Teatime in Cincinnati: The Netherlands Hotel

During our time in Cincinnati, we took tea at the Netherlands Hotel! It is an old hotel from the 1930's ~ It was very pretty inside. Decorated in original art deco.  All ready for tea!  Our very sweet server, Natasha!  The Sandwiches and Savories  Sweet Breads Some of the Desserts  Natasha, made special take-home treats in honor of Grandma's End of Chemo-Treatment!  It was a fun day! I hope to take tea there again! 

Ohio Roadtrip Celebrating Grandma's End-of-Chemo-Treatment

This past weekend, we went to Ohio with my grandma, my mom, some aunts, and a few girl cousins. It was an outing to celebrate Grandma's end-of-chemo-treatment. We went to Cincinnati, Ohio to visit the Princess Diana Exhibit. Some drove from Iowa, some flew from North Dakota, and some drove from Tennessee. Here are a few photos of our fun-filled trip!  This is the Iowa group (minus my mom who is taking the picture).  Aunt Karen on the right was our designated driver - we nicknamed her Navigator.       From Des Moines it was a 12 hour drive!  Mileage sign for Kentucky! Getting closer!!  Arrival in Cincinnati! Yeah! We made it!!  Ohio river! We walked over this bridge and had fun saying that we walked from Ohio to Kentucky!   First night, we enjoyed Tea, Cake, and Chocolates! (My mom made an English Walnut Cake ~ ooh so good!)  Decked Grandma out with pink and crowned her "Queen Mum!"  Next Day... Princess Diana Exh
