Mad Tea Party --a love story


They were just kids. He in his top hat she in her bunny ears.


Racing towards one another on their brand new, red tricycles. They could see each other from a distance...which one would let the other go by? Stubborn. Neither moved. All of a sudden a crash, tires spinning and two children picking themselves up.

They both stood up, dizzy...looking around they found themselves in a brand new world.


Bright colors and cookie trees. They looked at one another and about to say, "why didn't you move," when a pair of rabbits hopped over and told them to follow. Both children giggled with delight...

Following the rabbits they passed a tortoise who said its name was Eloise and asked if she could follow. "well," the children said, "we don't know where we're going, but of course you may."


They turned down a path that was paved with brightly colored marbles.

In the distance they could hear laughter and music.


The little girl said, "oh my, that is my favorite song...my mommy taught me to play it on the piano." The little boy said, "no, that's my favorite song and I know how to play it on the piano too."

Before an argument could ensue, they came to a beautiful, grassy green clearing.
A quilt was spread out and amazing cakes, candies and pies were set before them. As they sat down, out of the woods came a chipmunk, raccoon, down flew a great horned owl and doves. The children looked at one another in wonderment.


They wanted to stay here forever.
And, for more tea party fun....visit
