|Another gift for her dolls. Who's birthday is this anyway? haha|

|She asked for a "birthday haul" which is something she sees a lot on YouTube, and it's just a big box of multiple smaller gifts. We did our best to comply!|
After opening her birthday gifts, Kaitlynn was SO excited to realize that she had enough money with her savings to buy the 2016 American Girl of the year, Lea Clark. She had been saving since Christmas, so she was super excited! The day after Kaitlynn's birthday, we drove to the American Girl store so that Kaitlynn could purchase her new doll. She was so happy!

|Finally, she has her very own Lea!|
It was only a few days later that we were back at the AG store again, this time to meet up with Kaitlynn's all-time bestie, Anais. We had a nice birthday lunch for Kaitlynn, and then Anais was able to come back for a sleepover so that these long lost friends could have some much-needed time together.
