Weekend in Pictures: Birthdays, Breast Cancer Walks & Bonfires

We very rarely have a dull weekend and honestly I really like staying busy. This weekend was exceptionally busy but Sawyer got to do so many new things, he seemed tor really enjoy himself. We started out Saturday morning with the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk to celebrate our friend Mel's fight against the disease. We also walked for my Grandma (my dad's mom) who lost her hard battle 2 years ago. After the walk, my parents, Sawyer and me tried out the new breakfast at Springfield Brewing Company (so yum!), we definitely recommend it. 
Saturday night Trina & Darlene hosted an Appelquist Foundation Bonfire at their house to celebrate the success of this year's tournament. We raised a whopping $8500!!!!  
We finished the weekend Sunday, with 2 birthday parties. Gavin (my coworker and friend Karen's grandson) turned 1 and celebrated at the Fire House by MSU. He had a costume party so we dressed Sawyer up like a Tiger (of course). Cruze (our friend Susan & Dustin's son) turned 2 and had his party at Nathaniel Greene Park in the new Botanical Garden Center. 
Here are the pictures....

Very clever way to drink a bottle, he must have been pooped from the walk
