We had the pleasure of having Lucas' birth mother, Julie, come and stay and play with us for a few days. Lucas was shy at first (it was close to naptime), but then he warmed up to her pretty quickly. He loved chasing her. I think one of my favorite things of the weekend was Lucas asking Julie, "Go jump on Julie's bed?" and then they would go jump and play. He loved showing off for her. It was great to see them together playing and laughing.
|Lucas waiting for Julie to get off the plane|
|This was right before he pushed her off the rock|
|I love this picture of Ryan and Lucas|
|Playing in the backyard|
|We went on a gondola ride to see the falls|
|His first carousel ride. He chose to ride on the tiger because it didn't go up and down.|
|Looking back at Julie and me|
|The largest Radio Flyer wagon in the world. Julie wasn't too impressed, |
I think we made it seem bigger and cooler than it was.
|This was the first time that Ryan realized that the blocks say something|
|We went on a hike around Lake Couer d'Alene (Julie got to visit Washington and Idaho)|
|It was a beautiful hike|
|We went to an arena football game (Ryan and I went to one on our first date)|
|Lucas made this in Nursery at church, so cute!|
|Sunday evening we went to a great park|
|I wish we would have brought our camera. I love this picture, but unfortunately it was just on my phone.|
|Opening the package from Grandma Angie. He loved the Toy Story stickers!|
|And the Batman cape!|
|He went straight for the Buzz sticker|
|Combination of Batman and Puss in Boots with the hat|
|The cape makes a great blanket for when Batman pretends to sleep.|
|Love these two!|
We are so grateful for the relationship that we have with Julie. It was so much fun to have her be here and see Lucas in his own environment. We love Julie! We are so happy to have an open adoption. Thanks for coming and visiting!
|He loves playing T-ball and running the bases|
|Lucas loves playing with his friend Brooklyn|
|"I spray Mommy!"|
|Drinking from the hose|
|Figured it out|
|Grandma Darcey sent these yard tools and Lucas loves helping in the yard|
|He was really getting into raking|
|Then the sprinklers came on and he knew just what to do|
|I love this face|

We got Lucas a balance bike this last week. It is a two wheeler with no pedals so he just uses his feet to walk/ride. It seems like it will be a great bike for him to learn how to balance instead of using training wheels. We are excited for him to use it.

|Riding for the first time|

We had a wonderful Easter weekend. The weather was amazing and the best that we have had for Easter in so long. Lucas played outside and loved every second. We went to our friend's house on Saturday for an Easter egg hunt and he was pretty excited about it and loved picking up the eggs because he knew there was candy in them. We forgot our camera so these pictures were just on my phone.
On Sunday after church and naps, we went to Ryan's parent's house for an Easter egg hunt and dinner. Lucas loves being with his cousins and had a blast on round 2.
|He had collected quite a few eggs and then saw the airplane, set his basket down and ran for the airplane instead of finding more eggs|
|He was so proud of this hat and proceeded to make us all wear it|
