So, mom came home one day w/ a Sandbox and swimming pool for Lucas. At first Lucas hated the sand, but loved the pool, well in Missouri, you don't have to wait long, (we got 7.3 inches of rain two days ago), and your sandbox turns into a swimming pool, and as you guessed, a big hit for Lucas.
When Betsy and Lucas flew in from Utah to Kansas City, we went to my old mission buddies house and stayed w/ him and his family. Well they have a wonderful free petting zoo there in Overland Park, KS for anyone w/ kids and a little time. Lucas absolutely loved it. You can pay to get a bottle to feed the little goats, Lucas was a bit scared at first but then he had a blast. The funniest though was that there is an area where they let the water run over the concrete so the kids can play in it. Lucas for some reason loves dunking his head in water puddles. So there he was just walking around dunking his head in the water. All the parents were frantic that the water wasn't safe, but looks like he made it okay.
While Dad was studying for boards, Lucas and Mom went out to Utah to see the whole family, I think that I (Jory) was the only one not there. Lucas apparently loved following around little Ruby (the one on the right). He loves being around other kids and it is so nice to have him get to know his cousins.
