Skipping school for a good reason

We sprung the girls from school a couple of hours early for a special treat -- lunch with mama and daddy at the newly opened American Girl doll store.

They were pretty darn excited.

Lunch was cute, and then TubaDad did what all the other daddies in the store were doing: say yes a lot and pay a lot:photo (2)

In the end, Ro got a new doll (she still had her original Bitty Baby from years ago) and Ree (who had asked for a new doll for her birthday) got a stuffed dog and one of the book/kits. Both dolls spent some time in the salon, and also got their ears pierced.

Now Ree and Ro’s dolls look very similar (I think one is #25 and one is #42 or something like that) but there are subtle differences in hair and skin color. I told the girls it’s just like them – everyone will think the dolls are exactly the same, but the mamas will know differently.


  1. What a fun place! I've been to the one in Chicago. It's pretty dangerous having that place that close to you! Ha! I have a feeling Tuba Dad will be "paying a lot" quite often! Ha!

    1. The Chicago one is the first one we went to, many years ago with the fab tw.ins Michal and Kenna. That store was amazing

    I'm truly sad my daughter is far too old for this place. I am hoping my niece will want to go and I'll get to go with her! lol Looks like a lot of fun! :)


  4. How fun!! What a great place to enjoy family time! AG dolls are so beautiful! We've never been to a store but maybe now we'll visit some year? ;o) love how you talked about the girls and their dolls! Oh bother...2 more little ones for me to tell apart! You know how well I do with your sweeties! Oye!

    1. It's ok, the girls have been mixing them up too. Last night Ree did a new hairstyle on one of the dolls, and Ro was all happy thinking her doll had gotten a makeover, when actually hers was "sleeping" on the bed. Ooops.
