Birthday Girl | Sweet Sixteen

While we were in London, we celebrated my daughter's sixteenth birthday.

[Last year, she was in France for her birthday. I sense a pattern now which begs the question - where will she be next June?]

She dislikes it when I take her photo, but I managed to sneak one in.
Lovely

Remembering her as a baby:

As a Little girl:
Running With Glee

And some silly moments:
Slapped Silly

Oh, how fast they grow up!

On her birthday, we enjoyed afternoon tea at the Wallace Collection's Restaurant:


I learned that afternoon tea for one consists of:
A Pot of Tea (of course)
4 finger sandwiches: Smoked salmon, Cucumber, Ham and Cheese and Egg Salad
3 cakes: a filled cream puff, a filled sponged cake and a delicate tiramisu-like cake
1 scone with clotted cream and jam (clotted cream is like butter)

It was a nice, elegant way to celebrate this milestone.

She has grown into a beautiful young lady with such an engaging smile. Happy Birthday wishes - and I like her celebration style. Perhaps Italy next June?

Happy be-lated birthday to her! She is such a beautiful girl. And I think she should let you take her photo more often. ;) They just grow up way too quickly!

She is just beautiful Shirley! What a wonderful way to spend a birthday. They do grow up quickly...I'm learning that for sure!
