We encourage girls of all ages to get away from it all and explore new terrain every now and then. Our most recent girls’ getaway---which is happening as we speak--included a new JSG inductee: Madeline, aka Hope’s daughter. (Note to our regular readers: Not to worry—we’re not turning in to Mommy Bloggers—not that there’s anything wrong with that.)
Madeline asked for a trip to NYC for her 10th birthday and Hope was only too happy to oblige! We stayed at the Muse Hotel (another Kimpton Group winner), which is situated close to Times Square and close to Rockefeller Center, Saks and the American Girl store (Guess whose request that was!). Our room was ready for us at our 10 am arrival, even though we had not requested an early-check in. What a dream!
Our highlight was lunch with JSG’s Annie at the Vynl Diner. We loved the Dolly Parton themed bathroom and still can’t get “9 to 5” out of our heads. After that, we enjoyed a cyclo ride through Central Park and down Broadway. We were proud when Maddey rolled her eyes at the long line of folks trying to get into the David Letterman Theater for the Survivor finale. Then it was off to the American Girl store to complete Maddey’s birthday trip.
We give Maddey major kudos for her city girl outfit. Love that she's already rocking the metallic!
Happy Day After Mother’s Day!
