We had a blast shopping in stores such as Toys R Us, Disney Store, M&M Store, The Hershey Store, Fao Schwarz, and many others!
Visiting the two islands, one housing the Statue of Liberty, is something every single American should do. It truly takes your breath away. The museums, housing room after room of immigrant memorabilia, allowed a true glimce into the sacrifice people made just to be in the Land of Opportunity.
After standing in a three hour line and fighting through a crowd of 50 people once in the store, we finally got our bag of coveted cupcakes and cookies. Worth three hours? I don't know about all that, but the icing sure did taste UNBELIEVABLY delicious. Mmmmmmmm....
The American Girl Store fuflilled all of Chloe's little girl fantasies and then some. Laney got pampered in their day salon and Julie joined our family. There was a bakery and even a place for your dolls to "hang out" while you used the 'facilities'.
Yes, I spent way too much money and I should be smacked for spending money at all for a doll to get a manicure.
But one look at the joy on Chloe's face made it all worth it. We WILL be repeat visitors...
