Going camping

This weekend we went camping. We had a lot of fun. We got to sleep in a tent that we had recently bought. One of the nights, mom put Miles with me so I could keep him warm while she made her bed. It was really fun, because he kept on kicking me under the blankets and he had a really silly face. 
 We also had a lot of fun with campfires. We would go gather sticks from around where were were and throw them into the pit and start a fire. We made a lot of good treats in the fire like s'mores and banana boats. We cooked all of our food in the fire. Some of the food we put on the fire was breakfast burritos and foil dinners. We spent most of our time around the fire and told scary stories when it was dark.
 On Sunday we went climbing with the Judds. It was a lot of fun. We did 4 different routes. The second to the last one was the hardest for me. I went on it 3 times in 3 different pathways. Sometimes I had to wait because there were so many people, but it was worth it.
 This is one of the times that we were telling scary stories around the camp fire. We put all sorts of things in there, like cups, plates, wood and newspaper. Sometimes we put plastic in the fire, but that made a really nasty smell and a black fire. One of the stories was scary and funny at the same time. It was about a guy who went to a barn and went inside. He heard something say: I got you where I want you, and now I'm gonna eat you. He went closer to the sound, and it was coming from a door. He went inside and there was a monkey with a bugger on his finger.
 The last day we were there, we went to Mesa arch in Canyonlands. I got to go on top of the arch. It was really scary, because it was really high off the ground. It doesn't look like that, but over that ledge it goes down down down down. My mom had to hold my hand to be able to do it. On that day I also caught a lizzard. I named it hyper, because he was running around in the bottle that we put him in like crazy. Those are only some of the things that I did, but they were all pretty fun.

My Primary Talk

When my grandma was my age her mother got very sick. She had to stay in bed for about one year she was also in the hospital a lot. The kid's had to do all the house cleaning and cooking. There was a nice lady who brought flowers to her once a week from her garden. My grandma couldn't wait for the flowers to come each week. There was lots of service given by the family and from others in their church. This is what king Benjamin said about service.
Mosiah 2:17-18
And behold, I tell you these things that you may learn wisdom; that ye may learn that when ye are in the service of your fellow beings, ye are only in the service of your God. Behold, ye have called me your king; and if I, whom ye call your king, so labor to serve you, then ought not ye to labor to serve one another.
