We were so hungry that I forgot to take a picture when the tower was full...oops!

Afternoon tea.

This week was full of school work and studying, but we still fit in some time for fun on the weekend. We found this local pub called the Hereford Arms that we've decided will now be our home base. Along the back wall of the pub is all Alfred Hitchcock movie artwork shown above. On Saturday, Ava and I visited Kensington Palace where we took a tour of the inside and got a chance to see some of the royal ladies' dresses. The gowns were all stunning, but I especially loved the Princess Diana section. It was interesting to read where she wore the dresses and what she looked like in them. Ava and I agreed that the dresses on the mannequins were nowhere near as beautiful as the photos of Princess Diana actually wearing them. After our Kensington Palace tour, we had our first afternoon tea at the Orangery overlooking the palace. We sat outside eating finger sandwiches, scones and pastries, sipping tea out of beautiful tea cups. It was such a good day, and I can't wait to go back.
Hope you enjoyed your weekend!
