Here is Dorian watering grandmas flowers. He would give the flowers a drink and then give himself one! Also, a pic of our garden. This is when we just planted. We now have starts of pumpkins and tomato's!

Dorian also planted sunflower seeds and ALL of those have sprouted up, so he will have about 15-20 sunflowers to tend to! He loves watching them grow and loves watering everything. Posted by Picasa

We painted outside the other day.
I ran inside to get a drink, and I came back only a min later
and Dorian had painted himself! He was very proud of his "work"!

The weather is getting nice here in good old Oregon, finally!
We are able to have dinners outside and play outside without getting soaked and cold.

Dorian loves looking for "tato bugs" and worms. Ash and Dorian got our garden all ready to plant seeds today. We will plant for sure tomato's and pumpkins, I would love to do raspberries but I have heard they are very hard to start. So, we will see. Dorian has talked all day about how the pumpkins will grow. He remembers from last year. He was standing in the middle of the garden and told Ash "Pour water on me so I will grow!". SOOOO SWEET!!! I told him that he was big enough already, we don't want him to grow anymore!

Dorian is counting to 11 and is getting the ABC down. He still mixes them up some times, but when he says them when no one is looking he always says them correctly. He loves coloring, playing with clay, LOVES band-aids, hunting ghosts and just running around like a wild man and getting into trouble when he can! He is a wonderful little boy.

Here is more about Cannon Beach:


We had alot of fun. Dorian just loves the beach and he
already asked to go back the same day, so we will go back very soon.

Ashar VS the Kite!!
This kite gave us a run for our money.
It was AWFUL to put together, and in the end the thing would
not fly! There was plenty of wind but the "dragons" wings would
not stay up! We tried over and over. I think some, or I should
say most people watching us were getting in a good laugh!

On our way home this car was on the side of the road in flames!
The driver was on the side of the road with 1 police car.
We drove by it and the heat off of it was amazing.
It felt like you opened up an over when we put the window down
to take a photo. Posted by Picasa
We went to Fir Point Farms which is a local produce stand and
they also have animals. I ran out of batteries in the camara so
only got 2 photos. We went with Dorians buddies, Avery & Sissy.
We had a picnic lunch. The kids love it there. They have
goats, sheep, a BIG pig & bunny rabbits.
