For me, the silver lining of the horrific events that have taken place in Japan is that it has brought my great friend from high school, Kylan and her family home to Ames (for at least a bit anyways). On Sunday her daughter Gracie turned two! It has to be one of the best hand-made birthday parties we've been to. (Check out the elmo and cookie monster cupcakes and elmo decor below!)
You couldn't have wished for better weather. And, although we couldn't stay long Sloane and I had so much fun and we're so happy to be able to celebrate Gracie's birthday!
