Story Time at the Park

On Friday morning we met up with our buddies the Dixions at the Lakeview park in Provo. It was Provo cities last story time in the park of the summer. 
Silly one. 
Lucas sat with me at first. He was unsure of his new surroundings. 
Soon enough though, he was looking for greener pastures. 
He was off meeting other mothers and babies. 
The program began with a song. 
And the puppet Steve.
At first Lucas was really into it. 

After a minute he was not as into it. 

And he ran away again. 
Then back again, he was feeling a little sleepy, it was nap time. 

The other kids were still loving it. 
We learned the There Once was a Yodeler
