Tea Time

A few weekends ago we went to Coral Springs to surprise our friend Ann for her birthday. This was her first birthday since her husband died in February (see post "My Friend Kenny) so we wanted it to be full of friends and fun.

We had dinner Friday night at DJ's on the Beach, then Saturday we ladies had "Tea" followed by some pampering at a spa.

It was fun to put on these old hats, gloves and bobbles. I might have this hat on backwards. We had so much fun pretending to be fancy smancy.
We had a very relaxing time with our friends "down south".

This weekend we ladies are going to Vermont for Homecoming at Norwich University where Ann's oldest son is the quarterback of the football team.

Kris has moved to his final post before redeploying back home. That was a real relief to hear. This post is apparently very large and away from the "action."
Austin was able to IM several times last week. Kylee is going out to Kansas to visit Kris' wife Katie and then to visit Austin's girlfriend Kayli at college for their homecoming weekend. Hopefully sometime soon the rest of us will get to meet Kayli. She's such a sweet girl.
There'll be no Army "business" for me this week (hopefully) and I'm looking forward to a break from it all.

Looks like you ladies had a great time with the tea party. Sometimes it's fun to play dress up and pretend. My friend and I took her daughter to "tea cups and tiara's" I had a blast, being a "proper" lady for a change. That was really sweet of you to make sure your friend had a good birthday.
