Weekend in Maine

We spent a long weekend in Maine visiting Mammie and Grandpa. Mammie grew a few pumpkins this year and let Cameron pick out the one he wanted. (The BIG one.) Here they are at the pumpkin patch:

Cameron thought this was pretty fun.

We took Cameron to a local Apple Orchard.
He LOVED taste-testing all the apples he could reach...
Thankfully, he's still pretty short.
Grandpa was all business.
Turns out he can pick a mean apple...
Dad getting the "good ones" up high:
Mammie and Lexi
Lexi thought apples were pretty neat...
if only she had teeth!

While we were up there Cameron also took a ride
on Mammie's riding lawn mower...
(Although honestly, I'm not sure who was having more fun, Cameron or Dad.)

We had a great time. Cameron's already talking about our next trip.
Thanks for everything!

Helping with Laundry

When I asked Cameron to help me with laundry, this is not exactly what I had in mind...

I gave the kids a few "rides" in the laundry basket before bed.
They had a blast!

You can almost hear them laughing!

...And Cameron did eventually help me
put the towels away... :)

Trip to RI

So we were feeling a little adventurous and headed down to Rhode Island to spend some time with the grandparents and Aunt Jessica over the long weekend. Grandma and Grandpa Blouin have their sailboat docked in Jamestown, a really cute little coastal town. This is a picture of Cameron and Dad riding the shuttle out to the sailboat:

Cameron "driving" the boat:

Cameron spending some quality time with Aunt Jessica. This actually an attempt to tire CAMERON out:
Again and again and again...
(Guess who got tired first after all the spinning?)
I think Aunt Jessica slept well though -
What a good sport!

Cameron and Aunt Jessica taking in the sunset:
(He just ADORES her!)

Back at home on land, Lexi is "walking" all over the place...
And LOVING every minute!

Ahhh - break time!

Cameron keeping her company.
What a good big brother!

On the Move...

I have been remiss in keeping you all up to date on Lexi's milestones. She has been crawling for about a month now, but only in the last week or so she has really perfected the skill. She now zooms around everywhere rather quickly. (About the only one who really keeps up with her is Cameron.) Here are a couple of pictures of her chasing us around as we were trying to get the kiddos into bed last night:

In this one she's peeking around the corner of the couch....

making sure the coast is clear before she makes her move!

Cameron wanted his picture taken too.
Here he is in his jammies:

This is what he's been up to most if the summer. The kid LIVES in/on the water. Jon has had him at the beach almost every day. Cameron is our little fish. He could literally swim all day. This is a picture of the guys out in the canoe before they went swimming. Cameron had a great time with Grandpa when he was here!
