A Great Day for the Ortyls!

More details to follow, but for now here are some "behind the scenes" shots. We will have to wait two - three weeks for the final images.

XOXO, One happy Momma, Becky

Getting ready for the walk.

The stroller brigade!

Isla climbing on the rock wall at the park.

Oakes getting dressed to go to the garden.

Minimal amount of "stuff" on his face, and dressed like his Pappa!

Leaving the CICU for the garden!

Dr. Gazit, our attending doctor was with us the entire time

Isla and Ena watching as Oakes came out of the elevator.

Holding Oakes as everyone figured out the best set up.

6 CICU staffers brought us up, stayed with us, then brought us back. Our trip took about an hour, but I think everyone agreed that it was a GREAT hour!

Ena held a diffuser for the photographer for almost the entire time! Thank you Ena!!

Once we got back to the CICU, Isla was feeling the love and passing it out!
