Flashback Friday

Being first time parents, we were very cautious with where we took Luke before he had his 2 month shots. In fact, the only place he went during his first 2 months of life, besides an occasional trip to Target, was an Auburn basketball game, and he was strapped in the baby bjorn the entire time.

A couple of days after he got his shots, Luke took his first trip to Indiana to meet Ryan's family. Luke was an excellent traveler, he slept most of the way, and we were even able to feed him in the car.

Meeting cousin Hillarie for the first time
Luke was the first great grandson on the Sparks' side, there were already 5 great granddaughters (4 born in the same year!)
You should've seen the chaos at Christmas this past year!

While we were in Madison the biggest snowstorm (I would call it a blizzard) in decades hit. It snowed for several days, it was gorgeous! They got about 2-3 feet of snow and my mother-in-law said she hadn't seen snow like that since she was a kid.

yes, that is my husband wearing SHORTS in a BLIZZARD

Luke loved being bundled up in his blizzard gear!

We thought it was pretty cool that Luke experienced his first blizzard during his first road trip, but we had no idea what was in store for him on his second road trip just a couple of weeks later...stay tuned for next week's Flashback Friday to find out what other weather phenomenon Luke experienced at only 2 months old.
