I was cleaning the bathroom today while Camden went through all of the drawers. The bathroom ended up sanitized but messy afterward! Anyway Camden found some bathtub paint in one if the drawers and asked me to open it for him. I decided to oblige him by setting him in his high chair and letting him go after it while I fixed lunch. Boy did he have fun for awhile!!! Red soap paint was everywhere but he hadn't yet decided to put it in his hair or face yet. Well it wasn't too long before that happened. He laughed and played and then started feeling some stinging in his eyes which caused him to rub them more and more and more.... And then the crying began! At first I though maybe it doesn't hurt his eyes but after about a minute I knew I had made a mistake by letting him play with it. I rushed him to the bathtub and poured water over his face while he just wailed! We were both exhausted and traumatized after it was over. Camden just closed his eyes and fell asleep in my arms for about 30 minutes, poor baby!!
Note to self: don't let your 15 month old play with soap paint!!!!
Kimberly came to visit this past weekend for 6 days. It was so good to have her here. We managed to have fun even though Cliff was very busy with work most of the time. We joined him for his kids mission event friday night for dinner and helped out all Saturday morning carting kids around. The weekend consisted of lots of playing with Camden, the zoo, the park, and the pool. Thanks Aunt KK for coming to visit. We love you!
We celebrated Father's Day between crazy busy weeks. My boys both looked super handsome that Sunday! I had big plans to get a picture taken on that day. They turned out a little blurry but cute. Love my family and I am so very thankful for Cliff. He is a wonderful daddy to Camden!!
I have been refraining from posting on here because I haven't gotten any of the pictures off of my camera. And let's be serious...blog posts just aren't as fun without pictures, right?! Camden is napping right now so I thought I'd at least catch everyone up.
The Cary's are in busy summer mode right now. We haven't gotten to see near enough of Cliff over the last several weeks, but we are making it. :) Camden and I are finding fun summer things to do together like go to the public pool, make homemade snow cones, and play in the yard. Last week was VBS at our church. I am pretty sure Cliff pulled 15-16 hour days every day last week. It was rediculous! But...God was glorified! We had over 1000 people on the church campus from 9-noon everyday last week. Lots of kids heard the Gospel and were loved on by some great people. I helped with 1st and 2nd grade missions each day. We had 6, 20 minute roations come through our class. Each class had between 25-30 kids! The days actually flew by so fast.
Camden had fun at VBS too. He actually did crafts and music and stuff just like the big kids. At the end of the week we got an adorable booklet of pictures and crafts that he did! This is his second VBS already! He'll be a pro in no time. :)
Camden is loving the swimming pool already! He wants to jump out of my arms and go for it! The $4 floaty was pretty much a waste of money because this kid can't stand just chillin,' he wants to be "swimming."
Camden is an official walker now. It is becoming the favored mode of transportation very quickly. He is also learning to climb. I found him on the fireplace yesterday! He needs to grow a little taller to get on the couch though. Not quite strong enough for that. Our baby is becoming a little boy with a strong will and a mind of his own. I'm in trouble!!
I am definitely missing family alot lately! At least once a day I wish I could swing by mom and dad's or one of my siblings houses and just say hi for a few minutes. I am making the most of the summer though and repeatedly asking God to fill me up. He truly is my source of strength and joy. Aunt KK is coming to town tomorrow. I am so excited to have her here for several days!! I keep dreaming up what fun things we'll do...but I have a 1 year old so I am sure we'll get some of those fun things checked off but probably not all. :)
