TURTLE COOKIES/ Preppy Turtles



Our grand-nephew and grand-niece, siblings who are ages 1 and 4, celebrated their birthdays with a joint party in the park. It was a beautiful spring day at Yards Park in Washington, DC along the Potomac River. There are oodles and oodles of discoveries yet to come but on this day the little ones frolicked on the grass, crawled through the tube and flew kites with their Dads. What a great way to celebrate their first big year of life!

These turtles are the perfect cookie for these one-year-old lads and soon-to-be toddlers. I had to go with preppy colors for these future heart-throbs.

See Tiara cookies for his big sister and her gal pals.
