Last Days of Summer - Week of Aug. 29th

It seems impossible that we welcomed in September this week. An appropriate quote to sum up our last few months ..."Summer should get a speeding ticket!"

An end of August task was handled by Cameron and his dad this week. It was time for the drainage and re-fill of the hot tub. Cam was an eager helper, helping Chris hold the hose.
Other chores included getting the backyard ready for the annual neighborhood picnic, which Cam and his parents hosted this year.

On Saturday, it was off to buddy Will's 3rd birthday party where Cameron met some new friends. Auntie Jo and Will made delicious cupcakes, complete with sprinkles. Cam went for a ride in Will's car in the playroom and he made sure to look both ways before crossing.

After celebrating with Will, it was off to see Grandma and Grandpa at the lake. Chris, Jane and cousin Coco decided to take Cam and Coco's puppies on an extra long walk. They ventured all the way to Meinert Park (4 miles round trip) and Cameron thought the puppies provided the best entertainment!
Although one of the pups was a little tuckered out and wanted to hop on the Cam Mobile for a free ride.
The family watched some kiteboarding, played at the park, and had a most relaxing weekend...goodbye will be missed!
From Sarah Jewett: "This was one of those perfect days in late summer where the spirit of autumn takes a first stealing flight, like a spy, through the ripening country-side, and, with feigned sympathy for those who droop with August heat, puts her cool cloak of bracing air about leaf and flower and human shoulders."
