I know every parent expects 911 to be called at some point I just never thought that would happen at Costco. Camden is certainly already keeping us on our toes.
Saturday was so warm and beautiful we decided it was a perfect day to go swimming. It was our first time in a pool this year. We were a little unsure of how Camden would like cold water (well colder than his bath). We had no expectations for the day. We would leave whenever he had enough. We ended up staying in the water for about two hours. Camden loved swimming. We brought along his floaty that he could sit in. He seemed so relaxed in it just sitting back and kicking his feet around. He even tried jumping off of the side of the pool (or falling off of the side of the pool) into his Nana's arms. He really enjoyed the water.
We hope to have the rest of the pictures posted on our website soon!

Last night we took a little family outing to Snoqualmie Falls that is located two miles from our home. Steven likes to tell people it's in our back yard. We try to go there often because it is so beautiful and close. With all of the recent "warmer" weather we have been having, tons of snow has started to melt in the mountains. It has made Snoqualmie Falls bursting with water. It is a pretty incredible sight to see. It has the most water flowing through it that I have ever seen, so you must take the opportunity to come and see it for yourself. We took a video and more pictures that we will post on our website soon.
On our way home, we were driving on the parkway close to our house when I noticed a bear walking up the hillside. I quickly pulled over and Steven and my mom began taking pictures. It walked up the hill next to us and then turned around and stared at us before walking off into the woods. It was a young looking black bear. We enjoyed the bear as long as we could before calling 911 to report it. I don't think Steven will be jogging with Camden on the trails anytime soon!
The bear blends in so well with the background.
This last picture you can really only see the bear's head.

OK, so it's been a while since my last post. It has been a crazy past couple of weeks for our family. First Steven went to Moscow, and while he was gone I of course had a week long migraine. He got back into town just in time for all of us to take a quick trip down to California. It seems as though our busy summer has already started.
Camden is doing much better with food. Since we found out that his test results were normal we all got back to normal. That really means I calmed down about the "food issue" and mealtime became a much more pleasant experience. Camden isn't so picky and I am finding what he likes and making it for him over and over again. I even switched him to a different booster seat so he could sit at the table (thinking that would motivate him to eat more). All it did was teach him he could stand and eat and squish his face into our glass table.
He seems to be our little ham always trying to get us to laugh at what he's doing (much like his mommy did when she was a little girl).
Below are some pictures I took of him "hamming" it up at the table before I switched him back to the booster where he can't stand up.
