Mo Willems' Pigeon Birthday theme party

We had a Mo Willems Pigeon birthday party for Jillian when she turned 3 this past weekend.  We love the Mo Willems books - so we designed her birthday part around Mo Willems' books: Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus & Pigeon Finds a Hotdog

We of course served hotdogs, brats and metts - with assorted hotdog toppings. 
Pigeon Puppets

Hotdog Cupcakes
"The Bus" from Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus

The bus was a hit with all the kids!
