bon voyage

Orson & I are off on a 15 day adventure to see family in Illinois, Wisconsin, and Indiana. Byron is staying in Portland and taking exams. Good luck Daddio! I will try to post from the road but I can't make any promises...

We went to the Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm on Monday. The flowers were amazing!

We brought along Orson's new wagon, which was great for hauling the kids and all our stuff!

Leah took a break from her picture taking (she took 943 pictures!!!) to try out one of the tractors.
The tulip farm does a great job in providing fun little extras...
Orson's needs a new pair of shoes but these were a little big...
And this shoe was so big it upset him! (look at Naomi giggling on the left:)
And there were lots and lots of tulips!

Thanks for a great day ladies!

Sorry for the delay in postings! Orson has been sick and we haven't slept much... but we are still managing to have fun. Orson loves my scarves (perfect to play peek-a-boo with) so I let him wear one around the apartment...

happy birthday to ayla!!!

Happy 2nd Birthday to sweet little Ayla!!!

easter eggs!

Much to Orson's surprise, the Easter Bunny snuck in to our home and hid eggs while we slept! Luckily, Orson's thoughtful Grandmas sent him cute Easter baskets to hold his eggs and treats!

All of Orson's bunny friends (and Mr. Lamb) gathered to cheer him on!

Orson was a natural egg finder... and he caught right on to putting the eggs in his baskets...

He tried out different gathering techniques...
Orson let me hold a few eggs...
Daddio & Orson read "The Tale of Benjamin Bunny" that Grandma Sarah sent us...
We ended the day with a walk in the rain...
Happy Easter everyone!

happy easter!

Happy egg hunting to all... here's Orson last year on Easter... I will post pictures from this year soon...
