Fun Friendships & Fireman Cam - Week of July 13th

Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see the shadows. It's what the sunflowers do.” ~Helen Keller     

Cam enjoyed a few days in morning summer school and experienced plenty of adventures with Ms. Michelle in the afternoons.  On Friday, they went to Boulder Ridge Wild Animal Park where Cam had to show Ms. Michelle around since it was her first visit there.  They rode on the safari bus and fed lots of animals.

On Friday afternoon, Oma and Opa arrived to spend the night at Cam's house.  Saturday morning included a run to Heidi's Farmstand for Oma, Jane and Cam.  The sunflower was a gift to Cam from one of the ladies who works there.  Upon arrival home, Jane asked if the sunflower should stay in the kitchen.  Cam told his mom, "I would like it in my room, please."  Such a nice sight to wake up to in the morning.

Saturday afternoon offered up some silliness when the family dined on Firehouse Subs.  With every kids meal, an official fireman's hat is provided.  As each family member tried it on, more laughter ensued.

A big thanks to Oma and Opa for hanging out with us in GR.

Most Sunday eves, we gather together with our second family/neighbors.  On this particular evening, we added some additional members to the weekly shared meal.
With a menu of grilled burgers and homemade french fries, I don't know many that could resist an invitation!
More people almost always means more laughter and that's something we can never get enough of.

After a weekend filled with family and close friends, there's no better way to end the day - give a hug, receive a hug, and smile.
