Oskar in the U.P. — August 2014

It’s been awhile since I posted any Raising Oskar photos, and this boy is growing up fast! We recently returned home from a fun visit to the U.P. in Michigan to see my parents. My sister Chris and her daughter Lucy, 10, were visiting at the same time and Oskar had a great time with […]

It’s been a long winter

  It’s been quite awhile since I made an effort to photograph Oskar with my professional camera and not just my iPhone. Maybe it’s the fact that we’ve been trapped indoors all winter. So with our first real day at the park, it seemed like a good idea to break out the camera. We were […]

Oskar in the U.P.

Because there are just never enough photographs taken of Oskar, I thought I’d share some from our recent trip to the U.P. for the holidays. Although the weather was too cold to really enjoy the outdoors, we managed to get a round a bit in the short time we were visiting. Oskar got to hang […]

Oskar in Instagram

I got my first iPhone about two months ago and admit I’ve been having fun playing around with the phone’s camera and Instagram. I’m fairly impressed with the photos you can take with a phone.

The Waning Playground Days

A few photos to share of Oskar during a recent playground outing. As temperatures continue to dip, I don’t think we’ll be spending much time at the playground for awhile. This makes us both rather sad. Before heading to the playground, Oskar and I stopped by a church to check out the lighting the day […]

There were plenty of toy trains for him to play with, along with some cool exhibits, a train themed story time and snack time. The only bad part of the morning was trying […]

Oskar’s Third Birthday Party

This is my chance to show off my cake making abilities. I love baking, and while I don’t have a ton of cake decorating skills or experience, I find it fun to do something challenging once a year for Oskar’s birthday. His dragon cake was actually pretty easy. I found the idea on the internet […]

Pool Party

Today was Oskar’s third birthday. We decided to host a little party at a park near our home. We tried to keep it simple, just inviting close friends and family. Following pizza, cake and present opening, the kids had a good time cooling off in the pool. I’m glad I ditched my cell phone camera […]

Cousins

Oskar had a chance to play with his older cousins when we visited grandma and grandpa in the U.P. last month. It was fun watching the kids interact. I’m glad he gets this chance at least once a year and wish we could all get together more often. His cousins Robby and McLain just turned […]
