Tea Time

A weekend of playdates, that's how it panned out to be last weekend.  Our cousin Kaitlynn came to visit from Phoenix, Arizona.  We invited her over to our place for a fun afternoon.  We had not seen her in a while, since Easter I believe, so it sure was a nice surprise when we heard she would be in town.
What better way for two little girls to spend their time than with a fancy Tea Party?

Out came Sydney's special tea set (the real one of course) and even though there was no time for baking elegant cookies or making delicate sandwiches, we found a way to make it pretty and enjoyable.  We did seek out to make tasty tea finding a jasmine infused green tea full of flavor that filled the kitchen with a delicious aroma.

Iced tea was their choice since it literally felt like a Costa Rican summer day outside our Southern California home, hot and muggy... although don't get me wrong...a hot summer day on a Costa Rican beach sounds very appealing!

The simple things that children enjoy never cease to amaze me, it literally took us 8 minutes to make the tea and after setting up some little snacks my little chef Sydney and her cousin enjoyed a lovely afternoon.

How does the saying go... sugar and spice and everything nice, that's what little girls are made of? Yes?

Well I agree!
