love of tunnel

Lately, Orson constantly requests to "play tunnel!"
He fills the tunnel with toys and then insists we sit with him.
As you can see there isn't a lot of room for an adult...

plums and airplanes

Orson likes to wait on the front porch
for Daddio to return home from school.
Every few minutes he'll yell "Daddy! Where are you?"
and scan the street with pretend binoculars...
We had a long wait last night so we decided to check out the plum trees...
Success! Orson enjoyed his first plum of the year.

After Daddio returned home 
we had a milkshake at The Bomber Cafe.
Orson was excited to see The Bomber (a WWII B-17G).
Love the summer evenings!

summer weather

Hot weather has finally come to Oregon.
Orson was insistent on wearing snow boots on our walk 
but willingly changed footwear when we got home.

muffin man

Orson helped me make muffins (aka party cakes) this morning.
Before they could cool,
 Orson & T-Rex decided to sneak in a little tasting...

Orson got a package of dinosaurs
from the Farm today. (thank you!)
They love to roar and hug,
and were well-behaved at our neighborhood picnic tonight.
