Boys and girls

That big hurricane that the weather forecasters really hyped up? Turned out to mean a little bit of rain for a few hours in the afternoon, and nothing more. If I hadn’t known there was a tropical storm nearby, I’d never have any idea it was any more than just a typical Texas rainstorm.

Yesterday I met up for lunch with a friend I’ve known online for a while but had not met in person before. She lives in Delaware and was in Texas visiting relatives. She has a daughter the same age as my son. We met up at this cool Mexican restaurant called Lupe Tortilla that has a huge sandbox full of lots of fun sand toys on its deck. (Talk about a great marketing scheme for the restaurant…brilliant.)

Her daughter was kind of shy at first, and my son had no idea what to make of the whole thing at all–the fact that we sat down to eat with people he’d never seen before, that we kept asking him to hug the little girl, etc. (Her mom is a photographer, too, so of course we tried to engineer as many cute photo ops as possible.)

Then we asked Lyle to hold her hands…and this is what he did:

This is more what we were going for…

But then he decided he was all done with that.

It was great meeting you guys in person, and I hope we see you again the next time you come through Houston! 🙂
