Manning's First Festival

How on earth are we celebrating one journey around the sun with our baby bear already?

Manning's first year has been a magical (partly delirious from lack of sleep) ride, full of overseas adventures, learning, laughs, cheekiness, chasing and cuddles. His sensitive little soul and heart of gold make him pure happiness to be around. 

We celebrated his special day with a backyard, Sunday afternoon festival. The day was spent with family and friends, full of love and laughter.
