One of Orson's favorite things to say lately is
"Daddy is my best friend."

music man

Orson has always enjoyed music.
 (this morning in the car he said "i love rock n' roll)
He has started coming up with his own songs.
Today Orson has been singing one of my favorites... "Daddy is a Dinosaur."
And last night he sang (the soon to be classic) "I Want Cheesy Noodles."

indoor picnic

Between being sick and rainy days, 
Orson & I are finding new ways to have fun indoors.
Orson suggested we have a picnic inside.
He picked out the food
so we enjoyed tomato soup, sunflower seeds,
tortilla chips and raisins...

family love

Orson spent Valentine's Day feeling sick
so I'll share some pictures from our family's outing
on Sunday to the "big kid" playground...
Orson loved riding his new (to him) bike!

It was fun to play an imaginary game of basketball...

Orson & Daddio explored the playground...

We tried out every swing...
Happy Valentine's Day to our families & friends!

Orson greeted Daddio home every evening this week with a dinosaur roar.
On Friday Orson dressed the part...

blog catch-up!

Since it's been over a week since I've updated the blog,
I'll do a little review starting with
last Saturday...
we had sun!

Orson & I made Daddio put down his books
and we took a long drive along the Columbia River...

We ended up in St. Helens, Oregon
and found a great playground right by the river...

The boats and fishermen were fun to watch...

And lastly we had to get a little nourishment
in the form of an ice cream sundae...

auntie leah!

Leah came and spent Wednesday with us!
She and Orson took a car ride ending with Orson napping
and she took this picture...
We did a little shopping
and Orson got a "cool" helmut,
which made for fun good-bye kisses and nose-rubs...
We loved seeing you Leah!
