Camp Pa-Qua-Tuck

Last week Nick did something big kids do.  He went away to sleep away camp!

Mom made Nick a picture schedule, it said he would sleep at camp from Sunday to Friday.   Every day, dad would call to get a report about Nick.  They said he liked the pool and the swings, and he was eating dinner with his new friends and slept well in the bunk.

Here are some pictures from camp.  Nick was happy when we packed up the car and arrived, but then he got quiet and serious when mom and dad left.  Marc was Nick's counselor, he took care of Nick during the week.  When mom and dad came back on Friday, Nick was happy in the car ride home.

Mom and dad said, "we missed you very much and we are so proud of you!"

Celebrate 4th of July!

Nick loves the patriotic holidays.  He decorates the house with flags and flag inspired crafts, and he has a large t-shirt collection too.

Usually we watch the Long Beach fireworks from the boardwalk, but this year we walked to Riverside Blvd., got ice cream from a Good Humor truck, and then put our blanket down and watched the sunset and waited for the fireworks.

There was a full moon and it was a beautiful night.  The town was full of people visiting for the festivities.  Here are some pictures from our 4th of July holiday.

Blue Man Group

Today we went to Cambridge to the Charles Playhouse theater to see Blue Man Group.

Grammy bought Nick a t-shirt and picture book.  The men did not speak but the show was very loud and colorful.  They played drums, and three giant iPhones on the stage, and had light shows and video screens.  We had a great time and Nick got to meet one of the Blue men after the show!



A day with Grammy

On our visit to Massachusetts, Nick got time to visit with Grammy.

Nick has been asking to go to the store Savers on this trip. He wanted to find a player to show VHS tapes.  Mom told Nick they might not have any in the store and they did not.  
We spent some time in Grammy's apartment.  She took lots of pictures of Nick on this visit.

Nick is too big to lie down on the couch, Grammy kept asking him to move his big feet so she could sit down too.
We went for dinner at the British Beer Company.  We like to eat there because we can sit outside and see the gardens and trees.

A visit to Massachusetts

Now that school is done for the year, we took Nick on a road trip to Massachusetts to visit Grammy.

Nick was happy on the long drive, and he was especially happy to arrive at the Residence Inn Marriott Hotel.
Nick has his own bed on a pull out couch.

He set up his computer on the pillows nearby so he had everything arranged to his liking!

Adventureland!

This week Nick and his class went on a field trip to Adventureland!

When the permission slip came home, mom said, "what good news, this is your favorite place to visit!"

Nick's teacher sent home a message that Nick had a great time.  He even went on a roller coaster called Turbulence!  Here are some pictures of Nick and Kristin having fun at Adventureland.

Happy Birthday Daddy

Today was daddy's birthday.  He spent most of the day starting to get Nick's pool ready for swimming.  It took a long time and dad will have to do more work tomorrow.

In the evening we gave daddy a flying saucer ice cream sandwich with a candle on top instead of a big cake.  Nick and mom even bought dad a funny card.
