back to the zoo

Orson loves going to the zoo.
He never knows what animal might come out to see him!
Sometimes the animals are very active,
but there are times when Orson has to wait patiently...

it's harder with two...

Taking (non-blurry) pictures of these cousins was a challenge!
(and so was coordinating their eating and sleeping schedules)

a few more photos...

Ok, I need to wrap up the pictures of the Sherman's visit!

Here are a few more fun moments we had!

Calvin's main occupation while visiting was opening and closing the cabinet doors,
and he practiced daily...

Now that Calvin had started walking,
Aunt Kristin had to constantly follow behind him...
(my back hurt just watching her!)

Did I mention we celebrated Aunt Kris's B-Day? (a day late)
Our family loves a good reason to wear a party hat! 

It was fun to watch Calvin and his Uncle Byron play...
And Calvin loved showing off his new walking skills!

We took the Shermans to the mall on a rainy day.
Orson showed them his favorite things to do.
Such as,
sit on the coin-operated rides
(without putting any coins in).

And play on the playground...

Then Orson got a rare treat...
a ride on the carousel!
This was Calvin's first time riding a horse,
and Orson was more than happy
 to join him and Aunt Kristin!

rub a dub

Orson has always loved a bath.
But bathtime was even more fun
when Cousin Calvin joined him!

family and friends

Cousin Ryan met up with us for breakfast one morning.
He got to admire Calvin's cuteness
and catch-up with Orson...

The next day we had dinner with Leah.
She took on the exciting task of entertaining
Calvin and Orson at the same time...
(her glasses were a hit!)

shermans in our park!

We tried to get outside with the Shermans
anytime the rain would stop.
Orson liked showing them our park
and the jungle path...
(and he loved Uncle Todd acting like a monster!)

Orson was excited to show Cousin Calvin,
Aunt Kristin, and Uncle Todd our zoo!
The weather was sunny and perfect,
and the boys had fun exploring...

at market with the shermans

The Shermans arrived in Oregon 
at the perfect time to see
 the cherry blossoms along the waterfront...

Byron had his hands full while watching Orson & Calvin
 while Kristin & Todd did a little shopping...
