Charlie requested spaghetti and a monkey cake for his birthday meal. Our beloved babysitter Gemma and our neighbor Angus joined us for dinner and I think the little birthday boy had a good day. Gemma brought a new race track which was a big hit with all of the boys.
Charlie was melancholy but I think it was the realization that his party is not until Saturday and he'd have to wait 5 more sleeps until then. Funny how he is a ham for the camera most of the time but couldn't be bothered while we were singing to him. Big 5 year old.
