Recently cousin Sara turned seven years old.
She and Oma planned a special trip to the American Girl Place
downtown Chicago and invited Little A and I to go along!
Little A was excitedly looking forward to our trip and frequently
asked, “When are we going to the American dollhouse?”
This was our first time to the Disneyworld of Dolls!
It was quite something to see the enormity of a store
selling not only dolls but girl and doll matching clothes,
doll hair salon, doll hospital, a café with special seats
for the dolls, and every doll accessory imaginable.
Quite a concept which has caught the eye of most every girl in America.
We had a great time.
Little A was “all eyes” from the moment we entered the store.
I loved staying downtown Chicago.
I lived downtown during a semester in college.
I loved it then too.
What a different lifestyle it would be to raise a family
in a city such as Chicago vs. the rural woods of Wisconsin.
I think I could enjoy the Chicago city living. . . but Mr. E would have
none of that and I wouldn’t change him for the world.
The rainy, windy, cold, cloudy weekend didn’t damper our
spirits. The birthday girl received a rain-check on the carriage ride
with Oma since it was even too nasty outside for the horses.
Thanks for including us in your special weekend, Sara.
We made fun girl-time memories!
