Saddle Up for Fun, Sawyer Lynn Turns One

One of the most exciting things in my life has been being able to be pregnant with my sister Kendahl (twice) and with my sister-in-law Amanda (once). Sawyer and Brighton are one month apart and have become the best of friends. They love playing with one another and always have the best time. So we were more than excited to celebrate Sawyer Lynn's 1st birthday at Shane & Amanda's new house!

Naturally the theme was "cowgirl" since Shane & Amanda live on a gorgeous farm in Simpsonville. They have 3 horses that provide endless entertainment for the kids. Sawyer's outfit is from her baby shower that we threw them...I love how perfect it fit her! Cannot believe this little peach of a niece is one year old! Love you Sawyer Lynn and look forward to many more birthdays with you!

Brighton Kevin Turning One: His Actual Birth Day Celebration

In our family, a birthday means waking to balloons in your crib/bed/room. So for Brighton, he was ecstatic to awake to green balloons greeting him on his birthday. Sporting his adorable camping pajamas, he per the norm was all smiles.

With a special birthday breakfast complete with party cake mini muffins and fun-fetti waffles, he was ready to tackle being ONE!

Ready for some afternoon fun, he was a crawling machine at House of Boom. The birthday boy loves making his way around the trampolines and into the foam pit. He thinks he owns the place! He also loves to be "chased" around so he can go extra fast.

We opted for a special family dinner to celebrate the birthday boy! He is such a delight and wonderful addition to us that it felt right to all be together for his big day.

Back at the home front, he opened a few little gifts. In line with his "happy camper" birthday theme (a post to come on that soon!), I found the cutest fox bath towel for him to use this fall. Also a precious fox and friends place, cup & utensil set as he begins to navigate his big boy meals! And a fury little fox friend to accompany him on all of his fun!

We had a great day celebrating our sweet boy's 1st birthday! I hope he will always cherish the moments and the celebrations!
