zoo day

We miss Ryan & Matt now that they live downtown (more on that later).  So today Orson, Ayla, & I invited them to a morning walk at the zoo...

The tigers were amazing... 

The drums have always been Orson's favorite... video

It was sunny but cold so we warmed up inside with a snack...

Thanks for the fun morning guys!

Orson, Ayla & I are stuck inside on cold, rainy days.  Last week we made our own playdough...

Orson's technique involved tearing it into little pieces...

Ayla worked on a larger scale...

Orson, Daddio & I went to see the light display at the zoo on Friday night.  It was great, Orson's eyes were huge as we wandered about the million lights...

santa baby

It was interesting that Orson instinctively knew to sit on Santa's lap...

it's beginning to look a little like christmas...

 Our tree is slowly getting decorated. I say slowly because Orson keeps "undecorating" the tree.

super orson returns

 The best thing about your halloween costume actually being pajamas is that you can wear it again...
