I think this was Wesley's first time camping since he has been walking. It was a little cold, and as soon as Ryan got a fire going Wesley instinctively knew to hold out his hands to warm them.
We brought our bikes and went for a ride.
We parked the bikes by a stream to throw rocks in the water, and so I could try to push Wesley in.
In the morning Charlie found a little friend in our campsite. (Scroll down for video).
A couple of days later we had some family over for homemade pizza and the pirate cake Charlie had requested. I had done the same cake before on Ben's fourth birthday. The headband is something he made that day in Primary.
I think Charlie is glad to be getting older. He is anxious to go to a real school like his brothers. He is still what I refer to as our feisty child. But he can be very thoughtful, too. Helpful, grumpy, singing, yelling, giggly, intense, charming. He's a mixed bag. But fun to have around.
A few nights ago we were learning D&C 1:38 when I mistakenly said "prophet" instead of "servant". Charlie laughed and said, "Loser!". I wasn't sure I heard him right and asked him to repeat himself. He said, "Mom's a loser cuz she said 'prophet'!" Turns out he learned that word from the movie The Spy Next Door. I should have know not to let my kids watch a movie that has the acting talents of both George Lopez and Billy Ray Cyrus.
