Happy Birthday Missy Miss!

Well, I am officially old...my daughter turned 7 a few weeks back. Instead of having a party with her friends, this year she chose a weekend trip to New York City to go to the American Girl store.

It was a BLAST!! The hotel we stayed in was only a few blocks from American Girl and Times Square. We went shopping at American Girl and also had afternoon tea there, which was delicious and such fun! We also had her doll's hair done and ears pierced while we were then.

We did a lot of walking around. My husband and I grew up in NYC and Long Island, but my kids have only lived out here in the country. They love visiting NYC. Our hotel had a revolving door, which completely entertained the kids.

Here are some pics from out trip!

I completely LOVE cupcakes. I have had cupcakes from Crumbs once before and they were delicious! I was thrilled to learn our hotel was only a few doors down from a Crumbs. We got a mini-cupcake sampler, which was a great way to try a lot of the flavors.

Here is MissyMiss and her doll at tea. They brought a little doll chair to the table and her doll even got her own cup and saucer. Bubby found a little boy doll that we got for him, which he calls "American Girl boy doll".












It was such a fun and memorable trip!

Sounds like an awesome birthday! Happy birthday to your 7 year old.

I love to see adventures with girls 'cause I have two boys and I can't imagine a trip to American Girl in my future LOL.

Love this! I have heard great things about the American Girl place. Unfortunately, boys are only interested in rocks, dirt, and dinosaurs!

Happy Birthday!!

awww how fun! I keep telling my husband that I want to live in NYC! I am sure he would make a lot of money for what he does, however I know it cost a lot to live there! I may just have to visit a lot so it feels like I live there! LOL

When I was younger my mom took me to the same American Girl place and I loved it! That's awesome that she's in to that type of stuff and had such a great birthday! I will forever remember that day my mom and I went there :)

what a great trip! We went to the AG Place in Chicago a few times. It was so hard this week to help my daughter pack up her dolls to ready them for the move to her new appartment after her wedding in 2 weeks. It is so bitter sweet to see them grow up! Savor every moment.
