Meet my pal, Lukas.
Lukas loves dinosaurs. He likes to line them up.
He likes to count them.
He likes to arrange them on top of things.
And most of all, he loves to knock them all over!
And then we all laugh about it. Then Lukas repeats. Line ‘em up, count ‘em all, knock ‘em over, laugh. Repeat.
Lukas’ mom is one smart lady. A lot of times when we have pictures taken of our kids, we hesitate to allow toys or anything else in the picture with them. However, sometimes their favorite toys make the image better, personal and more meaningful. Chances are Lukas won’t love these dinosaur toys forever. That’s why I love that she brought these along. Not only did we capture his precious three year old smile, but also his three year old interests.
Lukas has amazing parents who are extremely talented. And I’m lucky enough to have them as some of my closest friends.
In the spirit of throwback Thursday, I’m sharing these pictures of Lukas’ mom before he was born and her sweet message to him.
Along with today’s sweet message.
I love Lukas’ reaction
And one last shot of the whole beautiful family.
Thanks for being so patient with me.
Check out Kase’s book due out later this year on Craniosynostosis, a Congenital Skull Deformity.
And a book that both Kase and Mary worked on, Utah Reflections, a collection of stories about the Wasatch Front.
