Today is Zoe’s 8th birthday. She re-discovered her American Girl Doll around Christmas so for her special day I took her to Chicago to the store. Bobby and his daughter went with us and we stayed overnight in Chicago since it was a 5 1/2hour drive one way. The girls were amazingly well behaved during the long car ride. We stocked up on dolls, coloring books and crayons before the trip and we took the laptop for them to watch movies on. Naturally the excitement was too much for 2 little girls and they slept all of 5 hours last night.
I could have dropped a small fortune in that store easily. There were so many cute outfits for Nicki and of course the matching ones for Zoe. She ended up getting Nicki a bathing suit, an ice skating outfit (with ice skates), a party dress, jammies, a summer outfit(with flip flops) and a dog named Honey. I also bought a pink American Girl t-shirt for Zoe since all the other gifts were for Nicki. Oh, and she she got Nicki’s hair done at the doll hair salon. That’s right. I said the doll hair salon.
I wish we had a store closer than Chicago, but I’m kind of glad we don’t. Nicki & zoe would look great, but we’d probably be homeless. 😉
