American Girl Bistro

Saturday morning, Joey's mom surprised us girls with brunch at the American Girl Bistro. The kids were thrilled! We had never eaten there before and it was so cute to see the kids at the table with their dollies:) The food was delicious and it was just a really fun time. Thanks Nana!

Yum! Aubrey & Ella ordered blueberries pancakes, sausage and fresh fruit. They both licked their plates clean. Poor Kit, look at her eyeing Aubrey's food, wishing she was real and could have a bite:) Sorry Kit, you just get to watch us eat-whahahaha!


And Cali enjoyed her strawberry muffins and the Belgian waffles and bacon from her mom's plate:)


Here we are in front of the store. Thanks Joey for going across the street to take our picture! And just fyi, Joey and his Dad didn't dine with us, they went and shopped somewhere manly and then met us afterwards:)



And this picture I had to post because it cracks me up. Joe(Joey's Dad) thought when he walked away he was getting out of the picture. But here he is front and center! :) I'm still laughing. I think he makes a great American Girl model! Love ya Joe! :)



As soon as we got home, the girls were playing with their dolls and all the new doll clothes, shoes and jewelry their Nana & Tata spoiled them with. Ella has changed Ruthie's clothes about fifty times since that shopping trip.

Matching outfits, isn't that the cutest? The kids each got shirts to match their dolls shirts.



These two pictures are just adorable. Of course, my photographer husband Joey took them(my pics don't ever turn out as good!). Aubrey just loves her doll soooo much. Joey captured that love perfectly. . . . a girl and her doll. . . .so sweet!

What a great grandma and great memories. My girls have never gotten in to American dolls, but that picture of Aubrey with her doll turned out so cute that it makes me think maybe they should.

I always wanted an American Girl doll when I was growing up. Your girls are so lucky! I loved seeing the pictures of them enjoying themselves with their nana and at the Bistro. What fun!

You lucky people for having one of those. That is just plain cute. I love the colors and the atmosphere so much. Look how fun.

Joey is hilarious. He does make a cute American girl.

Happy day and thanks for sharing.

I loved the picture of Joe front and center of the picture! lol Quite the model, indeed. And I wish I'd had one of those dolls as a kid, they're very lucky to have them.

This is a dream of mine. However, I have not had a daughter into the dolls enough. I am crossing my fingers on the Emster.
So cute!

What a fun activity! I want a grandma like that! I didn't even know they had a restaurant.

That is so cute! What a fun outing! I've never heard of that place (probably because I have sons and not daughters).

Anayansi said...

Yeah for grandparents! They are the best!

Chrystina said...

We had a great time and I was really impressed with the meal. The girls were quite the ladies and everyone seemed to enjoy their brunch. Sorry girls we starved you at first no breakfast before we left the house. (Well, ok a sneak of a donut hole hee,heee). Thanks everyone for indulging me in my adventures with my granddaughters. Cali & Itty Bitty Baby seemed to enjoy their time together, Ruthie & Ella well let's just say they almost look like twins, and Aubrey & Kit what can I say best friends. The dolls looked great in their new outfits and we are glad they love playing with them perhaps Santa might make note of all the other mommies who haven't gotten one hmmmmmmm. Loved eating, loved shopping hey what is better than that oh yes, and that hunk of an American Girl front and center model well let's just say he's the best. He's going to get a kick out of this picture as well. Great photos son as usual you capture those moments so well. love Love LOVE you all and so happy to be able to have spent a glorious four days with you girls. Thank you for helping me pick out the special doll you know for a future surprise. love nana
