Afternoon Tea and First Day of 1st Grade

Today is hardly even over and it has been packed with fun stuff. Today was the first day of school for elementary school kids, which means...Aiden started 1st Grade today!! WHOOOO So far he said it was so much fun and he can't wait to go back tomorrow. I was so happy to hear that, he made new friends, saw some old ones and likes his teacher. What more could I ask for?Now you might be wondering about Audrey. This is the most disorganized school ever. The kindergartners don't start on the first day, or the second,or third day. They start in groups of 5 or 6, starting on Thursday. Audrey's day is on Friday. But then she has Monday off, so really she "starts" school on Tuesday the 9th...8 days after Aiden. Le Sigh (thanks for the new saying Lauren!) So until then she gets to hang out with me and my mom. Which she loves!

The other so much fun part of the day was our trip to Waikiki. Mom, Audrey and I trekked the 7 miles down to the Moana Surfrider Hotel, you can see it here. It was beautiful!!! I think S and I are going to stay this week when we go on our little getaway for the night.

The view was amazing, when is looking out at Waikiki beach not amazing? The food was super tasty and just the right amount. Tiny little finger sandwiches, scones with clotted cream and lemon curd, green tea cream puff, mango layer cake and salted chocolate cookies! The tea was also fantastic. They bring out a tray of 8 different flavors and you get to smell them and pick which one you would like to try and then they bring it out in a cute silver tea pot. To end the meal you get a scoop of sorbet. Audrey had mango and mom and I got green tea/lemon grass. So refreshing and delicious. This was must do again. Who wants to come visit and have tea?

So who is coming to visit so we can go have tea??
