Declan had second first-birthday party on Saturday.
What would a Carlson birthday bash be without blue-and-white flags adorning the yard?
Declan’s parents set a fairly high standard for themselves. You might remember they like to honor Taylor’s dad with the Mickey Mouse theme.
We don’t own this tradition—one-year-old smearing cake frosting all over his face.
Mama puts an end to the fun.
I don’t have clearance to post pictures of all the guests, but these particular guests have given me carte blanche.
The daddy and Uncle Dusty (in the background wearing his white compression sock from knee surgery).
They celebrated Declan’s successful first year of life well.
Part of his learning experience, since their new house has a pool, was swimming lessons.
He’s being taught to turn over on his back and float until help arrives.
