Lillian's Fourth Bithday Party

Yesterday was Lillian's fourth birthday party. Lillian had decided weeks ago that she wanted a princess cake for her birthday. Eric was excited to try his hand at making a traditional Swedish Prinsesstaorta. This wasn't quite what Lillian had in mind when she requested a "princess cake", but the results were pretty spectacular and the cake didn't last long once the candles had been blown out. We also head an egg hunt for the kids. Hunting for eggs is a great activity for little kids and Easter Eggs are always in abundant supply this time of year. This year we modified the rules such that the kids were each assigned a color or color combination and told only to hunt for their color eggs. It upped the level of hunting challenge and helped prevent the free-for-all chaos of a typical egg hunt.
