I had a beautiful day with friends and family. My college roommate's family drove all the way from Yorba Linda to spend time with us for the weekend. In the bright early morning of Easter, we started with a fun sweet treat project for our kids. We ended up with cute little yellow peeps made out of marshmallows, chocolate and food colors.
While the kids were busy doing their own thing, we secretly set up a surprise table for them. They were thrilled to receive the cuddly, cooling and huge-able heating thermal aid zoo characters from the Easter bunny. Their new favorite pets' names are Tiny, Bella, Jojo, and Olive.
Our morning rolled by quickly and by the time we got back from dim sum, it was almost three o'clock. Since we promised the kids an Easter party, off to the kitchen we go. With the help of my new "adult" sous chef, we were able to get a few more treats done in just about an hour.
I had a couple more treats in mind, but no more time so it was time to set up the sweet treat table.
My sous chef for the day was incredibly creative. She decorated the egg shells with wild garden flowers and leaves that she picked from the backyard. So vibrant and beautiful!
Both parents and children had a great time playing sack racing game, and munching on sweet treats.
It was a perfect Easter day as the weather was gorgeous. We closed our day with a delicious barbecue dinner.
And to top it off, we also enjoyed the delish homemade pate that was delivered to me in the morning of Easter from one of my blog readers from San Francisco. It was so good that everyone begged for the recipe.
And for dessert, a super rich and yummy chocolate cake was served to our delight. It was also delivered from the same person. In case you read this post, thank you so much for the amazing food and your thoughtfulness! We thoroughly enjoyed every morsel.
