family vacation

To celebrate Daddio's birthday,
the family took a long overdue trip
to the coast.
We enjoyed seafood, sand, and the ocean...

Thank you beach,
hope to be back soon!

daddy's boy

Orson doesn't always want to smile for the camera...

But telling him to think about Daddio
 guarantees a smile...

mall day

Orson was pleased to discover
the mall playground had reopened.
We spent a long day playing...
And then we went to a movie with Daddio...
There was time for an arcade game
before the show,
Orson chose "Guitar Hero"...
And then it was time for popcorn and the show.
On the way home
Orson said his favorite part of the day
 was "everything!"

under the weather...

Orson's been sick the last few days.
But I can tell he's starting to feel better
because his silliness is back...

Orson spied a dinosaur family in the park 
needing help building a nest.
He spent an hour gathering sticks, leaves, petals and grass...

dinosaur daze

Orson has been waiting for months
for the dinosaur exhibit to open at the children's museum.
He woke me up at 4am this morning to remind me 
that today was the day!

 So fun... 
It was worth the wait!
