I hope everyone is having a wonderful Earth Day! We are enjoying a calm spring rain which makes for the perfect Sunday, in my opinion! First, today it the last day for the April Reader Photo contest – get your entries in by midnight tonight and I will announce the winners tomorrow. Second, if you have not had a chance to take the Doll Diaries survey yet, please do – I am not sharing the information with companies – it is for my own personal use to make Doll Diaries an even better destination on the web! Plus, you have given me so much great feedback – I will be sharing answers to some of the questions and suggestions in future posts.

Here are some of the photos our readers have shared with me this week via email and also on our Facebook page.

Camden went to Washington DC and while she was there she bought McKenna at the American Girl store at Tysons. McKenna is taking in the sights in our Nation’s Capital – that is the Washington Monument in the background. Camden said the American Girl store did not even have McKenna’s gymnastics equipment on display.

Laurie gave her dolls a spa day. She followed the instructions for washing their hair that the staff at the American Girl Doll Salon gave her and it turned out perfect!

Laurie also took Elizabeth out for breakfast in Deleon Springs. She got to make her own pancakes and made doll sized ones for Elizabeth too.

Alicia got her first My American Girl doll and named her Yvette. Too cute if you ask me!!

Madelon’s Little Miss Matched Sporty Girl loves to climb trees and thinks life looks great from up high.

Chloe’s dolls are enjoying this Sunday afternoon. Molly on the left, Shannon in the middle (Her grandmother brought her from Ireland in 2003) and Felicity on the right.

Tamra’s Samantha looks very comfy in her hand crocheted outfit.

Shauna’s dolls Samantha, Ashley(look alike), Mia, Julie, and Nicki are meeting their new friend Rebecca.

We love seeing what you make for your dolls, adventures they have, and great finds. If you would like to submit your photo for next week’s Reader Photo Spotlight, here are the basics:
