There are many things that Camden does that leave both Steven and myself just baffled. We are sometimes left wondering "Where did this kid come from?". Most of the time we are eager to blame the behavior on each other. However, this latest incident leaves us wondering "Who does this kid belong to?".
We were sitting down to dinner the other night as a family. Steven and I were at the table and Camden was in the middle of us in his booster. He had finished his dinner earlier than we had and he was enjoying some ice cream treats. We are still doing everything we can to fatten him up, and he is eating much better now. Steven and I were enjoying our pizza and spinach salad when Camden kept asking for something on the table. We couldn't figure out what he wanted. We kept offering him things and he would turn them down. As a joke I offered him a piece of spinach thinking he would spit it out or throw it on the ground. Of course the opposite happened. He ate the spinach right up. I gave him several more pieces thinking he would think one was enough. He of course ate them right up. Camden wanted more asking please over and over. Steven still wanting to fatten Camden up finally said "Camden if you finish your ice cream first, then we will give you some more spinach". I couldn't help but laugh. Whoever heard of a father reasoning with his son to eat his ice cream so he could have spinach for dessert. We truly do not know where Camden gets his food cravings. They surely do not come from either of us. We would much rather eat ice cream over spinach.

For those of you who don't know Pop (Steven's dad) he is extremely nervous around any kid that moves. This makes for interesting times whenever we are with him, especially with our thrill seeking boy. On this day we took Camden to a park near a lake. This was his first visit so he had a blast. He loves to go down the slide, and now he is even brave enough to try going down on his back. He is still a little wobbly but he has a ball.
In this picture you can see the pure enjoyment on Camden's face and the pure fear on Pop's face. Everything turned out fine in the end.
No harm done.

This was kind of funny. When Chap and Kathy were here we had fun walking around town being tourists. At one point I noticed that the couple in front of us were wearing the older version of what we happened to be wearing that day. Though you can't see it in the picture, Steven and I are both wearing khaki shorts.
Get a good look at me and Steven in about 40 years.
At least we will still be arm in arm.
Today is actually the 4th of August (Happy Birthday Pop!) so I thought it was about time to catch up on my blogging. We have had such a crazy busy summer, but we wouldn't have it any other way. Part of the business was a visit from Steven's good friend from college Chap and his girlfriend Kathy. They made a quick trip to the Northwest and dropped by our area for a couple of days. We had a lot of fun hanging out with them and catching up. It was also Camden's first time meeting Chap. They have become fast friends. We really enjoyed their visit and hope to see them more often.
