We started with a big tray of rainbow-sprinkled cinnamon rolls. Then a treasure hunt for presents (complete with rhyming clues that led our birthday princess high and low and even outside to the backyard)–then the joy of opening them! Horses, a new doll, new stories to bolster her already fantastic imagination. Off to her favorite corner of creation to spend some time with the neighborhood chickens and explore quaint shops along the rolling brook. Back home, a well chosen dinner of hot dogs, corn on the cob, and of course: birthday cake! It was a day filled to bursting with sweetness + light. What better way to celebrate nine years with this sweetest of sweet girls? Happy birthday, Sugar. We love you!
