Since Daddy was out-of-town for Sawyer's actual birthday we decided to celebrate the weekend before (he didn't even know the difference). The day began with chocolate chip pancakes which is always a crowd favorite!

|this was probably his favorite activity even though I think he made everyone in the building nervous because he was so small, but he LOVED it|

After leaving the trampoline arena we headed to Chick-fil-a for Sawyer's lunch of choice. We ended it with Spiderman cupcakes (Sawyer's 1 birthday request) of course. Sawyer doesn't like frosting so that is why the cupcakes look a little plain :)
After lunch and a little playing we said good-bye to our friend Jake. Even though it was a very small party I couldn't resist a little party favor. Taking Sawyer's cue Spiderman was the "theme" of the day. I purchased Spiderman notebooks and Spiderman crayons at the Dollar Tree and stuck them in a bag for each of the kids. Sawyer and Nora played with that for several hours the next day.
After returning home and taking a nap it was time to prepare for a family dinner with Uncle Cliff and Aunt Jess. Sawyer requested tacos and of course Spiderman cupcakes. He was very excited that his party was continuing through the evening :)

The parents were exhausted by the end of the day, but it was all worth it because Sawyer loved every minute of his little celebration. It was nice to have a small celebration and to spend our time really celebrating this amazing boy. We are so blessed that God entrusted us with him 4 years ago!
