Trip to American Girl Place New York (last February)

I lost the memory stick (see previous post), but tonight, I was looking for it again and I actually found it! So now, I have pictures from my American Girl Place New York Trip from last February! I was unable to bring a doll (we had to pack lightly, and there wasn't room for my doll). But, I still got pictures! Of course now, I am going to post pics of my trip to AGP NYC and soon, I'll post pictures of my previous trip to AGP Washington D.C. (I went there this July, and I am going there again in a week!). Well, here are the pictures!
It was about to close when we went, but I was able to snap a few pictures. Here is one of a winter scene! I really liked how they had set it up, and I am pretty sure that the snowman in the background was wearing Julie's Scarf!
I thought this set up was really cool, especially how they had the scooter on display (at Washington D.C. store, I find that it is usually behind glass). This doll was kind of falling off it though!
The Saige stuff was really cool to look at, especially since she was so new (this was only in February).

I thought that this display was cute too, I loved it!
I love this picture, but the AGP NY is so amazing, that no picture could capture it.
Sorry I didn't take any pictures, I went about 30 minutes before closing time, but was able to get a special AGP Exclusive New York Shirt!

Found Memory Card, and A Trip!

So, I've been missing my original memory card to my camera for about 3 months now. Two trips were recorded on that memory card, so I was pretty excited to find it! The first trip was the Trip to AGP NY, but I'll post that one later, for now, I want to post the one that I took to FL and stopped by a place called Arcadia, FL. It is a small town, so a lot of people may not of heard it! We spent two days there, and I took my doll Jasmine with me (I couldn't take too much doll stuff either, so she is in one outfit for all the pictures!). Since the town is very historical, my doll and I both wore our 1800s clothes, and had a lot of fun. Here are pictures of my doll in some of the shops in the Historical District!
Here is a beautiful picture of Jasmine next to some pretty flowers that lined the walkway!
Another picture of Jasmine with the flowers, only with different lighting.

In a cool store, they had a place to sit and play checkers! The checkerboard was so authentic and placed on top of a barrel! Jasmine wanted to play a game of checkers, but we didn't have time to.

Then, we went into another store, with some really authentic looking school desks, and books! They are all the way from 1920 or something (I forget the exact era). It was a little bit big for Jasmine though....
Here, she is trying to read the text in a small book of spelling words...whoa, that print sure is tiny!

Then, in the next store, she found something that was more her size. She found her own table and chairs. They are really cool, don't you think?

A few stores, later, we came across a more modern store, where they had some pretty cool, neat, inventions and different products. They had a lot of handmade stuff too! Jasmine loved this handmade pinecone cat, so she used some of her money and brought it home to Ivy.

She also saw some cute Tape dispensers. She thought the frog one was especially creative, and bought a frog one for Lanie and a rooster one for Kanani.

After all that shopping, she sat to rest on a wonderful red, wooden, chair. It was quite comfortable. There was also a nice breeze.
Well, that's all the pictures from that trip......gosh, it is hard to believe it was all the way back in February/March, and I am just now finding the memory stick!
