After the official birthday party, we invited family to stay for a dinner BBQ. All three sets of grandparents, Great-grandma Kuntz and Great-grandpa Bride, Aunt Liza & Uncle Jeff, and two great-aunts hung around for a bit longer. Unfortunately we all missed Aunt Lori and Uncle Brian, as they had just moved to California the week before and couldn't make it back up for the party.
Carson had a great time opening presents! He loved hanging all of the ribbon around his neck. We had to pack up all his "baby" toys to make room for his "big boy" toys. Grandpa Rader saved his present for the end. The grand finale was a remote control car. If you look very carefully, you will see Grandpa's legs in the background of the picture. He is controlling the remote that is sending Carson's new car around and around and around!
