We were infinitely blessed to have such sweet friends. A fellow livejournal friend who knew how much Z loved macarons gave us a box of macarons. She specially came by to where we were to pass to us.
The beautiful macarons (see http://www.la-rose-noire.com/node/208 for the flavours)
I feared we had spoilt our kids in a terrible manner by getting them hooked on such decadent delights. Both boys loved the macarons to bits but I thought it was rather sweet, not unlike the sweetness of Laduree macarons. Mr H joked about sugar rush and Z put on a funny stoned expression to depict how sugar rush would look like. X, on the other hand, was unbothered and ate as much as he could.
