Yesterday, the biggest thing on our agenda was Easter tea at Robinson-Bray House in Steetsville.
Our reservation was at 2, timed so that Clara would make her ballet class at 4. The weather Saturday morning was beautiful, so Clara and I took Nanny to the park to play for a bit.
The Easter tea at the tea house did not disappoint, and Clara got quite into it, drinking chocolate milk from a tea cup.
The carrot soup was delicious.
But the highlight was the butterscotch pecan scone they brought to the table, and the tiny finger sandwiches.
The scone was decadent, and the sandwhiches were extremely well crafted, my favorite being the curried chicken with cashews. I was actually fearful that my body would not react well to the amount of gluten I ingested, but I had no ill effects fortunately.
And of course, I couldn’t say no to dessert at that point.
We dyed Easter eggs, after dance class and a light dinner, and Clara achieved something remarkable with vinegar water and food colouring.
First she got the hang of it:
Then we started playing with food colouring to get crazy vibrant eggs.
The entire stash, that was so aggressively coloured. The decision was made NOT to eat them. Just in case.
And then Clara managed this:
I’m not sure how someone who’s so obsessed with dinosaurs managed to create an egg that looks like a dinosaur egg. You couldn’t achieve that effect even if you tried.
Then snacks for the bunny.
And then we were all off to bed so the bunny could pop by with this:
Loving having my family here.
