Our Arizona adventure finally reached its pinnacle when we arrived in "the middle of nowhere" Arizona, home of Steve and Heather Pickle, and their children, Elissa and Seth. We all met a couple years ago in Illinois when they came to visit our church, and we've enjoyed staying in touch ever since. Visiting their corner of the world seemed a natural part of our trip to Arizona, and their generous hospitality made us feel right at home.
Since both our families enjoy tea parties, the girls couldn't wait to organize and execute a grand event. The high tea was scheduled for the supper hour so even the men folk could be present, and Mr. Pickle and I were happy to help them consume the comestibles. The girls (Elissa, Lily, and Gretel) prepared all the food you see here in the afternoon, and they were still able to smile for the camera at dinnertime (that was one busy kitchen).
I have to include a close up of the table so you can appreciate all the wonderful foods. We've witnessed a few Pickle teas via Heather's and Elissa's blogs, and we knew this was not going to be a disappointing affair. And no, we did not consume all the food.
Later, we realized that we ate English food on Cinco de Mayo instead of our traditional Mexican fare. Oh well, maybe we'll have to eat burritos on Guy Fawkes Day instead. Thanks for visiting!
