Robin Eggs and a Tea Party

It was so fun to watch a robin lay her eggs over Easter weekend in a quaint little nest she built in the magnolia tree.

Isn't it beautiful?  At first it just looks like a nest with some eggs.  But when you see it in person, you really marvel at all the work it must have taken momma bird to build her nest, piece by piece, one twig at a time.  How does she engineer it so perfectly round and cozy looking?  And then to make the eggs, phew!  She laid 1 egg per day.  They were the most exquisite shade of blue/green/teal.

This weekend I tagged along with my little girl to a birthday party.

Of course I brought my camera, because my friend is the party queen and always puts on a delicious spread (a few weeks ago she did a LOST themed party for her husband's 30th birthday...it was awesome!).

The girls picked out their ribbons and flowers for their tea party bonnets.

Then they played outside with dad and worked up a good appetite, while mom whipped up their hats with her glue gun and crafty eye.

Everything on the table was delish.
