My baby is four years old! This is a particularly strange occasion for me because Mr A's youngest daughter was 4 when Ikaika was born. So, its weird to see him reach the same milestone so quickly.
I should win some Mom-of-the-Year Award for these cupcakes. I came home after a long night shift and baked these because Ikaika wanted to eat cake at school. I cheated and used a box mix, but added a can of pumpkin puree, which probably means I broke even on whatever vintage scale is used to measure homemade baked goods. Do they look familiar? Pink seems to be a perennial favorite.
On the 18th we woke up early, ate a hearty breakfast of cake-pops, cold pizza and ice cream then spent the rest of the day doing stuff at the preschool. Saturday we let the birthday pick his own poison. He chose a trip to the Hilo Zoo and Keikiland bounce house at the Prince Kuhio Plaza.

Among many generous gifts he received (all of which were met with excited squeals of delight - THANK YOU EVERYONE!), my friend introduced him to Lego. He's never had a Lego set before and I have to admit that they have come a long way since my days - back when there was usually just a huge bin with hundreds of tiny primary colored pieces. I might have to start searching for some second hand Lego.
