Aunt Beth's present to Avery was dinner at the American Girl Bistro and getting Molly's ears pierced while at the store. Quite a treat for Avery. She was beside herself with excitement.
She was so excited to wear her "Betsy Ross" dress because Grandma had made one for Molly too and she really wanted them to match. I couldn't believe the looks she was getting. She got a ton of compliments on her dress and she ate up the attention.
Of course, the matching cheetah print shoes totally made the outfit.
Before we ate, Molly got her ears pierced. Avery loved this part.
Then we headed to the Bistro for more fun.
American Girl does not mess around. Every little detail at the Bistro is adorable. Every worker we came in contact with was sweet and went out of their way to make Avery feel special. It was seriously awesome.
There was a little box in the middle of the table with conversation starting questions. Super cute and fun until I asked the one about your favorite teacher and Avery began to cry because she misses her first grade teacher. Oops.
Our waitress was so sweet and the food was great. I was just happy to be there and loved that time with Avery and my sister.
Avery and Molly both swapped their bonnets for the birthday crowns they were given. So cute!
She got a special little cake that was falling apart but still beautiful. Several waitresses sang Happy Birthday to her. She took a minute to decide on a wish and then finally managed to blow out the candles.
Aunt Beth then surprised her with a mini Kaya doll in the bag at the end.
