Happy 5th Birthday Camden!

Camden was happy to be able to go to Fallon to celebrate his fifth birthday!  What a grown-up guy, I can't believe he is already 5!  He asked for a chocolate cake with a t-ball player and a baseball.  Here he is lighting his own candle!  For lunch, we had hot dogs, macaroni salad, watermelon, chips & dip, and homemade root beer.  The kids enjoyed playing with some water balloons!  We had cake and ice cream and opened presents.  Camden had lots of fun with a dinosaur excavation kit that we got for him!  He also got a white, snap-up, cowboy Sunday shirt that he asked for, his own pocket knife to learn to use, a new cowboy hat, some books, toy cows, a cowboy shirt from Grandma and Grandpa Winder, and some fun treats! 

He was also excited to open all kind of cards and packages when we got home!  Grandma Eggett sent water squirters, a shirt, and popsicle molds, Great-Aunt Gaydawn sent a book, Rich Great sent Rockwell stickers and a shirt, and Grammy and Grampy Eggett sent a card and some money for a treat!  Camden was happy!

Camden is a wonderful boy!  He has learned the names of all the letters in the alphabet and is working on sounds. He loves books and going to the library.  Some of his favorite books include The Berenstein Bears, Little Critter, Arthur, Clifford and Curious George.  He got an activity book for his birthday and was able to do the word searches!  He likes to draw and play games, including I Spy Go Fish, Cootie Game, and Spot It.  Camden loves to ride his bike and has learned to ride without training wheels this last year.  He enjoys going to the bike parks and riding on the ramps.  He also loves to go to any park to run, climb, play, and get wet at the splash pads.  Camden is a good boy in primary.  A month or so ago, he gave the talk and told the story of Joseph Smith all by himself!  Camden loves his brother Coulton.  He watches out for Coulton and enjoys playing with him.  He even helps Coulton say prayers at dinner time.  Camden has chores that he is responsible for every day, including feeding Spud and watering Boots.  He is a happy boy and we are so glad to have him as the oldest boy in our family.  We love you Camden!
