Following our inner stars

For the past year, Molly and Leah have been asking to visit the American Girl store. So, I surprised them and we followed our inner stars into the northern Virginia DC suburbs, along with Matilda and Ellie.

The store is two levels of dolls, doll cloths, girl clothes, and lots of accessories. Molly found a cute hat to model.

I never thought I'd be taking my child’s picture in a bathroom, but I had to show how well thought out the store is. The bathrooms all included doll holders, in the stalls and by the sinks.

There are doll displays all over the store. Leah found a perfect place for Rose to have a chat with a new friend, Grace.

Apparently Grace is a friendly girl because Molly McIntire needed to meet the new Girl of the Year too.

While there, we also had lunch at the Bistro, complete with seats for the dolls at the table.

Each doll was presented with a tea cup and saucer, because dolls get thirsty at lunchtime too.

Molly did a nice job of documenting that Stacie, Julie, and I enjoyed the day as well.

After lunch, Molly McIntire and Rose were treated to an afternoon at the doll salon. I was happy that someone else was brushing the dolls’ hair.

The dolls also had a nice spa treatment, including a cleaning, massage, and nice smelling powder.

Leah chose a fishtail braid for Rose, who sat very patiently to have her hair braided.

New hairstyles, a spa cleaning, and new clothes. I’d say Rose and Molly McIntire had a great day. Oh, Molly and Leah loved the day too!
