The Circus

The circus came to town and we decided it would be fun to make it a family event to go. I had never been to the circus, and of course neither has Cameron, so it was a first for us. It was just a small circus but still alot of fun. It was really hot today especially inside the tent, so just ignore how hot and sweaty we look in the pictures...

Cameron enjoyed hit first snow cone, he wasnt a huge fan until we got to all the syrup!

Cameron watched certain parts of the show with such intent, he was so interested in what was going on. Of course, once he lost interest, it was hard to keep him contained on our laps.
The first act involved two tigers and a lion. It was crazy to see them so up close. We didnt get a good picture of the lion but here is a picture of the tigers. Cameron really liked this part.
This is the trapeze artist, she was pretty good. I would be terrified... At the end she swung on the back of her neck!
Its hard to tell in this picture, but this girl was balancing on a round tube with 4 stools stacked on top of eachother, amazing!
This was a huge snake! If you wanted they would let you take a picture with it. I said no no because that thing could swallow my baby! Not to add I hate snakes...
We got a picture with the clown. She was pretty funny:)
This guy is sitting on a chair on the high rope. He almost fell one time, good thing he didnt since there wasnt anything below to catch him.
After the circus we went out to dinner and Cameron had a ton of fun with the straw. He was cracking up playing with it. He waved at everyone that walked by, like always. And shook a few peoples hands, silly kid. He is very friendly!

Our Garden is Growing!

This is our first garden ever! I have always wanted to do a garden, but I definatly dont have a green thumb and we have never really had the money to get one started. So this year, I made sure it happened. Its not the fanciest, but it works! So we bought some starters (tomatos, strawberries, a few herbs, etc.) and we planted some seeds. I am excited to have my own fresh grown vegitables this summer.

Here is a picture of my beans, corn and peas popping up out of the ground. I was so excited when I saw the first one growing, I was afraid nothing would grow. But we are on our way to yummy veggies!

I have such a funny kid...

Cameron found a pair of my old glasses and now he wants to wear them! We took the lenses out so they wont hurt his eyes or break, so he wanders around the house with them on.

I have had allergies for the last couple weeks so I have been blowing my nose a lot. So the other day I was blowing my nose and Cameron was reaching for the tissues so I gave him one. He automatically put it up to his nose and started blowing! How funny!

The other video is Cameron being weird and silly. He has started putting his food on top of his sippy cup and then eating it off the top, what a funny idea! I never showed him anything like that, it was just an idea of his own.

Memorial Day Weekend

My Aunt Jenny came to visit us for Memorial Day Weekend, she got in on Thursday night and left Tuesday morning. It was really fun seeing her and getting to spend time with her. Cameron had fun playing with her too! Silly enough, I didnt actually get any pictures of Cameron and Jenny together :( Jenny and I went to the craft store while she was here and got some paper to play around on my cricut machine. We cut out a bunch of cute things for a scrapbook page of her trip here. While she was here we all went to see Star Trek, Im going to give it a 3 out of 5... it was good, but not amazing. We went to dinner at Mama Stortinis (yum!) and while we were there I gave Cameron a lemon from a drink and he loved it! It was so funny, he would suck on it a minute and then he would squint his eyes shut and shiver all over because it was so sour.
The whole weekend my mom was feeling kind of sick. We were planning a BBQ on Monday but she started feeling so sick she went to the ER and ended up having appendicitis! So she had surgery Monday night to remove her appendix. It ended up just being Jenny, Christopher, Bret, Cameron and me for the BBQ. It was still fun though! Too bad my mom and dad couldnt be there.

My mom bought Cameron a little watering can to help me water my garden. He always wants to help, he tries to pick up the hose but he cant get any water to come out. So I gave him the watering can, but all he wated to do with it was put his hand inside it and splash around the water, funny kid. Here are some pictures from this weekend.
Cameron came down with a sinus infection, he had a fever of between 102 and 103 degrees all weekend. Every morning he would wake up with "green stuff" smothered all over his nose and face, poor boy. I took this picture because he looked so pitiful and this wasnt even the worst, this was after his nose had been wiped off... He is still a little sick, but getting better.

A Lil Decorating...

Every now and then I get in a funk and I need to change something in my house or make something new to decorate with. So last week I got into a decorating mood and decided I wanted to cut some vinyl. I also have been trying to get all my pictures matted because I think it makes them look more complete. So I bought a few new frames, and matted a few old ones. Then I cut vinyl to decorate this frame with. I love it. Then I decided to replace some vinyl on my wall that I had to take down when we painted. But I didnt want to do the same thing I had before, so this is what I came up with. I know these arent the best pictures, but you can see the general idea. I am really starting to like my home now, I have been doing a lot of little things, garage sale hopping, crafts, etc. that are really making me love the way my home looks.

Building a Garden

We are doing a vegitable garden for the first time ever this summer. So we had to build the garden so we could plant. Bret got the dirt and built the box, what a great husband. And then Cameron and I watched him unload the dirt. Then the other night I planted some starts and seeds. I cant wait to see some progress! Cameron had a blast playing in the dirt, now whenever we go into the bakyard I cant keep him away from it!

Recent Pictures

Since I havent been able to upload my pictures for a while I have a few built up. Here are some cute ones.
Ok I swear Cameron does wear pants... Sometimes it just not worth the fight after a diaper change. But we got him this phone and he figured out how to "answer the phone." We make a ring ring noise and he picks it up and puts it to his ear. Its really cute to watch.
He loves our broom, but I think its kinda gross to let him play with it so when I was at Target I saw this little broom and dust pan in the $1 section so I had to get it for him. He obviously knows what to do with them!
The other day I was cooking dinner and Cameron kept pulling and untieing my apron. So I took it off and put it on him. It was so funny to watch him run around in it! Then he got out a spatula like I was using, funny kid!
I love these PJs!
Cameron loves playing in our closet. He loves to pull on the sleeves of long shirts, or ties for dresses. So the other day Bret took down one of his shirts and put it on him. He was funny walking around our room in it.
