We've had quite the jam-packed, fun-filled weekend over in these parts. It started yesterday with Brittany's bridal shower that I was lucky enough to photograph and then the bebes and I trekked out to the Natzke's to celebrate Miss Paisley's first birthday. Today we were able to attend Mass at the new church for the very first time and rounded out the weekend celebrating Owen's second birthday. We had an absolutely wonderful time and we were super blessed to get spend a weekend with such amazing friends.
There is one thing that became painfully clear though; Luke needs to get out more. Well, the kids and I all really need to get out more. Luke gets very quiet and won't leave my side when we go somewhere new and today he freaked out (I mean, screaming, crying, and shaking) multiple times when some kids he didn't know walked past him. He was clutching onto Keith and refused to let go. Poor guy. Part of me just wanted him to toughen up, but really I just wish he could've been more comfortable.
So. I now have a goal for myself and the kiddos to make it out at least once a week to a place that isn't someone else's home. I need to get him exposed to other kids and adults and I think this might be a way to start that process. We definitely need to get out more often. My other issue is that I need to find places that are either free or relatively cheap to take us to. Any suggestions? Hopefully Luke, Reagan, and I will find somewhere to go soon!
