This post is all Odin, as he was cooperative with the camera this weekend.  Enjoy!

He is starting to figure out how things work.  For example, he pulls the green chair and red stool with him to help him climb.  Step 1 - place the chair and stool:

Step 2 - climb onto green chair:

Step 3 - climb onto stool:

Step 4 - kneel:

Sorry for the lack of posts.  The boys are still cute!

Wrestling is huge at our house these days:

Date night!

Our little superhero had kindergarten round-up today.  Wait.  What?  Yes, he is that old already!

Puzzles and Ely

Finn is still a puzzle fiend, and here is his latest triumph. With the help of his parents on the 500-piecers, Finn completed all of these Disney-themed jigsaws. The 100-piecers are no match for him, and he does surprisingly well on the 350's by himself.

A grand accomplishment: all the "little piece" puzzles done!

So proud, he permitted a photo.

Last weekend, we went to Ely for a winter getaway to a cabin on Garden Lake. Despite ridiculously cold temperatures (-30 on Saturday morning), we still managed to play outdoors and explore the lake and woods. Other highlights included visiting the International Wolf Center and the North American Bear Center.
