A Trip to the Arboretum with Lainey

Hi guys, Rebecca here! Yesterday I went to an arboretum (a woodsy, large outdoor garden) with my cousin Lainey. I was planning to post this yesterday, but after the arboretum I was pretty shot, so sorry about that! But anyways, we took a bunch of photos, so let's just jump right in! By the way, Lainey and I LOVE photography, so we took a TON of photos. XD

Here we are when we first got there! We're overlooking some woods, but you can't really tell. Also, guys, the glasses I'm wearing aren't really mine... They're actually Grace's, but I thought they really matched my outfit and I needed them. xD

*So sorry for the terrible focus of those photos!*

There was this really cool rock pathway, (as you can kind of see, I'm standing on it) and it led down into the woodsy-gardeny area :)

"Should we go down now?" I asked Lainey.
"Yeah, I think that's a good idea," she agreed. 

The view was awesome!

Our tour guide said that the bush I'm standing in front of is actually a gum bush, how cool is that?! I told mom that we totally needed one for our backyard- us girls go through a lot of gum, LOL!

Butterflies were like, everywhere! 

Mom lead me off the tour for a while so she could take some photos of me by trees and such :)

There was this neat pale blue bush, I'm standing in front of it for this photo!

Me (you can see Lainey's mom getting a photo of her in the background!)

Lainey :)

Us dolls hiking through the woods... it was so tiring! 

Me in front of a palm tree~

Here I am in front of this hanging vines tree. Ugh, this photo has such bad focus :(

Here's Lainey in front of the tree. Man, this photo has bad focus too... Gosh!

Rebecca+Lainey=Friends Forever

There were tons of trees for me to climb- it was awesome, I love climbing trees! And sorry for the glare in this pic.

It was so much fun to just hike through the woods.

Here's Lainey, standing in some trees!

I think Lainey loves hiking too.

Here I am with Lainey in front of a mountain!

Lainey and I up in a tree... Oh my gosh, I was so scared, we were so high! 

I'm terrified of heights, but I don't think Lainey is, haha!

Here I am sitting on a smaller tree :)

Lainey and I conquered the rock maze!
After that we had to leave-- hang on, let me show you guys the bonus pics mom shot :)

The arboretum had cactus for sale!

Bees apparently really liked the flowers :)

Me sitting by some flowers~

Well, that's it for this post, thanks for reading! Sorry it was really long, like I said, Lainey and I love photography, so we made sure we got a lot of photos :)
Overall, I think Lainey and I had a great time at the arboretum, and we both can't wait to go again!


AG Store Photos!

Hey everyone! ^_^ Today I went to the AG store with my mom, mostly to see Melody and all the new releases. It was super fun, as always! I love going there. I took a bunch of photos for a post (and nobody even stared at me! I guess that store is just a normal place where teens carry around dolls and take pictures xD)
By the way, I brought Lea, Maryellen, and Grace with me, but Maryellen ended up sitting in the car because me and my mom figured 3 dolls would be too much to carry around :( But Lea and Grace had a wonderful time :)

One of the store's Maryellens serving Lea and Grace some food after the long journey to the AG store-- the dolls were very hungry, and Maryellen's diner- who could pass up that?!

Lea taking a snooze in Melody's bed ;)

A Maryellen relaxing on her sofa bed.. That bed is SO cute.

Another Maryellen setup :) She looks really nice in her new dress!

Maryellen's fridge which came with the new release. I'm not a huge fan of this, but my mom and I both agreed that the TV dinners are super cute!

(Sorry for the blurryness of this picture.)
Josefina's new dress (I forgot the name, sorry, LOL!)

Okay... the new Truly Me kitchen is absolutely ADORABLE! Too bad I already have a doll kitchen. LOL! I LOVE the Kitchen Aid mixer. It looks just like mine-- AG did a really nice job with this set. 

I love the big pot on the stove! I can just picture dolls using that pot to survive out in the wilderness or something XD

Grace trying out her gymnastics on the Truly Me gymnastics set with some friends. That doll next her in the pink leo looks like her cousin, Lainey!

Some Truly Me outfits- the snowboarding set, the 2 in 1 ice skating outfit, and one of those winter-y outfits :)

Grace and Lea relaxing in Lea's treehouse with one of the store's many Lea dolls! 

So sorry for the blurryness of this photo, but the accessories that come with Lea's treehouse are so cute! I love the beans and rice on the plate. 

Lea and a display Lea had a blast using the Lea's fruit/smoothie stand on display :D

My Lea made friends with lots of the other Leas at the store!

The new Truly Me pop-up camper is totally adorable, and Grace had a lot of fun posing for a photo inside it :)

Alright, so... the pancakes that are one of the small accessories that come with the pop-up camper are SOO cute! The detail on them is just amazing... *dies* They look so real and amazing.. oh my gosh. Sorry for that little rant xD

This horse stable setup is just priceless! <3

I TOTALLY love this outfit set. I'm a competitive swimmer and swim about 13 hours a week, so I LOVE the swimming set! And I'm sure my BFF (yes, you A!) would love the gymnastics leotard. 
And LOL, Grace totally photobombed this pic.

This setup is really cute. :) 
(Extra credit if you spot Grace XD)

Grace and a friend enjoying AG's new lasagna set. Wait, didn't Grace just eat at Maryellen's diner? Time to #burncarbs

The mix and match outfits are totally swag!

*Sorry for blurry photos! :(

This dress is extremely cute- I think it'd look really nice on Isabelle.

I'm totally in love with this doll- she's so cute and I love her poofy hair! <3 I had to take a picture of her. 

I love how AG puts bald dolls on display now, too. 

Melody's corner of the store! :)

Lea posing by Melody- those two got along really well, and I can tell Lea is hoping that Melody will join our doll family! I'm not sure that will be happening, though...

Melody's fancy coat outfit... Is that what it's called? I don't know xD Whatever it's called, it's super cute!

Melody's music-set-thingy. This is really cool :D

The piano actually plays music!

Melody is a really cute doll, but I guess I'm not that attached to her as I am for some of the other BeForever dolls. She is really adorable though. ^-^ I love her outfits!

Lea asked Melody if she could try on her headband, and Melody, being the nice doll that she is, agreed. It definitely looks better on Melody, don't you think? LOL! 

At last, the time came that we had to leave the AG store. The girls can't wait to go back again!

And here they are, rejoined with Maryellen, in the car to go back home. 
We had a great time at the AG store! I was supposed to go with my best friend, but she couldn't go, so I really missed her and my dolls missed going with their cousin :( Oh well, maybe next time! 

Thanks for reading! Have you guys ever been to the AG store? Did your dolls make lots of new friends? Mine definitely did!

Talk to you later :)
