Beginning of Break - Week of Mar. 28th

In the Spring, I have counted 136 different kinds of weather inside of 24 hours. ~Mark Twain 

In a short education week with two days off of school to commence spring break, Cam sure can pack in a lot!

We wished Michelle a fun farewell as she readied herself for a break to warmer weather in Florida.  Cam worked with the grad students at Grand Valley on Wednesday eve, testing out a cool contraption and stretching on the exercise ball.

Amanda enjoyed a full day with Cam on Thursday and they mixed up some tasty puppy chow, also known as muddy buddies.  Here's the recipe they used:
9 cups Chex cereal (any kind) 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips or 6 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips, melted 1⁄2 cup smooth peanut butter, melted 1⁄4 cup butter, melted 1 -2 teaspoon vanilla 1 1⁄2 cups powdered sugar.  Melt ingredients together, mix in cereal and toss in powdered sugar- yummy!

Because it made soooo much, Amanda took a bag to her night class at Cornerstone University and the rest was quickly disappearing at home.  Much to Cam's surprise, Amanda arrived Friday morning with a special 'thank you' card from her university class!  The professor even gave Cam a cool frisbee with the Cornerstone logo!

Oma arrived Friday afternoon ready to dive into another set of tasks with her grandson.  They worked on some sewing and mending before diving into a rousing game of a family favorite, Yahtzee.
Before dinner, Cam, his mom and grandma all headed over to the YMCA for a nice swim.  It was Oma's first time checking things out and getting in the pool.  Cam gave a great tour and that warm water sure felt good.  Afterwards, we headed down the road to meet Chris, already waiting for us.  We dined on tasty burgers and fries, followed by a mini tootsie roll,  delivered with our bill.  Cam may have tried to sneak an extra one...

Cam-ology Quotes:

One evening after Cam was in bed and we had some giggles and laughs before saying goodnight, he said,

"You guys are such nice parents, I want to take you out to dinner!"
"Where will we go, Cam?" 
"Bagger Dave's.  Do I have enough money in my bank account?"

Cam smartly noted: "Why is it called a Winter Weather Advisory when it isn't even winter anymore?!"
