BMX Bandit...

I'm really enjoying doing mini-adventures with Charlie, he's at an age where he can get so much more out of every activity.

On Saturday the sun shone in the morning and we spent a few hours at the BMX track.  I can attest that it's actually very difficult to run round an entire adult size BMX track, while holding onto the collar of a 4-yr old. However, after an hour, and perhaps ten collar-supported laps, he was ready...!

Charlie wants to get faster...

Just like his Dad.


Summer evenings...

...mean outside play.  Spiderman jammers, bubbles and a knights shield.  There can't be a four year old in the world who wouldn't be happy with that combination.

It was great to spend yesterday evening at the wedding celebration for Slayer & Vicky. Great to catch up with so many old friends, great to have a dance and great to see Paul and Vicky so happy. It was also great to hear how many people check in here, mainly to see how Charlie is getting on. After these prompts I'm going to make more of an effort to post his adventures on here. And in the meantime a rare shot of a stationary/not eating/not pedalling/not muddy Charlie. I was stunned that the activity of cutting (with 'grown up scissors') and painting a series of crowns took up an hour of virtually silent work. Bonus!
For those of you who know Charlie, rest assured there was the inevitable degeneration into painty-messy-gluey stickyness!
