Late Spring in Houston

Well, the Houston weather is beginning to feel like summer to me, but I am trying to keep thinking of it as "late spring," so that I am not shocked when the humidity and temperature goes up. So far, we have had a lovely Spring. We have been outside nearly every day. The mosquitoes are beginning to put a damper on going out into the backyard, but there are still ways to get outdoors. One is to go to Bethany and Evan's house. They don't seem to have as many mosquitoes, and of course there is the added bonus of having cousin Clara to play with. :)

With the warmer weather, has come a change in wardrobe for us all. Here is Luke in the "overalls without shirt" look:
Aren't babies cute in summer?

Houston has really adapted to the heat. Today, Luke and I went to Hermann Park again. This time, he walked all the way from the car, down past the water feature, around the pond and to the playground. (Yes, lots of water here! Best place to be when its hot)

Since it was nearly ninety degrees this morning, we had an impromptu romp in the splash park area and Luke loved it. He splashed all over, giggled, and chased the birds away. Here is a video to show you what the splash park is like. There are several free parks like this throughout the city.

Adorable! I didn't realize it's already that hot! Wow! But summer starts here later and lasts longer into the fall than Texas, I think. So, maybe we have almost the same amount of months that are hot?
Luke is so cute!! So fun to see his sweet little face and plump little body!

That brings us a smile to see Luke enjoying the water and toddling around in the puddles. And we love his no shirt look-quite the handsome little shoulders:)
