Still catching up from our Dallas trip. While in town for Brad's wedding, we visited the American Girl store. Steve and Terri had planned a special gift for Lainey and so we ventured out to tour the store and pick up her surprise.
The mecca.....and yes, it was all it should have been and more.
How cute is she? I can only imagine her thoughts....."All for me. All these babies for me."
Upon entering, Jack took a moment to check it all out, walked briskly over to me and said, "Mom, dis place got trains?!"
Behold the doll salon. Yes, those are grown women cutting dolls' hair per request and most often to mimic the child receiving the doll. Upstairs houses a bistro in which your dolls are seated in their own high chairs. I bet they'll let you order for them, too!
Lainey cruised around and loved it all.
This might surprise you, but Jack and Lainey did not agree on who should push the double stroller.
I'll give you one guess who won.
Mae Mae helped......there was a lot to see! They didn't know which direction to turn.
The intended gifts and final choices.......twins......aka......Jack and Lainey. Mae Mae wanted to get them for Lainey because they look so much like her and her "twin". I think they do!
Carter and Maci.
We left with the twins and Britney treated Lainey to a kitty for her dolls. I grabbed a picnic set for two, which will be saved for Christmas. Really cute stuff. A shopper could lose her mind with such sweetness.
On our way out. Babies in tow.
Two of the three bags we left with.
Thank you, Jack. Such a helpful punk when he wants to be.
Lunch shortly after with Pa, Britney and kids.
Look who was lucky enough to join us. Lainey thought they were adorable.
We loved every minute. Although every trip to Dallas won't include a visit to American Girl, hopefully we'll see more of it in our future. Such a very special place for little ones.
