Summertime with American Girl

Last week, we spent a day at the American Girl store at Stanford Shopping Center. They had three events that day. We were lucky to experience two of them. Both events we attended were free, and age-appropriate for both girls. There are so many events going on this summer. Check your local store to see what activities will be happening in your area.

American Girl stores, a fun Summer destination

When I was a little girl, I loved playing with dolls. I would spend the summer with my grandparents. My grandmother spent hours making doll clothes for many of my friends. American Girl had just started, and several catalogs had made their way around the school yard. I couldn’t wait to order my very own doll.

The tent, part three. And where I question my sanity

A few years ago, I wrote about coming home from a date night to an atrocious play tent in my living room. Grandma thought it was a great idea, and of course Emma loved it. She played with that tent for months. I was so happy when it finally fell apart.

However, another tent soon sprouted up. This time, it wasn’t so bad. But, I was still ecstatic to see it go. continued
