Really, this is the end! I take way too many pics!
After the Brooklyn Bridge, my brother took all the boys home and the girls were off for an adventure at the American Girl store.
So back up to 5th Ave
Caroline knew exactly what she wanted and where to find it and had it done within seconds. Emi (having an early birthday gift card from Grandma Newman), just kind of had to soak it all in. She was in heaven. She finally decided on this cute little green pull out bed for her doll and a couple outfits. How was I going to put this in my carry-on luggage, but oh well. Once again, the mega-bag they gave us was awesome! It's all about the bag.
Again, so nice to be with locals. Kathryn introduced us to the personal shopper room. It was free to anyone, but no one else was there. It had couches and they rang you up in there. So very fun AND they give you a little AG bag for your doll. My kind of shopping.
Off to the cafe. This is our second time, but Emi was quite young the first time and truly appreciates it now. The funny thing, there is always these big, manly waiters there serving these little girls. They must pay well.
Drinking our Shirley Temples.
Sunday morning, we jaunted over to the NY Botanical Gardens, on the last day of their Monet garden exhibit. So beautiful.
A great time! Then off to church and hanging out at home.
Thanks to Mark and Kathryn and the bunch for a fabulous few days. We couldn't have done it without you.
Bye, bye NYC!
