Thanksgiving and a Visit to an American Girl Place

Dia duit! Happy Thanksgiving, Americans! I've never celebrated American Thanksgiving before, but this year Daid's friends invited us to come stay with them in Connecticut for a few days and have Thanksgiving there. I'm really excited!

At first, Mam and Daid planned to take me to the American Girl Place on Saturday, but they thought it would make more sense if we went on our way to Connecticut, so I got to go yesterday! The car ride was super long, but it was worth it once we got there!

While I was there, I met a girl named Joy who looked just like me! She was super nice, and even agreed when I asked if we could take a picture together for my blog. Thanks, Joy!

I loved the sweater Joy was wearing, so that was the first thing I bought! Isn't it pretty?

Next, I found a toy boat in the store's play area. Another girl joined me, and we played in the boat for nearly half an hour! We pretended that we were lost in a really big, deep ocean. Suddenly, a bad-guy-ninja popped out of the water! The girl and I fought him with the oars of the boat. Just before I pushed him back into the water, I ripped off his mask. Turns out he was actually the girl's dad! Oops!

I looked around for a long time, playing in toy cars, pretend kitchens, and a bunch of other stuff. I wish I could've bought everything! I finally found an AGP Boston t-shirt that I decided to add to my collection. Now I have one from New York AND Boston!

I had so much fun at the American Girl Place! I really hope I can go back sometime soon!

Happy Thanksgiving!



  1. Salut, Saoirse!
    Wow, what a fun way to celebrate Thanksgiving! Sadly, we don't celebrate it in France, but I like it. Pumpkin pie is so delicious.
    I really want that, Ava does. I'd go it, though. ;)

    1. Dia duit, Sabine!

      I also love pumpkin pie! Daid said that there will be a ton of different kinds of pie at his friend's house--pumpkin, chocolate pudding, lemon meringue. I can't wait to try them all! :)

    I'm glad you were able to go to a American Thanksgiving!
    And the AGP! Sounds fun! I've only been to Dallas and Houston!

  3. Yay AGP Boston! You're so lucky you got to go there! I've never been to one, but Emily and Lilly have. I hope you had a great Thanksgiving, and you got to try all those yummy pies! :D

    I hope you had a great Thanksgiving, too! And the pie was amazing. There were so many different kinds!
