Explorer Birthday Party

So as promised here are pictures from Daxton's 1st Birthday
theme: Explorer
We had a little too much fun getting ready for this party, but it was all in the name of our little boy. 
And I'm sure he enjoyed it as much as we did. 














This was our take home gift for all the little kiddios

Looking at these photos of the Birthday Boy takes me back to my own children's first birthdays.

Colin was born Dec. 10 and his party was his first experience with cake.

Later that month we went to the candle mass at church. It was so beautiful as everyone lit their candles and then...this little voice rang out...CAKE????? The whole congregation busted out laughing!

Blessings on all of you and may you have a lifetime of wonderful memories like this day with Daxton and family/friends. Love you guys!
