Discovering a New Park with Friends

It's always fun to watch toddler boys play together--they provide great entertainment for us adults.  I got to do this recently, and had such a fun time.   Luke and I met some friends, Sarah and Ford, at lunchtime this week for a play date at an AWESOME park

This is a super-cool three story playhouse, that is actually lit inside.
Once Luke discovered it, it was hard to keep him away from the inside of the playhouse.  He kept wanting to crawl up the narrow stairway, which was made for toddlers--not so much for adults.
This was just outside the playhouse--a musical instrument made of varying size metal lids.
Luke's friend, Ford, who is almost 14 months old.

Luke liked going up and down the stairs.  I am trying to teach him how to go down the stairs safely (by holding on to the rail and watching his feet).  He likes to try to run down the stairs, not watching where his feet are going.  Unfortunately, Luke doesn't comprehend the word, careful, yet. 
Ford, on the other hand, is very cautious.  Good job, Ford.
I will say though, that over the past couple of days, Luke has been very careful going down the stairs.  Perhaps he learned from Ford.

Toddler boys are just different than toddler girls.  When boys go to a park, some of their favorite things to do are to find rocks, leaves, and bugs, even with all of the awesome playground equipment.  Here is Ford discovering a cool leaf.
