Many years ago, the girls started inviting relatives over for a tea party when we were in Colorado. They wanted a chance to have fun while getting to know everyone better. We were to dress up and wear hats.
When they were younger, they often found “dress up” clothes and shoes in the closets, but now Andrea and Audrey have outgrown most of them. However, the hats are becoming a lot more fun.
The boys enjoy themselves also. They go out with the uncles and explore or listen to stories the uncles share while sampling the treats the girls made.
Relaxing outside and watching the hummingbirds is a favorite activity of mine. For most of this summer, we have not had many birds visit. I suspect a neighbor’s feeder is preferred! However, yesterday we had a lot of migrating hummers stop at our feeder.
