We're having a snow storm here in Oklahoma City today. We opened the tearoom for a tea party and a bridal shower. I'm so glad we opened because the tea party ended up having a precious story that I'm going to share with you.
Addie Sanders had her 6 year old tea party with us in
March 20, 2004.
This was taken at our old location on Northwest Expressway.

Her father took this picture with Addie because her mom was having labor pains. Her mom Amy actually had her baby sister on Addie's birthday which is March 22nd.

Addie was so cute and I love this picture with her pink boa.

All of Addie's party guests lined up sitting on the bench after the fashion show.

Flash forward to Ellie's 6th birthday party.
March 20, 2010 - Rose Cottage.
Ellie is the baby girl that Addie's mom was going into labor with at Addie's party.

Ellie with the name sign smiling with parasol.
Ellie was born on the same day as her sister.

Ellie's guests at her party by the fountain.

Ellie and her mom Amy.

Addie (who is now 12 years old), Ellie and mom.
Her mom said even with the snow it wouldn't deter her from having her daughter's party.
How sweet to have two daughters both born on the same day have their 6th bithday with us at A Spot For Tea. It made my day even with a snow storm. And this is why I love my job.
Happy Birthday Ellie and Addie! Thank you Sanders family for letting us be a part of the celebration.

Spring Break 2010

Spring Break 2010 in Grapevine, Texas at

The boys couldn't wait to get there. Brock kept asking how long it takes to get to Texas.
We met my best friend Cathy who lives in Ft. Worth and we got a chance to relax
and let the kids swim and bond. It was a girls trip (Eric catered two weddings this weekend). We hadn't seen each other since 2008 so even though we talk usually every other week by phone it was great to just spend some time together.

Brock and Frank (Cathy's younger son) spent a great deal of time in the wave pool.
They are 6 months apart in birthdays...it was fun watching them become fast friends.

Guys do you know your moms have been friends for twenty eight years?

Benjamin and Blake goofing around by the mushroom.

Lazy river...aahh.

Cathy took Frank and Brock down the river.
I took the boys down the fast slides...the Howlin Tornado Ride was cool.
Cathy and I laugh...she's more the river floating type and
I'm more the Howlin Tornado type.
Everything is so campy...and they do a fantastic job of being kid friendly.
You know how important that is to me and something I'm always watching with other businesses how they cater to the kids.

Brock having a power nap. Can you say worn out?

The three amigos.

They swam till almost closing time...9pm.

Then we had late dinner in the Camp Critter Cafe...this is the lookout over storytime.

Lookout over the lobby and looking to the waterpark.

The boys had a great time hanging out.

Animal Paw on the wall. Love the big trees in the lobby.

When do we eat?

French fries and hot dogs in tin pail...love it.

Brock has food with his ketchup.

Breakfast Buffet

Talking trees in storytime

Thanks boys for taking mom on a trip.

Ben at Beartrack Landing.
I don't get an opportunity to be away from the tearoom because of our schedule on the weekends, but I'm glad we decided to steal away a couple of days for spring break. Its always fun when Cathy and I get together...no, it wasn't Padre Island or the beach (remember the days, Cathy?) but hey, the boys had a blast. I was thinking only 3 more spring breaks before Blake is a senior in high school. Its going too fast. Enjoying every moment. I hope the boys each have good friends that will remind them of when they were young and FUN! We all need more adventures and fun. Life can get so serious you forget to have fun.
My New To Do List...Have More Fun!
