An American Girl in New York City- Part 1

Buenos dias, good morning, Bonjour, to my lovely blogland friends!

Yesterday, Hayley, my mom (Luz), my cousin (Katarina), and I went to have lunch at the
American Girl Place in NYC (Manhattan, The Big Apple). This was part of Hayley's birthday present. If you have a little girl in your life, it's definitely worth visiting. I love seeing all the girls walking around with their dolls in their arms, the excitement on their faces as they spot an outfit for their dolls. I love it when girls act their age, there's a sense of innocence to them, that only childhood provides.The AGP Cafe is beautifully decorated, there are painted flowers on the walls, dramatic black and white stripes, scalloped mirrors, lots of different shades of pink all over, everything screams out "GIRLY". The food is delicious, and the service is superb!. I love all the little details!

This is the sign at the entrance to the cafe:

And inside (actually we were in one of their private rooms, the main dining area is decorated differently, unfortunately I didn't take a picture of it)

On the table:

The girls get to keep the napkin ring ( a pony tail holder, CLEVER!)

The polka dot box has conversation prompts inside, CUTE!!

And a Warm Welcome: ( Cinnamon Buns, DELICIOSO) Oops, didn't take a picture of those!.

This was followed by the First Course: Pretzel bread with honey mustard, fresh fruit, cheese triangles, vegetable crudites and chicken salad boats, YUMMY!!

Our Entree Selections:

Hayley: Tic-Tac-Toe Pizza (she didn't like it),

So our waiter brought her instead, Bitty Bites:

I'll continue this post next time. But I thought that some of you may be wondering what I look like, here I am....

Oh well, close enough, lol!
I'll post a picture of what I really look like, next time!!
Have a great Monday.
Hugs, Rosa
To Be Continued...
