a tea party picnic


it was a beautiful day and layla decided we "needed" to have a picnic...

she thought it should be a tea party picnic so we made lemon tea, sliced apples, and some blueberry muffins. the muffins were delicious! you can find the recipe here and they are quite healthy with whole wheat flour, oat bran, wheat germ, walnuts, banana, and blueberries.... also, the recipe calls for buttermilk but we didn't have that on hand so we mixed a tablespoon of white vinegar with one cup of milk and let it stand five minutes and voila!



the ducks decided they wanted to join us... one of the great things about having ducks is that it's like living in a duck park... you throw a little muffin out and they come a quacking...
of course one of the bad things about having ducks is also that it's like living in a duck park... very messy...

little sister was there too... enjoying being out in the sunshine, she loves picnics :)

Wow!! Amazing tea party picnic. Have to organize a picnic party for my little niece and nephew. Planning to arrange it at Venues in NYC. Looking for some great ideas for the day. Liked your preparations too. Will use some of your ideas.
