Batman jumping off the "pirate ship"
Robin as he watches in awe...
Around here everything pertains to Batman in some way, shape, or form. Today as I looked out the back door the top picture is what I saw. YIKES!
After that took place, Luke came up and said, " Mommy, I shouldn't jump off the fort unless I have my Batman cape on." What do I say to that? I could just see us with a broken arm on the next jump. So I did what any good mother would do and grabbed my camera so I could get a picture of that! Bad me!!!
The Happy Couple!
Luke & Uncle Nonah in matching shirts.
One of many nice gifts they got at the shower.
I thought this was a cute picture of Erin!
We all are so excited to have "EE" join the Allen family on June 27th. This weekend we had a couple's shower for her and Uncle "Nonah".
Luke is going to be the "ring bear" in the wedding. He has been practicing and getting really good at it. We just need to work on getting him to not throw the pillow at the end of the isle...
I can't wait until the big day!!!

Anyway- Luke loves this song, but thinks it says "Cowboys Don't Fly". It is the funniest thing to hear him song his little heart out saying the wrong words...
Tonight he added a verse "Hutball (football) Players Dont Fly". I heard him singing that while he was playing with his blocks. I just couldnt help but laugh.

This morning we met our sweet friends Jodi & Scarlett at Froberg's in Alvin for some berry pickin'!
The kids picked, & picked, & picked!
The moms helped too!
Luke spotted a kiwi inside the farmer's market.
Then- they both found the candy, but released it without a fight...

Last night we took Luke & his friend Madi to the Rodeo to see Brooks & Dunn. This is a pic of them with Luke's classic smile.
Madi had her hand on Luke's back like this for the longest time. It was so cute!
We had lots of fun, sadly, we did not go to the petting zoo... Long story :(
The kids had fun watching the rodeo and the singers. Next year we will make it to the petting zoo.

Ford eating his lunch before his first birthday cake.
Luke enjoyed his blue "hupcake".
My dear friend Amy and her precious little one year old. I can't believe how fast that year has flown by.
Today we celebrated Ford's 1st birthday at a park near Amy's house. We couldn't have asked for a better day to have a party in the park. It was beautiful! Luke had lots and lots of fun meeting some new friends and playing with Ford.

Tonight Caleb helped Luke fill out his first bracket for March Madness. Lets just put it this way if Luke knows what he's doing there will be A LOT of upsets this year...
It was so funny to hear him pronounce the names of the teams. With 20 picks left he said "Daddy I am finished with all the numbers".
Caleb kept him going until the whole bracket was complete and was so proud to hear Luke pick Duke over Texas! If he knows nothing else about this system, he needs to know that Duke should always beat Texas. We can rest assured that we have raised him right.
To top it all off, he has Duke winning it all.
Happy March Madness Everyone!
