Today was a busy birthday day for everyone in this house!
Parker picked out presents, helped wrap them and kept it a secret from Carson until this morning.
Shhhh! Don't tell him I got him 2 little people cars (a digger and a recycle truck), and a Lightening McQueen car!
We started our adventure at Grandma/Grandpa Stecher's house for a few gifts and a quick visit. Parker wanted to bring treats so we stopped at Old Towne Bakery for some sugar cookies!
Then we headed to Chuckie Cheese Pizza....we did this for Parker as well.
Carson was thrilled with the "characters" on stage...
His brother, not so much.
Check out Parker hiding in the background in the booth in the very back row, chewing on his fingers in distress..
Carson wanted to say...suck it up...but since he's so wise in his 1 year of life...he kept the comment to himself.
WOW!!! This thing moves...
These two really DO look alike...
Then we headed to Toys R Us for his birthday crown, balloon and overhead announcement.
"Hey, hey, did you know it's my birthday today?"
After returning home, Grandma Vancil came over and delivered a present to the house.
AHH! Another gift...FOR MEEEE?!?!
LOOK it has a BOW!
Carson was excited and stimulated to find many different colors of Elmo's on his first birthday blanket made by Grandma...Parker liked it too, after Carson went to bed he wanted to snuggle on it to watch Caillou.
Carson and the rest of us had a great day celebrating this little 1 year old! It's crazy to think how it was just a year ago that he came into our lives!
We are gearing up for a birthday party on Saturday...more pictures to follow.
