Up and Over

And yes, the bench was put there to keep him away from the stuff on the otherside! Dang it...

Hurry up already...

We met up with Jenna and Kaleigh at the park last week, it was nice until about 11. I can't wait for the cooler temperatures that we have been promised for this week!

Love this little guy!

Playing outside...

When we had dinner at Jason's Dad's the other night Missy took Carson out to play on the slide, swing and tramp. He loved every second!

Gardening with Grandma

While my parents were in town my mom helped me clean out a few flower beds in the back and plants some new plants. Carson really enjoyed hanging out with us while we worked.

He fell into a muddy bed trying to grab a toy and came up with half his head covered in mud... Lol, it didn't faze him at all. This kid really loves the outdoors!

Botanical Gardens

My parents came out to visit for Carson's birthday and stayed for several days, so we went to see some sights while they were in town. Today we checkout out the Botanical Gardens in Phoenix near the Zoo. They were really pretty, but we missed wild flower season and the Butterfly Exhibit, so we'll have to catch those next year.

My parents got us a jogging stroller for Carson's birthday, and I am excited to start training for an upcoming 5k!

Carson insisted on walking most of the time (it's his new thing ;) ), and would try to walk into the flower beds, pick the flowers and then eat them... Pretty sure I got a few dirty looks from workers... but give me a break he's 1!

Carson's 1st Birthday Bash!

WooHoo! We had the big celebration on Saturday, and it was a double birthday party with Carson's cousin Kaleigh. If you have ever met their grandparents when both kids are around I don't have to tell you that, "they were both born on the same day, 09-09-09, and they were 9 hours apart, and Kaleigh was even born at 9pm!" Yeah, way too much information right? ;)

Since it was for both kids we ended up with a big list of people coming that was mostly just family, so we decided to have a pool party and bbq. Everyone seemed to have a good time, and we couldn't keep Carson away from the pool.

The birthday boy!!!

Opening presents, he really wasn't that into it, but he got some great toys that he loves to play with now!

These were the giant cupcakes we made, one for each kiddo to destroy! I think he wants me to hurry up and get the show on the road here.

As you can see, Kaleigh was a little more interested in the cake, whereas Carson mainly liked the candles.

We figured Kaleigh could give him a tutorial.

We had another party at his Grandpa Lamb and Lita's a few days later because Lita had to work the day of his party :(. So we had more cake...

Opened more presents...

And then the adults played with them :P

Thanks to everyone who came and made it a special day!

summer time... when the livin's easy

This summer Carson spent a lot of time at the playground (he mainly enjoys playing in the sand and watching other kids).

Figuring out how the dog door works. He now lets himself in and out at his own discretion. I will have to post a video of it later.

Now that he can get outside on his own I often find him sitting on the back porch by himself or with one of his dogs. Sometimes he's playing with a stick, sometimes throwing the ball for Koda, and sometimes he just likes to sit and soak up the sun while watching the wind blow the leaves on the trees. I love to sneak up and take pictures of him.

And he always catches me after the first one...

Carson loves his veggies, and found a new one to add to the list. Corn on the cob!

Carson also loves spending time with his Auntie Sam. And we made good use of her pool a few times this summer. It was nice because I got to learn how to do a front flip, and Carson loves being thrown around and dunked.

Other then me and Jason, Sam is one of Carson's favorite people. He always has a big smile waiting for her when she comes over to play!
