Luke meets the Bontragers

This weekend my mom's side of the family in Indiana had a little open house/shower so everyone could meet Luke. He charmed everyone, and my aunts couldn't get enough of his squishy little chubby legs! :) What a handsome little guy, huh? We stayed with my cousin Emily and her husband Jim. She also hosted the party at her house (all while being 11 weeks pregnant and tired!). Thanks for everything Emily!!My cousin Kristina and I were originally due with our babies 2 days apart, but Cara ended up coming into the world several weeks before Luke. Here are Luke and Cara saying hello!
All the babies! Aunt Mollie has Luke (8 weeks), Aunt Elma has my cousin Tina's son Caleb (7 months), and Aunt Ruth has Cara (3 months).

On Saturday, Jim gave us a ride with his antique John Deere tractor.

Luke wasn't sure what to think of it, but I think he liked it!
Every Saturday, Jim gives rides to kids in the trailer park close by to where they live. They came running when they saw us coming. Such a neat opportunity to love on some kids who desperately need it!
