We arrived at the beautiful botanical garden in Illinois on a nice sunny day. We were dressed in our new pretty dresses and were excited about our "high tea" date.
We soon poured our tea and added some sugar cubes and waited for our friends. We ate some little desserts and got a little goofy with the photo booth.
We also made some fun tissue paper flowers and then had to strike another pose for the camera.
After that we went and toured the greenhouse and outside area. It was beautiful!!! The many different plants and flowers were stunning.
I hope you find this letter one day when you are older and remember the fun day we had. The tea cups were white with gold and red in them, you didn't like your tea very much and you added 3 sugar cubes. I will remember your adorable star dress you wore and your cute pigtails and of course your fashion glasses. I know you were adorable and the truth is I felt pretty as well with my new hair cut and cause you loved my dress. This date was sponsored by the girl scouts and it is such an honor to go do these things with you! I love our dates!!!

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly. I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos. Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you. This was a super easy one for those little hands. I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting. The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper. EASY, but they enjoyed it! :) It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge! :) I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
