The main reason for our girls trip to the Mall of America was to visit the American Girl store. Rory received her own American Girl doll for her 5th birthday, and she had been looking forward to our trip for months. I must admit, I was pretty excited, too! It was such an experience taking her there, and I can’t say it enough times; it is something I will never forget. I didn’t get any time to really take any images of us shopping in the store, but while we were there, Juliet got her ears pierced at the salon. That was important to Rory because she also got her ears pierced that day. And Rory even picked out matching pajamas for her and Juliet! Of course, we had to have lunch in the bistro, and it was an extra special treat for the girls. They loved pouring (and drinking) the dolls their pink lemonade with the mini pitcher and tea cups. At the end, the waitresses brought Rory a special little treat and sang her happy birthday! So much fun! And so much pink!
