Let them eat cake.

Hannah (the Queen) and Ainsley (the Princess) decided to host a tea party for the cats and dogs.

That didn't work out as well as they'd planned, so they settled for the next best thing - a brother. Who is Not A Prince, by the way.

They talked him into joining them by offering him a drink of tea (water) sweetened with sugar (chocolate chips). He fell for it.

Then they got distracted talking about Many Important Things.

Gray tried to understand, but he was getting bored, so he started looking for a way out.

The Queen noticed this and fed him a tea cake (graham cracker). He bit. (Heh.)

And then the talk got boring again. Look at the poor kid trying to keep his eyes open.

There they go ... drooping ...

He just wants a way out. "Maybe if I roll off the chair and onto the porch and keep rolling, they'll laugh so hard they won't offer me anything else and I can get away."

Which is what he did. Rolled all the way over to me and we got the well house swept out and ready for winter - can't have the well pipes freezing and breaking. That is what we commoners do while the royalty eats cake.

Poor Grayson! That's a funny story especially with the pictures. :) The life with 2 older sisters is not for the faint of heart!
