Oregon Tea Garden

For the kids' birthdays we host a family dinner, complete with a special cake, at our house. I'm not much into the traditional kid birthday party that includes a bunch of kids, themed paper products games, games that usually end in tears, and lots of noise. Some of you may find this surprising, knowing how much I do love to be the hostess. As an alternative I plan a special outing for the birthday kid and one or two of their friends. This year Emma invited Marli and Riley to join us at the Oregon Tea Garden. Since I just celebrated my birthday, I invited a few friends too.

The kids had a good time, despite the fact that they rejected most of the traditional tea party food. They devoured all of the gummy worms and peanut M&Ms. We all enjoyed the dress up items.
