England part eight- Tea with Granny

After returning home really late the night before from London we all needed some time to rest. We all slept in a bit and had a quiet morning at home. There was still fun planned for the afternoon however. Granny was taking us all to tea!
We had reservations at the Barnsley House in the Cotswolds for afternoon tea. The girls loved dressing up and using their best manners. There was a Pimm's tea special that Alex had to try. His Pimm's was delicious! The scones were so delicious...even if Lily & Gemma were not big fans yet!
After our fill of sandwiches, scones and sweet treats we explored the grounds of the hotel and spa. I could get used to this kind of life!
Grampy and his two best girls posing in the garden.
Of course Grampy gets silly and does some tickles.
Ok one final serious one!
Two best sisters loved exploring and playing hide and seek among the flowers and trees.
They did their secret sister hand shake and song.
I mean truly how picturesque is this place!
On our way home we stopped by the quaint town of Bibury. The seventeenth century weavers cottages and and meadow are very popular with tour groups and movie films.
I can see why! We crossed the bridge and played several rounds of Pooh sticks.
These cottages and village are so sweet. The pictures just don't do it justice.

If you want in on the secret sister hand shake you can watch this video clip.
