first day of school, first day of school!

name that movie :)
Camp started preschool this week and he was pretty excited about it!
First day of school breakfast...don't you just love his smile? :) This is usually the smile I get when I say "cheese!".

Such a big boy!

He sure loves preschool...his buddy, Bo, is in his class this year.
 Camp thinks Bo is pretty cool!

Camp has probably been most excited about his "piggy bank", Rudy, or as he pronounces it, Wudy. :) When he brings snack, he will be able to feed his piggy bank.

Thank goodness we'll bring snack twice in September because of his birthday!! :)

After school, we headed to Hopkins for a turkey sandwich...

and then to tasty pastry for a dinosaur cookie...

every time we drive by tasty pastry, camp will say "guess what? do you want to get a dinosaur cookie?" he loves looking at all of the yummy goodies and one of his favorite things in the bakery is a sample monster cake.

after we get a treat from tasty pastry, he always wants to sit down outside to eat it...this day was no different!

The first week of preschool was a huge success. I'm so excited for the new school year and a new season. Fall...you can't get here soon enough!! :)


lake perfection

Exactly two weeks ago, we were headed north to Lake Rabun in Lakemont, Georgia...one of my new favorite places.
Our house was located right on the lake, but in a little cove so we could swim and float without worrying about boats driving by.

If we weren't swimming, we were in the boat picking out our favorite lake houses...

or tubing...this is Bop Bop!

Camp thought it was pretty fun to watch Bop Bop on the tube!

Every house had a boat house that was just as beautiful as the main house...

loved this one...

this house is for sale...it was my absolute fave of every house on the lake. I did a little math and if we had 18 people go in with us, it would be $1000 a month...I think we could swing that! :)

This boat house had a grasshopper weather vane...I loved it!

This boy had the BEST time. He loved going on boat rides and swimming. He keeps asking to swim in the lake and go on boat rides...I think this was Camp's favorite vacation of all!

He had a very relaxing time...

view of the lake from the back porch...

look at that cool dude...can't you just tell he was having a blast??

enjoying a "coca cowa"

Dave and Camp swimming out in front of the house.

There were steps off the boat house dock that walked right down to the water...Camp could get in and out of the water so easily. See how clear the water was? It was just gorgeous...and the temperature was perfect. It wasn't too cold that it took your breath away, but it was soooo very refreshing. The weather was beyond perfect as well...I even had chill bumps some evenings! Chill bumps in the middle of August?? I'll take it!

It was a fantastic vacation and I'm hoping we can go back every year!! You might have noticed Adam wasn't in any pictures and that's because he didn't go! :( Boo hoo...he couldn't get away from work, but was pretty miserable without us...and after I showed him all of the pictures! We've all told him that he's definitely going next year, even if we have to strap him to the luggage rack! I know he would have loved it too!!

Thank you, Yaya & Bop Bop for such a fabulous end of summer vacation!!!


on the river

We just got back from a wonderful vacation on Lake Rabun...a little piece of Heaven! I'm going to share those pictures soon, but here are a few pictures from our trip to the river, the weekend before we left for the lake!
We woke up Saturday morning to a yard full of turkeys...

We spent Saturday on the river and this little buddy had a blast!

Dancing in the water! :)

Bentley & Camp

Lake pictures to come soon!!! :)


well, hello august

We had supper club on Sunday...the last one with the Micas as Florida residents... :(
we missed you, meadows family!!

It was so much fun...as usual!

The kids table...

the kiddies had lots of fun too...

Camp was in the living room the other day and was very quiet. Usually that's a tell tale sign of disaster and this time was no different. At least he knows where the concealor, eyeliner, mascara, and eyeshadow goes! :)

I think the makeup brings out his eyes!

When we have nothing planned for the day, I'll usually ask Camp what he wants to do. More times than not, he'll respond with "I wanna go to Disney World to see Meeka". Today he said he wanted to go to the airport, so to the airport we went!

We arrived around noon and I saw that a plane would be arriving from ATL around 12:30...

while waited Camp pretended he was an airplane...

Camp was hoping that we'd be able to ride on the airplane, but I told him it really didn't work like that. Oh how I wish I still had my Delta non rev card in my wallet...we could fly to Atlanta, have lunch and fly home! :)

Camp was so excited to see the airplane. It's only natural that he has an attraction to airplanes...Bebe was a flight attendant for Delta for 30 years, my Aunt Vicki is still a flight attendent for Delta, my cousin Trey is a pilot for ASA, and Grandpa had his pilot's license! With Papa & Trip in the maritime industry, we have all sorts of tranpsortation covered in our family!
After saying goodbye to the airplane, Camp spotted the game room. I sat there and watched him "play" the games for probably 30 minutes. He had a blast going from game to game...I wonder when he won't be content playing these games without money? :)

I wish all public restrooms were like the restrooms at the airport...these little built in stools for kids are just brilliant.
