On Feburary 23, our little girl turned 2! Anna has been talking about going to the beach every day since we left the beach for Christmas. Because of this, we had a fun "beach party" to celebrate as it snowed outside heavily! Here's some of the fun little things I did to decorate (thanks to Pinterest!):
Our favorite pictures of Anna's 2nd year in the shape of a 2.
A special beach ball veggie tray
Flip flop nutter butters
Party favors for the kids - it says "I DIG your friendship. Love, Anna" It includes a shovel, rake, scoop and a deflated mini beach ball.
All in various colors!
We had "submarine" sandwiches since they're out in the ocean if you get far enough from the shore. ;) We also had (gold)fish and chips!
Her beach cake! The original cake that I ordered was made wrong so I actually was able to get this one for free. Thank you, Wal-Mart! It was delicious.
Some of our sweet friends at the party. Hannah is one of Anna's best friends!
Daddy helped Anna open gifts
So did Sawyer
I think everyone was having a pretty good time
Anna and Elena were searching for shells in our sandbox filled with beans. It was a huge hit with all the kids!
We snapped a family shot during the party. Don't you just love Anna's little outfit? Made with love by her Grammy!
It's hard to get 10 littles on a couch to all look in the same direction. I think Anna had a great time at her party!
Some of our RUF students wanted to re-create the picture on the sofa the following day. So, here she is with her "big" friends, loving every minute of it!
One of her favorite gifts was from 2 of her aunts - the cozy coupe! We look forward to the day when we can go around the neighborhood in it when the weather warms up.
