This was Maia's (and Elizabeth's) first time to the American Girl Place. Maia was in awe. So much that there wasn't even the barest hint of the gimmies. I'm very proud of her. Or thankful to AGP for stunning her. Either way works.
Maia picked out one outfit, a pair of glasses and a hairbrush for her doll. We also got her an American Girl backpack so she could carry Elizabeth in that instead of having to spend the rest of the day toting her around in her arms.
Elizabeth was going to have her hair done at the hair salon but after waiting for 10 minutes in line we found out that after checking in it would be a 3.5 hour wait!! !!!!
!!!! <----Which leads us to why we bought Elizabeth an 'official' hairbrush.
And why, later, in the car I played beauty stylist.
