Christmas this year brought us a new member of our ‘doll’ family. Lulu really wanted Julie – but I think what she wanted was all that long blonde hair! What I love about Julie – is she reminds me of growing up in the 70’s (yes, I remember the 1970s well!)
We are also lucky enough to have an American Girl Store about an hour away. It was time to make our first trip. Lulu and I made a Mom and Me day out of this. (iPhone photos ahead… sorry!)
We met friends and spent what felt like the entire day there. First thing up was find Julie’s clan:
Then we went to drop Julie off for her ear piercing at the Doll Hair Studio:
Julie with her new ‘earrings’:
and then we SHOPPED:
Unfortunately, we did not have dining reservations so we headed into the mall to do a lunch of the girls’ choice:
We decided that the new MacDonald’s Happy Meal french fry size is even too small for Julie!
I am only sorry that we waited so many years to go here. Next time (when the girls have refilled their piggy banks) we will have dining reservations for sure!
