Every Wednesday Orson & Ayla & I head to the library for storytime. The kiddos like the stories but they love the rug...

window shoppers

Before heading to an indoor playground, Orson likes to window shop, but he lingers a bit longer in front of the cars...

happy spring!

Ayla wanted to celebrate the first day of Spring by giving Orson a wagon ride...

Since she & Orson weigh about the same, she settled for swinging instead...

flowers in march...

Today was sunny so we spent as much time outside as possible...
This included 2 long walks, 3 park trips, endless yard exploration, and 1 attempt to go grocery shopping but ending with Orson & I eating french fries at a diner (and going home without groceries).

Orson's Birthday - The Car Cake!


When the big moment of singing "happy birthday" came, Orson made sure the scene was set just right... He went straight for his party hat and knew just what to do.

silly birthday practice

For the past few weeks Orson has been practicing for his birthday.  Sometimes it involves a "hat" (in the picture his hat is actually a bucket) but it always includes us singing to him and then Orson blows out the "candles."  We can't wait for the real event, just a few days away!
