Ivy's Birthday

Spring Break, 2008

Specifically, sometime on Tuesday.

Ivy's mom, little sister, and Jyan picked me up for a "schindig" (read "tea party") at Ivy's in San Marcos for her birthday.

The following are actual pictures of the event.

Voltron [correction, Wing Zero], acting as guard on the gift bags.

The spread.

The menu.

The (exhaustive) tea party rules. Pinkies are not, in fact, to be raised. Wooster would be heartbroken.

Party time!

"Oh, Ms. Niki, you do make the wittiest remarks!"

"One morning, I shot an elephant in my pajamas. How he got in my pajama's I'll never know."

Tea Central

"Tea! That's all I needed! Good cup of tea! Super-heated infusion of free-radicals and tannin, just the thing for healing the synapses."

Sam, drawing me a picture. Takes after her sister, she does.

No tea party is complete without a rat.
