Luke Learns to Drive

One of the joys of fatherhood is teaching your son to drive. Well, the time has come for Luke to take this next important step in his human (manly) development…

It started out as a quick trip to the dollar store to pick up my sister who’s car had broken down. Since it was a RARE warm afternoon, and a very short ride, I thought I’d let Luke have his first ride with the top down! (note the shades for wind, and the blanket for warmth!) Plus, mommy was out with a friend, so no need to worry about whether mom approved. (!)


Just as I got to the end of the street, mom and her friend turned onto the street, and I was caught red-car-ed, er, I mean, red-handed! So mom jumped out of one car, and into mine to join us for the short ride!

Best view in the world…
(note Darth on the dash pointing which way to go!)

Once we got to our destination, we had to wait for the toe truck, er, tow truck to arrive, so we had some time to kill. After too long in the dollar store asking, “How much is this?” Luke and I were booted out.

So I took the opportunity to give him some behind the wheel time in the parking lot just as my father before me did when I was a youngster! (a brick on the gas pedal did the trick)

He showed a natural talent for driving! (received from his dad, of course)

And soon he was racing around the parking lot, but I was able to get this picture as he sped by! Next thing, he’s gonna want to take some cute little baby girl out on a date!

That’s ONE COOL Baby!

  2. hmmm, Mom does not like Lukie driving just yet. There’s drool, the whole problem of hand eye coordination, and i don’t think he’s using the turn signals correctly. He should at the very least be able to open the door by himself and get in before he can drive, oh, and he should also be done with his binky. Daddy, you are so busted for driving with the top down with my sheltered baby boy. Tsk, tsk, tsk.

  3. That little guy just gets cuter and cuter, if that’s even possible. Love his hair! Thanks for keeping me up on your family this way. I love it!

  4. I think Baby Incredible is a cutie behind the wheel. He can drive me anywhere!!! :)

    I love your blog Karl. Especially all the pictures you take. Thank you!
