Alice's Tea Cup

Today Mom and I took Ava into the City for a girl's day! Ava was excited to have time with just the girls and to leave the boys behind.

We took her to Alice's Tea Cup on the Upper West side for tea and an amazing lunch! After walking in, Ava was greeted with the choice of butterfly wings to wear and sparkles to be sprinkled on her.

They had a whole bookshelf of books (not all Alice books) for kids to take to their table and Ava chose an Alice pop-up book.

This is Ava's meal. A chocolate scone, apples and nutella, and chocolate mousse. Uhhhhhh, hello yum!

And this is our meal! Chocolate, pumpkin and plain scones, egg salad and chicken sandwiches, and homemade cake and cookies. And yes, we took home a leftover box.

After eating a few apples with nutella, Ava turned to me and said, "Momma, I'm sleepy, can I lay down?" And she slept for an hour!

After the nap, we headed to Central Park for a stroll. We headed to Belvedere Castle and climbed up to the spiral staircases to the top turret and enjoyed the amazing views of the park and the City. It's the highest point in Central Park, so the view is pretty spectacular!

Thanks Mom for an amazing day. I know Ava and I will remember it always!

So did all of you switch shoes halfway through the day, or just Ava?!
