The ONE has come

Yesterday, was Carson's first birthday. What an incredible year this has been. Jam-packed with so many wonderful memories, and amazing moments. The blessings are beyond countable. All day yesterday, and as I write this, I am overwhelmed with joy, pride, and thankfulness. More than words could ever say.

Yesterday we celebrated the first birthday and had way too much fun. :)
Starting with birthday breakfast- a pancake decorated with frosting and sprinkles.

Then we headed off to the zoo.
Stopping for some lunch and a hardwood store (he-he- not part of the birthday celebration, but fun when you have a sucker in the car.)

Finally we arrived and enjoyed the LA zoo.

We then headed back home to take Papa out for a Veteran's day dinner. However, the waitress found out it was also Carson's first birthday and she brought him a special treat. :)

Happy First Birthday my handsome little man. I love you so very much!!!!

Also Happy Veteran's Day-- Thank you and may God bless each of our veterans and their families for their sacrifice on our behalf. Freedom is not free and I am proud to support and pray for our military.
