Over the weekend my Mom treated all her girls to the bunny brunch + an amazing shop trip at the American Girl store in LA. It called for an early morning wake-up call but it was worth seeing the girls so excited. My nieces had been to the store before but it was a first for Payton. She got a doll for her birthday at one of the holiday pop-up shops so going to the mecca was outstandingly overwhelming. We arrived to the store quarter to nine. The store was quiet, every doll in place, every outfit perfectly hung. We made our way upstairs to the café and were seated at table one. They quickly helped the girls get their dolls in their seats and brought over the signature cinnamon rolls. They were tasty, but doll sized. Since it was a brunch we had four options to choose from: blueberry pancakes, buttermilk pancakes, french toast or scrambled eggs with potatoes. Since there were six of us I nibbled on everything. Everything was good, my sister said that their lunch menu was more impressive. As we were done eating it was our turn to take a picture with the Easter bunny. Each girl got an individual photo with the bunny and then we had the option to take a group photo with our own camera. When we returned to the table dessert was served. It was the signature flower pot chocolate mousse and a bunny sugar cookie. Both were very good but rich. The meal experience was memorable but the girls could not wait to start shopping. My original plan was to only let her doll get her hair done and ears pierced plus an outfit. That plan quickly changed once her cousins were getting a new doll. We now have a new member of our family, Lea, the doll of the year. I couldn’t say no to this doll, she’s adorable and with our upcoming family trip to Hawaii in the Fall she was the perfect addition with her island flair.
After the doll shopping we made our way to Nordstrom where Grandma spoiled them even further. Matching dresses, mini Easter stuffed animals, sandals, etc. If it couldn’t get any sweeter we ended at Dylan’s Candy Bar where there was no limit. It was a magical day for the girls. They truly have one amazing Grandma!
