What a fun day you had. Your daughter and grands are so adorable just like their Grams.
I got one of my grands Julie for Christmas. She is my favorite. Now another one wants the new one in your picture. I am going to Denver to see her in 10 days and we may go to their new store.

Sue (Someone's Mom) said...

Oh, how wonderful for you all. All of your girls are gorgeous...but, it is easy to know why...they have great genes, look at you!

I love American Girl Dolls. By the time they became popular (and had a few choices that were affordable, my daughter was past wanting dolls). I really want a grandgirl one of these days to buy one for. Somehow my little grandboys probably would like one much!

Vee said...

Oh what fun you all had! Nothing much more fun than a road trip with your favorite girls. I love American Girl dolls myself so I'm very impressed with a gal saving her money to buy one. Now I hope that you get to rest a must be exhausted.

Kathleen said...

What a fun trip! Can't wait to hear about the rest! Darling family!

My best friend lives in Dallas & she took me to the Galleria. Typical of Texas, it's done up in big style. You have some beautiful girls there, what fun you all must have had. Happy PS! Niki

On the road with your girls must have been fabulous. I can just imagine the fun your four had. Lots of pinkness! Glad it was a fun trip for each of you. ~ Sarah

Susy said...

What a wonderful outing ~ all of you are American Beauties. I bet you're the first one to show pink body armor and a pink deer head for Pink Saturday (:

Natasha said...

Wow, what a brilliant time you all must have had. I took my Maddy to the American Girl shop and restaurant in New York when we visited there a few years ago. She got a doll and some clothes and books and we had the best time! Maybe when we next come to America we should visit Texas!

Best wishes,

Alice said...

That looks like a fun road trip! Especially with three beauties. Nothing better. My sister and I are going on one next week to see the okie branch of the family. I'll get to spend some quality time with the three grands and daughter. Don't know how long we'll be gone. Since Sha has retired we don't live by the clock.
love, al

Kathy@ Gone North said...

Oh, How very fun!!
Girl get-aways are the best.
Dallas is such a fun place to visit. I think that even the highways around Dallas are pretty.. so high & all those stars on the over-passes... And the shopping!!!! .. : ) Looks like you all figured that out.
Thanks for sharing a bit of your road trip.

Oh I just love your adventure! I have always wanted to go to the AG store.

Last Monday I did a tutorial on a pink party favor which you might enjoy.

Happy Pink Saturday!

LV said...

BJ, what a great way to spend time with your family. Seems everyone had a blast. Your daughter and girls are very pretty. Of course, their grandmother is not all bad. I got a comment from someone that calls herself "fannipauline". I went to return the comment and it did not show she had a blog. She only had about ten people she followed and you were one of them. She left me a nice comment. She will soon turn 81. I got excited to find another one my age. Would you my any chance know who she is. Take care.

Shirley said...

Oh I love American Girl Dolls..I bought my niece Samantha when she was 6 yrs. old..she is now in Collage and still loves her doll.
Your grandgirls are beautiful along with your daughter. So sweet!

Happy Pink Saturday, dear friend.

Wow! You girls had such a fun trip. I can see why you loved it all. And, just look at the pink.

Too bad you didn't get to bring home the pink fellow.
