Carson turned eight! So, it was four months ago and he's a third of the way to nine, but better late than never right? His actual birthday was the Friday before Memorial Day weekend and since we were going on vacation, the lucky birthday boy got to skip school on his birthday. The day before his big day, Abby, Mason, Elliot and I brought in Subway sandwiches and ate lunch with him in his classroom.
On his actual birthday, he woke up, opened presents, and then we went as a family to get donuts before packing up the car and heading to a family reunion.
He got his own set of scriptures with his name inscribed on the front from Mike and I.
Abby picked out this Lego set to be from her and the little boys.

We ended at our house with ice cream sundaes and they ran around like crazy in the back yard shooting each other with Nerf guns Carson got from Grandma D. and climbing all over our big toy (like on the top where you are not supposed to climb...I considered it a success that nobody was sent home injured) until their parents picked them up.
It was a fun birthday and obviously a special one being that Carson turned eight and was baptized shortly after. We love our Carson man and I can not believe how fast he is growing up!
