We have discovered that fireworks are not a requirement for a mega fun 4th of July week!
However, it does help to have the following ingredients to make the week fantastic...
A few cousins sprinkled with some special friends, topped off with family and all held together in a big bowl of water, Lake Michigan.
Cameron's cousins, Harper and Maya, are hanging out at their cottage for the rest of summer. While Cam and Maya relaxed on the hammock, Harper provided live entertainment, pretending to be a ghost and showing off his bat swinging skills.
'Auntie' Amanda and 'Uncle' Mark spent a few perfect weather days at the cottage as well. They brought their sweet dog, Reese, and she took a liking to hanging out with Cam and being in the water. Lake Michigan was so warm and refreshing that everyone decided to lounge on their beach chairs in the water! Since CamMobile is water-tested, Chris took Cam for a cruise in the calm lake. Another form of water travel took on the form of a piggyback ride.
The week did consist of a little work as well...Cam attended his final summer "work day" with the graduate PT students at GVSU. Wish everyone's daily grind could be this enjoyable!!! Hope all of you had a great 4th!
