Happy Father’s Day to all the awesome Dads who help build doll houses, make the trek to American Girl, and are there for us everyday! 

It has been a long few weeks and I am really looking forward to things slowing down a bit as we head into summer. Natalie has one final performance for The Little Mermaid today and I’m actually sad its over. 

That’s Nat in the light blue dress as one of the princesses signing to Prince Eric in the scene called “The Contest.”

And now back to dolls and what your dolls have been doing this week!

From Cordelia – Katherine and Rose have settled into their cabin at Camp Doll Diaries. Katherine sewed the cushions and curtains as well as the Hudson’s Bay blankets (following Karen’s instructions from last summer). Rose, wearing her cherished Camp Doll Diaries hoodie, has set out the nature finds that they have collected so far as well as the items that they brought from home. Next they will make some posters for the cabin walls.

From Stephanie J – The weekend before last I had the opportunity to visit to AGPC! Now all of my modern dolls have new summer outfits! Kaitlyn (#7) is wearing the Purchase-with-Purchase Beach Dress; Isabella (#25) is wearing the Sunny Isle Outfit; Ariana (#28) is wearing the Floral Swim Oufit; and Zoey (#34) is wearing the Store Exclusive Starry Tee, the Store Exclusive Pink Shorts, and the Souvenir Accessories.

Back row: Rub-A-Dub Dolly she was fabulous in the tub and pool! And lastly, Timey Tell. She always went to the eye doctor with me and he’d check her eyes when he checked mine.
