"Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates." Deuteronomy 4: 6-9

Carson's 2nd Birthday Party

The theme of Carson's 2nd Birthday party was "Under the Sea". I didn't realize how much fun stuff there was to do with an Under the Sea party! I made a photo collage on a fishing net of pictures of Carson over the past year.
My sister is the most creative person I know and she (along with the help of my Dad too) made this submarine for the kids to poke their heads through and take pictures! It looks just like the submarine on Carson's birthday invitations. We borrowed an inflatable water slide from a friend as the main attraction. It was a big hit!
Carson had a blast sliding and playing in the pool. We had the sand table out for the kids to play in. We also put out a slip n' slide and a large beach ball sprinkler. Tanner watching all the birthday party fun! We had fun making "Under the Sea" foods like peanut butter and jellyfish sandwiches and Octopus hotdogsInstead of ordering a big cake, we made "shark cupcakes" (thanks Martha Stewart).
And I made Carson his own small birthday cake.
We sang "Happy Birthday" to him...Carson told everyone, "Ready, set, go" :)
Carson got lots of new fun toys including this guitar from Nana and Papa!
We had such a fun day celebrating Carson with our family and friends!
