|On the balcony in the morning.|
|Once we got ready for the day, we went down|
to the lounge for breakfast.
|There was lots of cereal to choose from.|
|The breakfast was very good.|
|All throughout the day, my Mom had trouble getting good|
pictures of Gemma
|On the elevator.|
|The girls side of the suite was very messy.|
|…fighting over snacks! (Thanks Auntie Coley!)|
|It was a very beautiful morning and I took a lot of pictures.|
|You can see a ferry, the harbor, and the Olympic mountains.|
|You can see Mt. Rainer faintly in the distance.|
|In the lobby not only cold you get a tiny drink|
of water, you could also get a tiny smoothie!
Before we left the hotel, we went downstairs to explore then left to go to the American Girl doll store!!!
|My Mom got them to stand still for a picture before...|
|…they wanted to go inside!|
|There were so many doll things in the store!|
|Eliot in front of her doll's (Julie) case.|
|I got a doll! I had been saving up but I only managed to save|
up half of the money for it. Thankfully, my Dad said he would
pay the other half for me!
|Here she is!|
|Eliot in front of more Julie things.|
|There were ladies who could do your doll's hair at the doll salon.|
We didn't get any of our doll's hair done but we got lots of good tips from the ladies!
|The bubble bath was looked pretty cool.|
|Gemma's, doll Rebecca.|
|Our cousin Sophie's doll, Samantha.|
|I thought Eliot looked like Kit Kittredge.|
She didn't think so.
|Eliot thought she would get Julie's ears pierced!|
(This is the before picture.)
|Gemma walked right up to one of the ladies|
and asked if she could her dolls ears pierced too...
|Waiting to buy the merchandise.|
|Finally, we got to play with the things we got.|
|I think Celeste liked the American Girl doll store.|
|Mariposa got glasses for Saige.|
|A picture with the girl of the year, Grace.|
|We all got a picture with our dolls in front|
of the store before going back inside to get a snack at the cafe.
|This was a room that you could reserve for parties.|
|Once we went into the cafe, my Mom tried to get a good picture|
of Gemma and Dad...
|Finally the snacks came!|
|We got yogurt, fruit kabobs, and really|
good blueberry muffins.
|Eliot didn't want to eat the tops of her muffins:)|
|We had to try three times (once again, because of Gemma)|
to get a good picture.
|My doll (I named her Sadie but 'Tiny Bunny '|
Is her nickname).
|A picture of all of us right outside the store.|
The American Girl doll store was very fun and once we left, we had a day and a half of fun behind us and five hours of driving in front of us.
|Driving away from Seattle.|
|Julie is sitting in her new seat that Eliot got her.|
|We went to Burger King for a late lunch (by looking at the picture,|
you can probably guess we were very tired by then).
After lunch, we drove for two and a half hours before finally getting to our Aunt and Uncle's at six o'clock to pick up James and Sedric.
We had a lot of fun in Seattle and at the American Girl doll store and we all hope we can go again!
