited for my dad to see Luke again (he hadn't seen him since Thanksgiving) and for Luke to meet my grandparents.
I think we'll try to go again this summer or fall. Luke needs his Grandma and Grandpa Olson! As well as Solomon!
