girls weekend, day two

we started off our day by swimming in the hotel pool! then, we leisurely got ready and went to the Mall of America again!

And, who did we see right away? DORA!!!!








Avery was too shy to go up to Dora, but Liv LOVED seeing her!


We had noon reservations at the American Girl Bistro. It has so many fun colors, and it's just so girly!

They have little booster chairs for the dolls to sit on so they can be a part of the experience too!

Here is Avery and Felicity!


and Livie and Molly...(look at the cute little menus that the dolls have to order off of!)


Liv was a little spitfire during our lunch...


the chef came out and said happy birthday to Avery, and showed us his little doll, AJ. All of the staff were so very nice and would stop by and tell Avery happy birthday!


Avery dined on hot dogs and french fries, and Felicity had tea.


Livie had fries and chicken strips, and Molly had pink lemonade!


Here is our table! What a fun lunch!


Then, onto Nickelodeon Universe! We went on lots of rides, and the girls had such a blast!









This ride was our favorite....watch the girls faces on these next photos...their looks of pure enjoyment are just priceless!












Whew....

after a fun filled day at the Mall, we went back to the hotel for naps, pool time, and then a late dinner at Culvers!

Saturday was the day we had to leave. We swam (again) in the morning, and then were on the road by 11:30. We did stop on the way home to get gas in a little town that now has a special place in our hearts....


What a fun girls weekend we had! We hope to do it every year!!!

Great pictures!!! I know I keep saying this, but the older the girls get the more they look alike!

I can't get over how much Olivia and Avery look like each other! Wow!

Gorgeous girls! I am so proud that one wasn't too scared to go see Dora because I might have been! Glad you all had fun!

Thos are wonderful pictures! May I ask what camera you have? I'm looking for a small camera (I have a Nikon D40 but its a pain to carry it around with me everywhere..haha)

I got so excited when I learned that the American Girl Bistro was at the Mall of America! We live in Sioux Falls, SD so its a 3.5 to 4 hr drive away. That would be a great place to go for a birthday! My daughter is only 1 so we have a ways to go until we can do that but I'll definitely keep that in mind. How fun!

Oh how funny :) I was holding out hope that it was possible for a smaller camera to take such good pictures haha. I do love the D40 though, it is indeed a great camera! It's great to meet another South Dakotan!!
