Chocolate Marique (What? You aren't familiar with Marique? Ahhh, it is a "yummy kind of soil.")
Whipped Cream Sausage
It reminds me of Christmas when Cameron offered me pretend scones including Sour Cream Scones and . . . Matzo Scones. Mmmmmm.

He also chose a sound for Toby to make. It was very odd -- the employee repeatedly suggested that he choose the Shrek voice saying, "I'm an ogre!" Ummm, no, actually, he's a turtle . . . Cameron chose the "giggle" sound, which I thought was a good choice at the time. After hearing Toby make a maniacal cackling sound about a hundred times now, though, I'm thinking the employee make have been on to something with the Shrek suggestion though.

We also met up with David for lunch at Panera, Cameron's favorite lunch spot. Cameron has in the past suggested that we should have twins, "a brother and a sister named Joshua and Panera." Hmmmm. I don't know, I've never been a fan of those trendy, top ten names. Wouldn't want the poor girl to be "Panera T." in every class. I'm thinking more along the lines of Asiago-Parmesan.

Finally, Cameron chooses his "treasure" -- a mini basketball. The whole walk home he asked over and over, "Can I keep it? Really? Do we have to take it back?"
Hopefully we will have many other fun hunts this summer in Ohio, Michigan and Wisconsin!

We went to the zoo today. (And, yes, he wore his leg warmers. Just not worth the fight.) He spent half the time at the zoo holding his nose and loudly saying, "Mommy, what do I smell?" Here, he asks what smells at the zebra exhibit.

Cameron is in a superhero phase and is obsessed with anything with muscles, a cape or big boots (preferably all three!) This despite a complete lack of exposure to superheroes at home! The good part is that he is willing to eat his veggies as I have told him that veggies help you get muscles. He also frequently demonstrates "exercises" to me, which include some classics but many more eclectic moves.
As I'm not a fan of the "bad guys" themes of Spiderman and Batman, I just ordered a "Rescue Heroes" DVD that involves superheroes that rescue people from natural disasters. (Thanks, Christine!) I did finally break down, though, and bought Cameron some Batman PJs and a selection of superhero t-shirts which he insists on wearing everyday. Last night I put him to bed in one set of PJs. When I checked on him later, they were on the floor and he was asleep in his bed with his Batman PJs on!

Note Cameron's wristwatch in the photo above. He picked a toy watch as his prize at the dentist recently and was then deeply disappointed to realize it didn't actually tell time. He showed such an interest in having a watch that we got him this kid's "learn to tell time" watch. It is dinosaur themed and, best of all, has an indiglo night light which thrills Cameron to no end. This morning he informed me that the time was "four eight" -- better known as 8:20!

This photo makes me laugh. Chloe is telling me, "Cameron got a really little, Jack got a little and I got a TON!" Kids aren't known for being gracious winners!And here is typical lunch time for Jack and Chloe -- Jack eating, Chloe talking his ear off!
And, while they aren't "going steady," Cameron and Chloe have had an on-again-off-again romance going for a good two years now. Sadly, I think Cameron is more interested in Chloe than she in him! Although Cameron did tell me the other day, "Mommy, I'm Olivia's boyfriend. Well, sometimes." Watch out, Chloe, you've got some competition!

Well, after checking out my friend Christine's blog szumkos.blogspot.com I realized what a great way this could be to keep friends and family updated on our (and especially Cameron's!) doings!
My mom has also been after me to start a blog every since she read "Julie and Julia." She is certain that if I blog, it will inevitably lead to a book deal . . . she usually gives good advice so I guess I should listen!
Here are some recent photos of Cameron enjoying the new swingset built by David.
