An American Girl Weekend Extravaganza, Part 2 - Birthday!

Julianna's birthday fell on a Monday this year, so Dad made it a long weekend and we took her to American Girl Place near DC.  (Maybe this birthday pilgrimage will become an annual tradition.  I'm thinking Boston or Chicago or Los Angeles (read: BEACH) next year.  Here are some pictures of our adventure.

All her treasures. She had saved $91 (which she told everyone about) to buy some of the stuff in the picture.
A good day.

Very fun! We have been going for birthdays almost every year since my oldest daughter was 5 (now turning 11) - the one year we didn't make it we had an AG themed party at home, which my daughter did a WONDERFUL job organizing! I will have to blog about that sometime! Anyway, we've been to NYC, LA, and Dallas, and we have reservations at Tyson's Corner in two weeks for this year's event. Moving to CT later in the year and hoping to hit Boston's next!
