Last week we traveled a couple of hours away to visit our son and daughter-in-law at their new home. It just so happens that they are within 50 miles of an American Girl Place!
The place was HUGE! Dolls in beautiful displays greeted us around every corner.

Marie Grace and Cecile...I want the wash stand!
Sophie and I both loved Rebecca best, but choosing a favorite was so hard! I do believe she will be the next AG to join our collection.
So many dolls...
Caroline and her dining table set...so pretty.
Sophie loves ballet, and had no inhibitions about striking a pose with the Isabelle cutout.
Here we are, in front of Kit and Ruthie's display. I've always liked Kit, but I never really thought that much about Ruthie until I saw her in person. My, she is beautiful! And yes, we brought along our Nellie doll to share in the adventure.
The mall which housed the American Girl Place also has another one of our favorite stores nearby...the Disney Store! This is the only picture I got with my daughter-in-law--she is almost full term and didn't want her picture taken. I think she is beautiful!
Sophie wasted no time in finding the Princess dresses.
My girls, goofing around!
Be still my heart...Disney now offers replicas of the dolls from their "It's a Small World" ride. It took all my willpower not to buy one. (This time!)
And they sing! Press their tummies, and they sing the iconic song in their sweet little accents. Sophie and I both loved the little Japanese girl best.
One of my favorite things about the Disney store is how it is decorated. They spare no expense, and no detail is left out. This store is a feast for the eyes.
How cute is this!?!
One last shot in front of the mall entrance to the store before heading home. We were good girls and didn't buy anything. Of course, had money not been an issue, it would have taken a moving van to bring everything home we would have liked to have purchased! So this time we just window shopped. But next time--and there WILL be a next time--money will be spent. But how, oh how, will we ever decide on what?!?
