Tea Time

Saturday Obi Wanda, Hammy and I celebrated the beginning of spring at our annual ladies' tea at the Grand Floridian. We wait all year for our day to get dressed up, drink fancy tea and eat gorgonzola and pear tea sandwiches... so worth the year's wait.

But first we had to do this:

Doc and Obi Wanda played their first Upward soccer game and, goodness, were they cute. They played well too. Obi Wanda and the girls seemed to enjoy the huddle and snack breaks most of all, which was good because they took so many breaks they could've worked for the county.

Doc looked like he was having a good time even though the opposing team had a Goliath in their ranks. I'm not saying the child was too old for the team, but the words "recruiting violation" did come to mind. I didn't understand the appeal of sports until we spent that beautiful spring morning chilling in our lawn chairs. I could get on board with it after all.

Afterward we rushed home, took down our pony tails, threw on our girly sandals and headed to tea.

Not a bad clean up if I do say so myself. I even popped in my contacts for the occasion. I can't tell you how much I treasure this tradition.

One of my favorite things about my girl is that just hours before she was smelling the flowers, she was doing this:

My mother (who taught me to appreciate my kids for who they are) and I agree she's one cool little girl.
