A Girls Weekend and a Tea Party

Last weekend Trevon went on a Father/son campout with his brothers and dad. So us girls took the opportunity to have a girls weekend.

It started out with ice cream at Maceys. Because their soft serve ice cream is the best price for a twist cone.

Then a trip to the dollar store to get some tissue paper. We ended up leaving with these little water toys too. The dollar store can be a dangerous place for money.

When the girls went to bed, I started on a little project for our Francis tea party.  

It took us a few tries to figure it out but once we got the hang of it, all this tissue paper turned into these awesome puff balls and flowers. 

They made a perfect center piece for our tables at the tea party. They are cheap and easy to make, and they are super girly. I ended up keeping them too so that I can possibly use them for birthday parties and other things. 

And now for some tea party pictures:

We didn't get any pictures of the girls and I all together so we tried to take some selfies before changing out of our party dresses. It didn't go great but here's a little idea.

 J's attempt at taking a picture of me. She'll get the hang of it.

This tea party is a fun little tradition we started last year with all the ladies in my family.  We love being together and we look for any excuse to do that with some really good food.  To see last year's tea party go Here.

All this made for a really fun girls weekend, but we did miss our Daddy and we were all excited to have him home for Father's day. 

Are you close to any extended family?

Do you have any fun family traditions?
