4th of July!
Here are the pics we promised from the 4th. We had a great time with our new friends Holly and David and their son Oliver. Oliver is Cameron's first best friend as you can see in the photos. Holly's mother Patti graciously opened her home and welcomed us in to enjoy the fireworks displays from all over the city from her balcony. During the large fireworks displays, David proposed marriage to Holly and she accepted! How romantic! We then had our own display of fireworks stand fountains and ground bloom flowers in the street. Cameron was mesmerized by the glimmer of colorful, flashing lights.
On a more somber note, Cameron's friend 6th month old Joshua has just been diagnosed with a very large and aggressive brain tumor. The diagnosis comes as a mixed blessing as Joshua has had a very difficult time in his life so far with feeding issues and almost constant crying. His mother Kendall has been a trooper through it all trying to get to the root of Joshua's problems. Now that they know that it is a tumor, they have started treatment immediately and hopefully Joshua already feels some relief. Please keep them both in your thoughts and prayers.
