One of our favorite American Girl Historical Characters, Julie, is celebrating her birthday today! When Julie was released a few years ago I was fascinated by her! Julie’s birthday is May 1, 1966 which means she is the same age (give or take a year or two) as most of my friends and me. We wore bell bottoms, we were the first generation of girls who played sports in school, we had lava lamps, shag carpet, and banana seat bikes – just like Julie. I think that has a lot to do with her popularity – that and her long, straight, blonde hair.

Julie’s best friend Ivy and their friend Madison have got the party table set up. Ivy brought Julie some balloons and a few presents. Madison brought the cake and sandwiches and now they are just waiting for Marisol to come celebrate with them.

The girls are just waiting for Marisol to join them! Marisol had a big 5K race and is just resting for a few moments before she has treats with the others.

Julie is saying “Thank You” to Ivy for the thoughtful party, the balloons and the gifts!
