It was a very pleasant day this past weekend and my daughter and I visited the folks in Tyler. My little one was very happy to see her grandparents, as usual.
My mother-in-law informed me ahead of time that the annual Rose Festival is on going that weekend. I haven't seen the Rose Festival in Tyler since I got here in Texas. That Saturday's event was the Rose Queen's Tea party. The Rose Queen 2014 and her court were gathered at the Rose Garden to meet and greet the public. So only the three of us went - mom, DD, and me.
There's tea served on one table. Bottled water and cookies on the other ones. The cookies tasted really good. Mom said that the Rose Festival theme varies every year. This year's is circus theme. So all the extravagant gowns are designed with the circus inspired in them.
