    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.

    The zoo's Light's before Christmas:

    The original Tony Packo's (you know the one Klinger was always going on about in MASH)

    And their famous hotdogs

    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



    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!

    Default 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


    more to come!

    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


    Nate and Oliver in the pushchair while we were looking for lunch (don't they look thrilled!)


    Oliver with some camels and sheep


    Looking around


    Nate getting a ride on Daddy's shoulders


    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.
