Statue of Liberty

 This year in school we have learned about Emma Lazarus who wrote the  poem on the  pedestal  for the statue of liberty. It's title is the The New Colossus. Lola liked listening to the story on the headsets, we didn't get to listen to all of it and so she is excited about the idea of coming again on a warmer day to see some more.

NYC exploring

central park zoo 

Museum of Natural History

Lion King

 What an amazing way to introduce the Doll to Broadway- The Lion King has been on Broadway since 1997. Luckily our hotel had some deals on seats. We took her brothers to see it when it came to Denver, and now to take her to see it was really sweet. She said it was the best play she has ever seen.

On the way home from the museum we stopped in 
Stamping Ground,  KY to look for a letter box, sadly after many searches we didn't find it. The girls however really enjoyed the park:)

Our church, & several in the area, support a mission in Covington. At a local church they were having a mystery dinner theater set in the 80's. We  had a good time & fun fellowship with some people from our area for a good cause.

Blooms and Berries

 We went with friends to see the Sunflower field and to pick a pumpkin after a hay ride:)

Homemade gifts for a friend

One of our friends was having a chocolate birthday. She also has a love for American Girl dolls. So we thought we would whip up a batch of candy for the dolls to enjoy too. It was such a fun and quick gift to make. We made mini hershey kisses and mini candy canes.
(By the way-- note to self--- chocolate themed birthday needs to be added to Mom's birthday party ideas. We had so much fun tasting chocolate from around the world. It was really a great idea!)
