We had a PERFECT day to celebrate Annika's 2nd Birthday on Sesame Street.
After 3 months of non stop planning, creating decorations, making banners, assembling centerpieces and planning the food menu the day had finally arrived and it was a hit all the way around.
Our daughter was so excited to see all the fun Sesame Street characters everywhere and to have 10 of her little friends along with family to enjoy the fun day ahead.
From balloons, to music, to Pinata smashing she smiled and had a great time.
When Elmo arrived at her party to sing and dance with her she was in Heaven. It was the cutest thing and to just see her face light up because Elmo came to wish her a Happy Birthday was PRICELESS.
Enjoy the pictures. It was a fun day had by all :)
