Cam turns 3!!!!

Well, got some pictures to work! Yeah!

Cam turned 3 on April 14. We celebrated
his birthday with a party on April 13. All
of our family could be there, it was so fun.
Here's some pictures from the day.

We gave Cam a new bike - he loves it!
We are excited for warm weather now so
he can get out and ride it.

Aunt Juli gave Cam some Monster trucks,
and he LOVES them. Here's Lucas and
Cam playing with them. They had so much fun!

This isn't really a birthday picture, but I had
to post it. Here's Cam in big boy underwear!
He's potty-trained! We're going on about 3
weeks now. It's great only buying diapers for
one now!!

Here's Cam and Mommy opening
his presents. He loved this one from
Uncle Drew. Of course it shoots!

Here is Cam's cake. This just fits him
to a T! He is such a hunter boy and loves
guns and shooting animals. His face when
he saw his cake was priceless.

Before he blew out his candles, I asked him
how old he was and he shouted "3" and held
up 3 fingers! Unfortunately it was right
in front of his face :}

Here he is blowing out his candles.
He had a super fun day. We thank God
for the gift of Cameron. It's hard to
believe he's 3 already. He is a very
special little guy.

Computer Issues.... again!

Well, I haven't been able to post pictures again for quite some time. I am so frustrated! We can't figure out why it works sometimes, and other times not??? We have tried so many things, and just can't figure it out. We have been having other internet problems too, so we are having a guy come over to check it out. I hope he can get to the bottom of it. Otherwise we are all doing well. Have a little bug right now here, sinus and coughing, but otherwise healthy! We are really loving the warm temperatures! Spring is finally here. We hope this finds all of our family and friends well.

Fun on Spring Break!

For spring break this year, we went
to Grayling and Gaylord with our
very dear friends Holly and Casey, and
their girls Adri and Ally. We had so
much fun. We went to Gaylord first,
because the the guys had to do some
shopping at Jay's! After they bought
the store out :}, we headed to see the
elk and deer pen. The kids thought this
was cool, especially Cam. They even
got to touch some of them.

Here's Cam and Casey petting
a deer. A sign says do not feed the deer,
but you could tell that they were fed
because they were very tame and
came right up looking for food.

Cam thought this was so cool!
He's in his glory here.

Olivia was a little more timid,
but eventually stuck her hand out
to pet one.

Here's Eric, Adri and Cam again.
This deer's lookin for some food!

They are lovin this!
After the elk and deer, we headed
to Grayling to stay overnight in
a hotel. What fun! They had
lots of stuff for kids to do, but most
of the time they were in the pool
and hot tub!

Here's our 2 little fish. Olivia
and Cam just love the water!
They both do really well.

Emmitt even liked it. The kiddy
pool they had was pretty cold,
so we hung out in the hot tub
quite a bit!

Isn't this picture so precious! These
girls get along so well. I know they
will be kindred friends forever, just
like their mom and I am! We are
so blessed to have such wonderful
friends!

They are hanging out in the sauna here,
and Olivia and Ally posed for a picture
on the playset. Great memories!
