Girls Trip to Phoenix

Over the weekend Thing 4 and I headed off to Phoenix, Arizona for the weekend. We went for the celebration of life for my grandfather who recently died.

This was our first time to Arizona and Thing 4’s first plane trip. I would just like to say this girl did amazing. The only time she cried was after we landed in Phoenix and we were taxing to the gate. Crazy girl. She also received numerous comments about her crazy hair.

When we arrived Friday, my parents and aunt picked us up and after checking in to our hotel we headed off for a short hike to Hole in the Rock. Hiking here is definitely different from hiking in Georgia.

On Saturday after the memorial service and visiting with family, we went to hike Camelback Mountain. It was freaking awesome to be able to see so far.

After our hike we headed to Old Town Scottsdale for a little shopping and dinner.

While the girls were away in warm Arizona, the boys stayed home with Daddy Cameron and waited for the “snow.” Our house really didn’t get any snow, but the boys did get to spend some time together and do boy stuff.

Just another weekend Raising the Cameron Clan!

Edisto 2016

This past week we took our annual trip to Edisto Island, SC.

Warning: Lots of Pictures Ahead

This year it was exciting to share the beach with Thing 4 for the first time.

Edisto Island 2015

Last week we spent another memorable week at Edisto Island. This was definitely the most memorable trip in that halfway through we went to a funeral, but despite the funeral the boys had a great time.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving!  This morning the boys woke up to a special treat outside our hotel window.  Snow!  Of course, we had to go outside and play in the snow, the little there was.  Thing 1 even built a tiny snowman.

Tallulah Gorge & the Polar Express

Today has been a very exciting day for the Cameron family.  After completing a full morning of school we went on a road trip to North Carolina, because Grandaddy and G-G, bought tickets for everyone to ride the Polar Express!  So this evening, we have enjoyed a train ride, seeing Santa Clause and Christmas Lights.

However, on our drive this way we made a very impromptu stop at Tallulah Gorge State Park. The boys thought this was awesome and asked when we could come back again and hike more of it.  I guess we will have another road trip in the spring.

Edisto 2014

We spent the last week on Edisto Island in South Carolina.  We had an awesome time catching waved, playing in the sand, riding bikes and enjoying some quality time with the family.  Warning: Lots of Pictures Ahead.

Where or Where Have We Been

So I noticed that it has been almost 2 months since I have posted anything.  Oops!  To be honest I just haven’t felt like getting on my computer at night and blogging about it, however I think I have had a long enough break so my goal is to get back to it.

Here is a little bit of what has been going on..

The third week in May, Thing 2 participated in his first basketball camp, which he loved.  He had been asking to do a basketball camp for over a year.  It was awesome to see how much he improved and how much he loves to practice basketball since he finished camp.

During the first week of June, the boys and I headed out to a local state park to participate in a homeschool day.  It is no secret that the boys love butterflies and it just so happened that this months homeschool day was about butterflies.  The boys had a great time.

The weekend of June 6-8, Daddy Cameron and I headed to Savannah to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary a week early.

Thursday, June 12 had Daddy Cameron and the boys headed to North Carolina with a stop in South Carolina.  The boys spent one day playing golf with their cousins in South Carolina, before heading to North Carolina for the US Open golf tournament.

After arriving home Sunday evening from their trip to the US Open, we headed out bright and early (4:30am) for Texas.  We had a goal to get to Texas before the US Men’s National Team started their first game in the World Cup.  Thing 1 had a laser treatment on Tuesday morning and then we spent a couple of day visiting in Texas before driving back to Georgia on Thursday.

We have spent a lot of the last two weeks watching World Cup, playing soccer and swimming in the pool.

Catching Up

Things have been super busy around here lately…

At the beginning of August we enjoyed a wonderful trip to South Carolina.  Our vacation started with the celebration of Thing 3’s 3rd birthday.

Since we have been home from the beach we have been working like crazy to prepare our house to be put of the market, thus the reason there have been very few blog post lately.

NASA and More!

Over the weekend the boys and I headed to Houston to spend some time with Daddy Cameron and check out the Space Center.  We spent the entire day exploring the Space Center.  All of my boys loved it!

Sunday morning before we headed home, we spent some time at a neat park with walking trails, a long pier and a playground.  It was the perfect way to end our trip.
