Chinese Tea Tasting and a Family Picture

This past weekend provided us a great mix of relaxation and productivity. The weeds are gone, the closet is cleaned(mostly) and that dip in the couch-you know the one- looks just a bit lower. However, as fun as grocery shopping and weed pulling were, the highlight of the weekend was the Chinese Tea Tasting we went to on Saturday. What a great cultural and learning experience! I was stunned to learn of all the different varieties and health benefits to be had from drinking tea, and not to mention impressed with the preparation and delivery of it all. Whew! And to think I considered Lipton my queen bee of tea! All in all, it was a great time learning about the Chinese tradition of drinking tea, and nice to see it alive and well here in Raleigh, NC. You can try for yourself on the last Saturday of every month, or see their website for more information Chris and I will definitely go back! On another note, our surprisingly sunny Sunday afternoon gave us this silly family picture. I'm not sure what Piper's doing, but it's good for a Monday morning laugh :)I promise he has an adorable face behind all that hair!
