*The adventures of Oliver Berry*Mascot Exchange

Please only post your June Berrie journey here and not any comments so it doesn't become unmanageable. If you want to comment on anyone's pictures (and by all means, please do), start a new thread in the general posting section.

Upon receiving Oliver:

1. PM me to find out where he is going next- or you can just post here that you have him and then use that space to add your pics with the edit feature. I will PM you the address the the mamma who you will be shipping the mascot to.

2. Go crazy with the pictures!

3. Try to include a postcard from your town or something significant from your area in the passport he comes with. Also maybe include some information about your baby. Each mother will get 1 page to decorate as she pleases.

A couple of notes:

Please spend no more than a week with Oliver before sending him to the next Mama. If something comes up and you need extra time, let me know. We can prob work something out.

Before sending him off to the next mommy. Please put him through the washer inside a pillowcase (to slow down the wear and tear process, he will end up getting washed multiple times and we want to try to keep him fresh and new looking.)

Please ladies lets not let Oliver get lost. I have herd of other boards doing this..and they ended up having to get a new one. I understand things happen but please lets try to be good about this. Let me know if anything happens and we will deal with it. Also, you don't have to keep the mascot for a full week sending it off earlier would be great. This mascot adventure is going to take a LONG time and I know some of the mammas are so excited to receive the mascot.

Okay, here is the itinerary in order - it's not set in stone, though if you have not signed up and you would like to join in on the fun just PM me. I am sure we can stick you in or add you at the end of our list:

Oliver's visit with Johnathan & Matthew...

Guess who's HERE!!!

Hi there! Oliver here...

Just wanted to update you all on my travels. I have arrived safe and sound here in Southern California.

The twins were actually napping when I arrived, but I was greeted by these two. They said the hospital transport team sent them to take care of the boys and their Mama Bear.

.
.
.

We chatted for a while... (turns out we're like 9th cousins, 12 times removed... or something like that)...
[SIZE=1].[/SIZE]
[SIZE=1].
.
[/SIZE]
I showed them my passport... and promised them that the next time I came for a visit, it would be a LOT more full! They reminded me that I should get my passport photos taken.

[SIZE=1].[/SIZE]
[SIZE=1].
.
We became fast friends... CHEEEEEESE!!![/SIZE]

(Ok, so J&M's Mama Bear has photoshop... We all know my face can't really do that):rolleyes:
.
.
.

The boys were still asleep so I went to get my passport photos taken...

OOPS, those were my mug shots! (Got in a little trouble on my way down here from Oregon... but I swear it wasn't me!! I was framed by Teddy!!)
.
.
.
.
.
.
Really? The boys are still sleeping??

[SIZE=1].
.
.
Actually.... (yawn).... I'm a bit tired myself after my long flight... and I think I see a pretty cozy spot right there...

[/SIZE]
zzzzzZZZZZZZZZ.........
.
.

Finally awake!!
Meeting Johnathan...


.
.
.
and meeting the 2nd Matthew of my journey... Biggrin


Heehee... I think he likes me Smile
.

Teacher's here! Time for physical therapy...
Johnathan's turn first today...

On the exercise ball....

I'll think I'll help Matthew wait for his turn...

Ok, ok, I'll try it....

That's harder than it looks when you're a little guy...

Matthew's turn...

.
.

Stretching our legs...

.
.
.
Hanging out... oh good, this one likes me too! Biggrin

.
.
.
Ok guys... no need to fight over me... you can share...

Help! I can't breathe.....


.
.
trying to escape...

.
.
Ok... umm... I guess I did tell you to share...
Sharing is great...:rolleyes:

Part 2:


Hey there! Oliver here, with the rest of my pictures from my visit with Johnathan and Matthew...
.
.

Hanging out at the gym... (the playgym):

.
.
.

Have to get my daily dose of the JuneBerries:

.
.
.
Proving that rivals can be friends ;)....

.
.
Hugs from big brother Robby:

.
.

Going for a walk:

This stroller even has special "bear holders":

.

...But I took turns riding with Johnathan and Matthew.

We saw a lot of AMAZING sights!

.
.
(These were both outfits handed down from Robby)

.
.
After that, the boys let me try on their hats...


.
.

"Ummm... Do you have anything smaller?"

.
.

This is much better! (J's first hat)

.
.

Love this one!!

(Watch blog for then & now comparison pics with the MM ears)

.
.
(FUN FACT: My head is about the same size that the twins' heads were when they were born!!)
.
.

.
.

Seeing how this was my only Southern California stop, I had really hoped I'd be able to hit all the major tourist attractions: Hollywood, Disneyland and other amusement parks, the beach, etc... but when the transport team bears explained why the boys were homebound, I understood.
.

Little did I know that the boys had planned a surprise for me.... a secret trip with Auntie Shannon to......
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.

DISNEYLAND!!!!!
.

Obviously, that's me with the castle above... and here I am in front of the entrance to California Adventure...

Just look at how my fur shines in the California sun...
Oh, I'll move so you can see the "C" in "California"

.
.
I was too short for most of the rides, so I had to hide in her purse a lot. But I did get to shamelessly ride:
.

the carousel.....

.
.
the teacups....

.
.
and the Buzz Lightyear ride....

.
.
.
Here's me with a Mickey Pumpkin...

.
.
.
and me with my lunch... a diet coke and a HUGE corndog...

.
.
.
.
and me with my new pals... Wink

.
.
.
.
.
Saying goodbye to J&M....

.
.
They gave me a little suitcase for collecting souveniers on my trip... (you can see it better when I come to your place to visit)...

.
.
.
.

Farewell Johnathan & Matthew! I'm off to meet Olivia and her family...

Soo.....I got a phone call at work from DH announcing that Mr. Oliver Berry had arrived on Tuesday afternoon!!!! He knew how much mommy wanted to be there when his transport box was opened, so Olivia was asleep for the night by the time mommy got home to open it. Thus, it wasnt until Wednesday that Oliver got to meet Olivia...here are the pics from their first meeting:

Olivia and Oliver hangin' tough in the the swing~

BFF's already!!!!

Apparently mommy needs to clean the mirror~

both of them dont look at the camera very well, do they~ lol!

All bears like to have their butt scratched, right? Olivia really enjoyed his tag!!!lol!

Dh did a great job taking those pics, huh?!?!

When mommy got home, she packed up the ollies and took them on the road trip, to the disneyland of Fresno, BABIES R US !!!

But of course, shopping makes the princess sleepy~ so Oliver helped mommy find Olivia big girl 8oz bottles~

And the we had to stop at the bear potty, for a potty break.

See, the closesest thing in Fresno to Disneyland!!!!

Later that night, Dh wanted his pic taken with the great celebrity, Oliver Berry.

That evening, both Ollies were treated to a nice spa and massage~

oooh yeahh (in the coolaid man's voice)

Mommy had a great interview for her credential program, so Auntie Christina took us all out for some drinks!!!!!

Getting ready to go:

Yay for mommy!!! (thats a virgin milkshake for me)

Autnie Christina

And of course Mr. Oliver Berry kickin back a few shots as well~!!!

After our fun filled afternoon, it was time to get all cleaned up and boxed up to visit Nathan!!!!!!!

Hey everyone sorry I haven't been around to tell you what I've been up to, it's been a couple of crazy days. Here is the story so far.

I had to travel with the pump, in her purse
Photobucket
But I got a good seat
Photobucket
Now: I'm pooped.... I'm going to sleep!
Photobucket

Photobucket
Photobucket
The Famous Fountains:
Photobucket

And it's blurry.. but the Las Vegas Sign

I had such a good time with Sydney and Momma Melissa. Although while being in the city of sin, I did fall in love. All we did was cuddle, but man she is special.

Oliver in ARIZONA

Oliver arrived late Saturday afternoon, and Kade's big sister unpacked him while Momma Beth took advantage of the last few rays of sunlight in a quick photoshoot.

Kade was having none of it... not interested in photos today, but maybe he will try again soon. Oliver was the only one who could calm him down.

Oliver like the idea and wanted a photo of himself too!

After that the sun started to set. Oliver saw a lot of cacti....

And a lot of desert...

Can't wait to see what adventures we will have together!
Well life isn't too exciting here at Kade's house. Mom goes to work and Dad stays home with Kade. Dad spends most of the day with ESPN on the tv (booooring) and Kade and I play on the play mat and nap.

We did have some delicious triple chocolate surprise cupcakes yesterday...
check my suitcase for the recipe!

We took a bath before bed...


I didn't want to get wet since I only bathe once a week... so I hung out with Mr. Ducky

We had fun playing blocks

Waiting for breakfast in the bumbo

I like it when Kade chews on his fingers instead of on me!

Sweet dreams!

Hello All,
I am on my way to Texas, but wanted to fill you in on the rest of my visit with Kade and his family... Beth is having problems logging in and can only post from one computer at her house right now... so she apologizes for the delay in posting.

In any case... Kade and I watched his big brother's soccer game. It is chilly in the mornings here!

After the game the family surprised me by packing up the minivan and hitting the road. We drove for a LOOOONG time. I saw a lot of this...



And finally I saw this!!! The windows were nasty dirty after so many hours driving through the desert... but for those of you who can't tell... this is the international border!!!

MEXICO!!! Cuando yo estaba sur de la frontera, aprendi muuuy rapido como hablar espanol. Hay muchas ositas guapas alla, pero solo las mire... no toque. Jugabamos en la playa y disfrutamos la comida y gente!
We went to the beach...


It was Kade's first visit outside the country... he loved the sand, but it wasn't too tasty.

Kade's big sister posed with me

The sunset was beautiful

Our hotel (the same one Kade's parents got married at) was right off the ocean.


The next day we did some shopping



I found the sombreros, but they were waaay too big

Finally we found one my size, but it was too big for my suitcase, so I grabbed a seashell instead.

Over all it was a fun visit to Arizona AND Mexico! Can't wait to meet the girls in Texas and enjoy the rest of my adventure.
P.S. Kade's daddy called Kade's mom a dork cuz of the page she included in my passport! Hope you all like it though.

What a busy Holiday week!! Twins keep us busy on their own. Add in insane family, traveling all over the place, bad weather and colds in the mix and it's down right crazyness!!

Pics!

I arrived late Christmas Eve.

First thing I got to do was watch Lina make last minute pumpkin bread for the Christmas Eve party they were off to, pretty much as soon as it came out of the oven. When Lina's DH got home from work it was mad dash time!

Said pumpkin bread in progress~


Watching the baking with Elly.

Amelia was asleep but once she was up she was happy to see me. I even sat and had some Cheerios with her.

Then it was off to meet some family with the girls for the very first time. I was really nervous about meeting all these new people, but the girls had a lot of fun and told me it was ok. Little did I know this was the first of many family outings I got to go on. Everyone was so nice!


I helped them open some gifts and then I helped play with them too.

We got home late and everyone went to bed. Actually the girls fell asleep on the ride home.

The next day was Christmas. We were up bright and early and I helped the girls open gifts from Santa.


The girls both liked the wrapping paper best.

Then we packed up and went off to meet more family for the first time, but the girls knew most of the people here all ready. Lina and her DH were greeted with the craziness of Granny Kathy. They discussed a small Christmas. She agreed upon a small Christmas, and she didn't do it. We were greeted with this when we came in and were then told there was more in the bedroom, and another carload on the way. Lina and her DH didn't seem very happy, but the girls had fun eating all kinds of pretty bows and paper. We were occupied non stop. So much so the girls didn't nap and were really cranky and when we left in the evening they passed out in the car in no time.

Craziness!!

Then we arrived at another house and had more Christmas!! This time much more relaxing and the girls got to nap! Here's Amelia and I playing with her Grandpa Charlie.

The next day was spent running last minute errands for the trip and packing. They packed so much stuff!! I didn't realize how much baby gear twins need, but it was a LOT. I also got to tag along to Elaine's PT. I didn't get to go in with her so I played with Amelia in the waiting room while we waited.

Waiting is harder than you think.

When we got home another set of grandparents greeted us and we have more family time!

We got up early early the next morning to make the trek up north and oh the bad weather. There was fog and ice and snow and even lightning both ways!! It was scary and I was glad I didn't have to drive. This is what it looked like pretty much the entire drive. The drive home was a bit clearer for the second half, but even worse for the first if you can imagine!

We stopped for food on the way. I got to sit between the girls at breakfast on the way up.

There was more new people to meet and more holiday fun. We even stayed in a hotel. Elaine seemed to not mind the hotel. Amelia on the other hand was up at least every two hours. Finally she hopped in bed with Lina and her DH, but it didn't seem to help much. I think she just wanted to be in her own crib. Here we are one morning, playing in Lina's bed.

We got home before New Years, but Lina got really sick, and so did the girls. They all got in to see doctors before the were closed again which was good because they all needed medicine. Because they were sick just Lina's DH and I stayed up to watch the ball drop.

Happy New Year!!

You'd think they'd be done, but no. More holiday family fun was to come, even with sniffles. Elaine and Amelia are realy lucky to have so much family, but man did it make for a busy week! I had a really good time and can't wait to meet the next family~

Ok, so it doesn't look like we're going to do anything interesting given the awful weather we've had. So, I found some pics of places we would have gone to wet the appatite. Hopefully, we'll get at least a few fun shots (other than napping and tummy time) before we mail him off in a day or so.

Lastly the Toledo Museum of Art

Maybe if we do this again, I'll get him at a better time or year (or at least when the weather isn't so bad) and we'll actually get to go to these places, lol.

Gave up on my photosharing software. 4 computer crashes and 2 operating system reloads later we have photobucket pics from what I could salvage.

Oliver arrived in Massachusetts on Valentine's Day!

A package, for me??


Its Oliver!

Hanging out with Daddy



:eek: Oliver, we're upside down!

Hi Everyone! I'm having a great time here in Massachusetts with Ben and his family. I just wanted to check in and let you know what I've been up to.

Sunday morning we woke up nice and early and Ben started chewing on me right away. Not sure what thats about, but his mom told me that he bites and chews everything and that it was a sign of affection. Ben and I were kind of confused as to why his mom was snapping pictures so early in the morning, but we just went with it.



Hmm, starting to get a little tired. A nap sounds pretty good...

After Ben's nap he ate some fruit. I hung out next to him. He offered me a bite, but I wasn't really hungry then.

Later on we decided to ride on Ben's fire truck!!





Ben was kind of fussy on Sunday so we hung out at home for most of the day. My experience with babies tells me that he might be getting some more teeth!
At the end of the day we sure were tired.

Ben's mom had to work on Monday and I heard her tell Ben's dad to take me along if they went out anywhere. Well guess what? They went out for breakfast and they left me in the box!! They had pancakes, and I stayed home with the dog!

Today we took Ben's dog, Maggie, to the groomer.

After dropping her off we went to look at some furniture but when we got there Ben was asleep. We cuddled for a little bit before getting out of the car.


We looked at lots furniture...





They have fishies there!

After looking at furniture we picked up some lunch for Ben's daddy and brought it to his work. Mmmmm

Then we went back and picked Maggie up from the groomer.

When Ben's dad got home from work we went to a Mediterranean market to pick up a few things. His dad likes falafel. I'd never heard of it before.


We bought falafel, stuffed grape leaves, Greek coffee, Kasseri cheese, and pita bread. Yummy!!

It looks like I'll be leaving Massachusetts tomorrow. I'm having fun here with Ben, but I have more families to visit.

Tonight Ben took a bath.



I just watched.

After bathtime we played for a little while.




Then it was time for my bath. (Don't worry, I found my way into a pillowcase before my bath got started.)

Now I'm getting ready to ship out in the morning.

I was so ready to get out of this box!

Finally!! Fresh air!

Hey!! Kid!! Leave my suitcase alone!

That's more like it. I came here to play!

I made a new friend

I was SOOOO tired from my trip, so I was happy to find out it was bedtime. It was off to bed for both of us!!

The next morning, I was ready to play again, but patiently waited for Carson to finish his bottle.

Then he was ready to play!! I couldn't believe how many toys he has!

Then Carson needed a nap, so while I waited for him to wake up, I listened to the other animals in the house tell stories!

In the afternoon, we headed out.

We did a little shopping.

The next morning, Carson and Daddy stayed home while Carson Mommy took me with her to work and school.
Buckle up!

Here I am outside the Air Force Base. Carson's Mom took this picture from her car window, so cut her some slack on the quality.

I watched her work for a little while ... it was boring.

Then we went to school! I learned about science!!

Then it was back home to play with Carson one more time before heading off to meet a new friend. I'm going to miss that crazy kid!

Oliver in Canada

Here are some pictures from our recent visit with Oliver! He arrived at the end of May and Mommy waited til the next morning to open the box as Alicia was sleeping...




We drove Mommy to work

After a hard day of playing with Daddy we slept really well!

On the weekend Mommy and Daddy took us to Niagara Falls, Canada. We had to start at Mommy's favourite store.

We posed for a picture with the "Mountie"

Saw some really pretty flowers in the Secret Garden

And had a great view of the American Falls. The Canadian Falls were shrouded by thick mist unfortunately and we didn't want to get wet!

We went for lunch at the Rainforest Cafe...it was great!

On Monday Mommy had a day off so she came to swimming lessons and took some pictures. Boy does Alicia ever like to swim!

I had lots of fun and today I'm going to have my bath and get ready to go visit my next family!

Hope you enjoyed them!

Oliver's Adventures In Leeds
The day he got here

He was really happy to get out of that box after more than 2 months to meet Nate!!!

And then it was nap time.

After his nap, Oliver and Nate played a bit in the ball pool

Okay, so this morning we went into Leeds

Here's Nate and Oliver waiting for the train at our station (I wish the weather could make up its mind, is it going to be cold or warm, warm or cold, who knows! ARG!)

This is them on the train

Oliver got to see some of the city center

Then we went to McDonalds for lunch and Nate shared his Happy Meal with Oliver

Here we are back on the train waiting to leave the station in Leeds

And Nate wanted to read Oliver his new Waybuloo book

On Friday we went to the park to meet Nate's friend, Aidan.

Nate and Oliver took a spin on the merry-go-round

After that Nate pushed Oliver on the swing

In the end, they decided that swinging together was the most fun....

On Saturday we went to the Penistone Show (that's a real place, really, its where DH grew up....) It was a lovely warm day for a change!
This is Oliver sunning himself on the dash while we waited in traffic

Oliver insisted that he get his picture taken with the prize winning onions and leeks!

Nate got a balloon and he let Oliver hold it.

And on the way home they decided to take a nap in the car. It was a busy day!

Oliver is on his way to Kristi and Leia now. I knitted him a new scarf since its getting cold here already (with the weird exception of Saturday where we had shorts on!) We had a lovely visit and glad we took part.
