This year, I headed out to the Arboretum for Nicole's birthday tea. We discovered this fun outing last year in honor of her 30th birthday http://christyrobbins.blogspot.com/2008/10/harvest-tea-at-arboretum.html, and this year we were joined by her Mom and sister. :O) It was one of the ONLY beautiful days so far since they brought out their fall decorations, and florals. I went after Saturday School, and arriving after noon, I had to park a few miles away and be bused in to the arboretum. It was well worth the crowds. I love the colors, the pumpkin lined walks, and, of course, the tea-the food is delicious, and our waiter (the same one as last year) is fabulous. We also had some interesting, well dressed ladies at the table across from us.
The Birthday Girl
I love hanging out with Nicole for many reasons, but I can't help but appreciate that she takes lots of pictures too, so this go 'round she has the people pics, and macro etc on her camera. I know they will be great, and I can't wait to see them. Here are a few more of my photos in the meantime. I mostly just walked around and appreciate the day, and Nicole had to do all the hardwork. That's what friends are for! Yay, for birthdays, and beautiful days, and eating a little too many sweets!
