|LifeHacker Challenge: Honorable Mention Award!|
Chris has never been one to brag about himself, so Cameron decided his blog was the best place to do it!
Cam's Dad entered the "CamMobile" invention into a contest (unbeknownst to his son and wife) online to create something out of PVC. Since he had already designed and built the famous mobile, it was easy to include it as an entry.
Although he didn't win, he did make the Honorable Mention category and it was fun to read the comments of others indicating he definitely should've won top honors! Read the story here...

After a quick preview of Atari, the family headed over to see cousins Coco and Libby. The girls cooked a most delicious birthday dinner for Chris serving up grilled steak, chicken and a fabulous pasta dish as well as salad. Coco made a "Dutchman" (combo of German/Dutch Chocolate) cake with German chocolate cake mix and whipped chocolate frosting with melted peanut butter chips on top- yummy! She even had Cam's favorite ice cream dessert- mini drumsticks!

The kayak is perfect for Lake Michigan and super comfortable since it's inflated.
Cam's grandparents took a turn as well and with the calm water, albeit a bit chilly, it was the perfect chance to get out on the water and enjoy the ride.
The new water craft was in use the whole day, with Cameron taking many rides. He helped Jane paddle quite a bit, and it was quite relaxing just to float along in the Lake Michigan water.

A big Happy Birthday to one who does so much for us all- we love you Chris/Dad!!
