Our Trip to Maine

Although the purpose of our trip was to say goodbye to a dear friend of ours, Donnie Small, and to visit with his family a little bit, Cameron still managed to sneak in a few moments of fun. He "convinced" Mammie and Uncle Aaron to give him rides on the new lawn mower... then refused to let them help him steer. Uncle Aaron played ball with him and gave Cameron "airplane" rides for hours. What a trooper! Cameron wouldn't let him go when it was time to leave. He sure loves his Uncle Aaron. He had fun with his Aunt Amanda too - running through the fields and picking flowers. She even rescued him from my parent's garden... let's just say dirt looks better than it tastes! :) We will miss Donnie a lot and we are grateful for the time that we had with him. He was an amazing man and life won't be quite the same without him. We look forward to seeing him again someday. Our prayers are with his family.

A Family Hike

We decided to go for a family hike up Pitcher Mountain this past weekend. It was a beautiful day and with the breeze at the top, there weren't even that many bugs! Cameron got right into it - it looks like we've got a little rock-climber on our hands!

Now That's a Tonka!

Grammie and Grandpa Blouin bought a dump truck for all their grandchildren to share at their house in Vermont. It's at our house right now for safe-keeping and Cameron just loves it! He'll be able to show them how to use it when they come to pick it up, but I think he'll be sad to see it go. :)

Playing Outside

I thought I would post a couple more fun pictures of our relaxing family day at home. They happen too rarely! I bet you can't figure out which picture was taken before luch and which was taken just after! :) FYI: We did wash his face before he went down for his nap!

Adventures with Dad

Yesterday we went for a family hike around Hidden Lake (which is really just a large pond) a short distance from our house. We discovered a large turtle hanging out by the drainage pipe and Jon decided to show Cameron the correct way to catch a large turtle. Watching him wrestle with it was actually a little scary... it's hard to tell in the pictures but that turtle had very long sharp claws and kept snapping at him. Cameron was completely mesmerized and didn't know quite what to think about the whole situation. I don't think we're going to let Cameron go swimming in there any time soon!

Mammie's Visit

We apologize for the delay in posting... things have been a little hectic this past week. The week before last, Mammie was up visiting for a week and spoiled Cameron rotten! She took him for wagon rides to the lake and bought him a bubble-blowing lawn-mower. He absolutely LOVES it! He "mows" everything, including the driveway and the road. Cameron was not the only one who got spoiled during her visit - she made all our favorite foods and gave Jon the time he needed to get A's on both of his finals! Thanks a ton!
