Yay! Dothan got a Babies R Us this week. Well, it's a Toys R Us and Babies R Us in one building. Ellie and I went to the grand opening yesterday to take it all in. They had characters walking around and free cake and all kinds of fun things to do. She was all excited about seeing the characters since we'd been talking about it for a week. But as soon as she saw them all larger than life, she was scared. After a while of walking past them and waving she finally wanted take pictures with them. The store is really nice and neat and I am excited to have one so close. In LA we had to go all the way to Houston to get to one. It was pretty crowded yesterday and I'm sure it will be through the weekend. We'll definitely go back soon though. There are a few baby things that have gotten popular in the last 3 years that I want to get. Here are some shots of E with the characters.
Weird alligator/dragon guy. Not sure who he's supposed to be.
The ever popular Strawberry Shortcake dressed as a princess.
And of course Geoffrey the Giraffe.
There was also a CareBear, Diego, a Ninja Turtle and Darth Vader (who most kids were terrified of). They were no where to be in the few minutes between when E decided she wasn't scared anymore and I was too tired to walk around anymore.
