On March 7th we finally celebrated Meredith's 6th birthday! It was two months of waiting, hoping, excitement and anticipation to go to The American Girl Place!!! The girls all took a trip to The Grove in Los Angeles so we could enjoy the store and dinner. Ryan and Trevor visited the La Brea Tar Pits- the "boy" thing to do! Trevor is convinced that he wants to be a paleontologist when he grows up.
The Grove- such a cute shopping center!
Mackenzie and Madalyn never wanted an American Girl doll, but they did enjoy the books. They were, however, so excited to share this experience with Meredith!
Meredith picking out the girls that looks just like her (but without the freckles!)
Meredith so happy with the purchase! He named her doll Tatum Claire Jones- the name she was going to have if we did not name her Meredith Claire.
That evening we had dinner at the American Girl Cafe'
Grandma Wright came along and bought Tatum three outfits so she can be taken home in style! We loved having Grandma Wright with us...she is Meredith's second favorite (next to Grandpa Wright)! Sorry...but we all know it is true...
Ryan and Trevor joined us for dinner. Trevor kept his hood on to hide himself when he first entered the store- it was so funny! Once he saw another "teenage boy" there he became more comfortable!
The Cafe' is so cute!! The food was really good too!
There was a box of conversation starters on the table...the kids loved the questions!
Tatum had her own high chair and snack!
Here is dessert!
This was an unforgettable birthday for our sweet Meredith whom we just adore and love more than words can express!
