Sweet summer day

A summer day filled with swimming, sweets and good friends... what more could these boys ask for?

We were invited to a tea party this afternoon, where we each got to decorate our own votive candleholders and tiny jars. We lit the candles, learned a little color theory, sipped tea, frosted cupcakes -- and then burned off the sugar in the pool!

We finally dragged ourselves away from our dear hosts, and headed to another swimming invitation! After a week of mostly indoor play avoiding the extreme heat, we were indeed in need of some cool outdoor fun

Michelle - the tea sets belong to my friend, who purchased them at a local Asian market -- or maybe the Mexican grocery, I'm sorry I don't remember for sure!

I should read my posts better before posting. Okay here it goes...I was the friend who the tea sets belonged to (actually my kiddos picked them). We purchased them at a local Asian market in the city where Amanda lives. They were a steal at under $20 and beautiful. We went to only buy one set and walked out with two. We are planning another tea party so...if anybody knows of a good blog with tea party suggestions please let Amanda know. Thanks!
