place to go...anywhere he can play with kids (of any age) at the park I swear Arlin thinks he's like 12 or something, not afraid to approach much older kids and play along with whatever their doing, funny most of the time they let him tag along

store...Target cause he knows they sell Legos.

clothes to wear...his comfy pants, translation: his handmade jammie pants (by grandma shelly)

number... 3 1/2 cause that's how old he is! we talk about when his birthday is almost everyday it seems (oh the anticipation!)

song...he'll jam out to anything I play in the car and rock out in his car seat (it's amazing he doesn't give himself whiplash!)

This morning I'm sewing curtains for Arlin's monster BIG window in his room...he's very excited that the fabric has robots on it.

So cute, with a big kiss he says........."Thanks Mama! that makes me happy. Robots and trains are RAD!!!"

Happy Friday.
