A year ago, I think we started a tradition. Well, we've done it two years in a row. That's the starting of a tradition, right?
We went on a three-generation girl outing to see The Nutcracker in December. You can read about last year's trip to the theatre here.
Well, as in any good tradition, things change and we must be flexible.
At the last minute, we had an extra ticket, so we brought A BOY with us!
Israel was quite surprised how much he liked it. He went home, of course, telling his brothers and father all about the fight scenes and the Russian dancers. We, of course, took him back to his brothers before we went to tea.
A little more flexibility was needed. The tea room we picked out online looked so lovely, so perfect. When we found our way there via Mapquest, we found that it had been turned into a yogurt shop! Well, that wasn't quite what we had in mind. Since it really was Meg's day, we gave her the choices of what we should do. We ended up at Mimi's Cafe (in honor of you, I think, Jael).
We still had a very lovely time eating a fantastic lunch ending with a delightful assortment of mousses. How perfect is that? Lemon, chocolate, and .....raspberry. Uh, I think. I took way too long to journal this. I do remember that Meg and I agreed which was the best. Amazingly enough, it wasn't the chocolate. And it wasn't the lemon. It was the other one. The one I can't remember.
A very good day. A very nice tradition. One that that I hope will grow to include many more little (and big girls) as our family grows.
