A New Look For Tangerine

From Tangerine:

On the Fence
Yesterday I was sitting on the fence, looking at the pretty wildflowers, when Mama said that today we would be having a spa day.  I didn't know what that meant, but she said I would be my own unique person afterward.

Custom Mango
So today we did the spa day and it was fun.  I like my freckles and shorter hair.  Plus, I got my own dolly as a surprise after we were done.  But, now I'm all worn out and ready for bed.

A note from the Mama:  Tangerine's makeover included lifting her gaze, enhancing her eyes and lips, added freckles, trimming her hair and spray matting her face.

A Doll Museum

From Summer Lark:

Morning Hike
I have been very busy, which is keeping me from having time for my chemistry experiments!  Here I am hiking on a mountain.  I loved the pink flowers in the meadow behind me.

But yesterday we visited a museum filled with dolls, toys and miniatures from long, long ago.  The museum is in a lovely old Victorian home, so I dressed up appropriately.

We are Japanese
This antique doll is from Japan and is life size.  She used to sit in a public library for kids to play with

Antique Dollhouse
There were lots and lots of dollhouses and some were huge.  I wish I could have played with them!

What's this?  I have no idea, but I heard it's some kind of talking device.

A Stroll in the Garden

From Summer Lark...  Last night we had a rain storm with lots of thunder and lightening.  It was wonderful to go out in the garden this morning and smell the fresh air.  I showed Tangerine my favorite places to hang out.

4th of July in the Mountains

From Lark (formerly called Summer, but that will be explained later!)

We spent 5 days in the mountains and since it was the 4th of July I wore this pretty bow.

I loved the wildflowers and they were everywhere! I studied hard to learn their names.

This was my favorite flower and it's called Larkspur, so I asked if I could change my name to Lark and my person said yes!!!

Sometimes it best to just sit and contemplate in the forest. I do my best thinking here!

At 8200 feet high it gets cold at night, so I put on my warmest sweater and we lit a fire.

Who lives in there?
I think a big scary gnome might live in there!

Final Sunrise
On the last day I watched the sun come up and said goodbye to the campground.
