Sunshine, Otto and Imagination Station!

Oh the sun FINALLY came out today! We have been hoping to take Otto to the park on our babysitting day for weeks. We have a great park in Troutdale for kids by the local high school. It was the target of arsons about a year ago which is so sad. The city has plans to rebuild the part that was destroyed. There is still a lot left to be enjoyed.

Otto was excited when Grandma Linda showed up in the morning. Of course we had to play in his room. He has such an imagination of his own that makes me laugh. This is his boat he made out of these little snap together blocks.

He really gets into thing. He was into his Hot Wheels cars today. He wanted me to read the bottom of each car and we learned that some were made in China, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Malaysia! Who knew?

About 11:30 Papa Jimmy came over to take us to the park It was 80 degrees today! Don't you love his new shirt...Little Monster! Not Grandma's little boy.

He was so happy to be outside! He has a new haircut and is ready for summer.

He was catching his breath in the shade here. He found a few kids that he was having fun. I am careful about taking other children's pictures as some parents don't like to post pictures on the internet.

Papa Jimmy and his little man Otto...they love each other!

Otto wanted to jump down and then run run run out into the soccer field. He has grown a lot since last year and can do more on his own.

Yep it was a fun day at the park. He was practicing his rock climbing skills. He would climb up but then want Papa to help him get back down. That's what Papa's are for...right?

Otto was so tired when we left, he just fell on the grown and had had it! Too much fun for an almost 4 year old! It was sure a fun day at the park.

Wonderfully you had a fine weather. It was at me beautifully for five days, but today it got cold and started being falling down. Have a nice weekend.

What a fun day that must have been! Otto is a little cutie and it's pretty obvious he loves to spend time you both. He will have great memories of these days to carry with him as he remembers these days! Enjoy the rest of your weekend, Linda!
