Sawyer's Second Birthday

Sunday, July 17th we celebrated Sawyer's second birthday with the family. Penguins was the theme, and we gathered at my in-laws to celebrate S Man.

For his first birthday we enjoyed a day at the KC Zoo as just a little family, and Sawyer had loved the penguins. When we went earlier this year it was all about the penguins again, so I chose that as the theme. Plus it gave it a little bit of a Christmas in July vibe. Nothing like trying to beat the heat than thinking about snow and ice!
I accidentally lost two of our balloons walking
out of the store. My in-laws saved the day
with the B&W balloons!

It was a happy day, a bit stressful as with any party, but the smile on his face when he opened presents or played with those balloons was priceless. This kid, seriously, he keeps us going because he radiates joy!
