Orson 17 months

Recently, Orson discovered his happy place....blueberry bushes in Apple Hill. In just a few short minutes, he ate his weight in blueberries and then, joy of joys, he found the raspberry bushes! We got pounds of berries for great prices and straight off the bush, they tasted like fresh home made jam. I can't wait to pull them out of the freezer in the middle of winter to enjoy in muffins, cookies and more!
A mole popped up right next to Orson while we were picking! Good thing it couldn't see very well, otherwise it would have been terrified :)

Summer has arrived in Sacramento, with temps in the 90s to 100s almost everyday. We have been staying busy with play dates, adventures and fun. Our favorite playdate lately has been going to Jamie and Olivia's for swimming on Fridays. Orson enjoys the pool but only for a little bit at a time, he apparently has no body fat and therefore gets cold even when its 90 degrees outside...must take after his mother :) Anyway, here are a few pictures of him and his friends in the pool.

And in our little pool in the back yard, he prefers the water to be hot tub temperature and then he dives straight in, clothes and all.

We have also discovered water parks (there are lots of little ones around town that are free). Orson is not entirely sure if he likes the shooting fountains of doom....he ended up with lots of faces full of water but he sure got out there and tried. It was funny because most of his friends were just plain terrified of the fountains.

Lots of time in the car = mom in the backseat sometimes. Its worth it for a shot like this.

We had a lunch playdate at Whole Foods a few weeks ago. We sat down to lunch and I realized that everyone's mom was MIA! Well my dates were the cutest ones, anyways :)

Orson finished up his gymnastics for the next little bit. It was amazing to see how confident he became over just a few short weeks. Now he loves to spin and jump at home too.

Sleeping has become a new adventure. Orson is getting so big that he has a hard time getting comfortable at night sometimes....I'm not sure how this position ended up being the way to go.

And he finally has enough hair for some real bed head! I love it.

And here are a few of my favorite mug shots from the past month:
Lucy is all grown up now that she has been abroad :)
