Artic Blast = Indoor Play - Week of Jan.13th

The sub-zero wind chills in Michigan have created the need for some indoor play.  Cam had himself rolled up in a body pillow and reminded us that the ability to play does not require toys or electronics.

Our sweet neighbors ventured over for Sunday dinner which consisted of a breakfast meal.  This was the first time Cameron had breakfast for dinner- he found this experience most hilarious, and because of his reaction, so did we!

With a week full of play, we are reminded of its importance in some favorite quotes:
·         We don’t stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing. ~George Bernard Shaw
·         It’s better to play than do nothing.  ~Confucious
