The day before we headed to Maine I took the girls (along with my mom and sister in law) to a tea room.
It was a lovely way to spend an afternoon.
(the little tea shop as you enter)
To say that the girls were excited was an understatement.
Anna wore a white eyelet dress with peach flowers in her hair, and Abigail wore a peach colored eyelet dress with white flowers in her hair. Better than the whole tea for me.
Of course it wasn't quite as relaxing as when my mom, sister in law and I go alone...
but it sure was sweet.
We ordered the girls their own pot of decaffeinated tea. They loved putting in sugar and putting in sugar and putting in sugar.
And we order "afternoon tea" for Anna and Elia (her cousin) to share. They loved the little finger sandwiches and little cakes.
Oh and the heart shaped scones... to die for!
Once they got to the top oohed and ahhed over the desserts.
Abigail had her own little, pretty, tray of special desserts that Jackie picked up for her at the "Abigail bakery" a special allergy free bakery near her home. I love how the woman at the tea room was able to bring them out for her so pretty.
So we sipped, we chatted, we tried to not be so wiggly, and we had a lovely afternoon to remember forever.
