I left Friday afternoon to drive to North Myrtle Beach for my first vacation in a couple years. What should have taken 7 hours took 11 hours, especially since we spent two hours going 6 miles in northern Virginia.
As I crossed the national harbor (drawbridge-scary!), I saw the Washington Monument and the Capitol dome for the first time, amid sunshine and cherry blossoms and sparkling blue water (cue the frogmen- some people will understand that!)
Then I was thrust into what is called The Mixing Bowl for my first time ever. I don't even want to explain it; I am still traumatized from the traffic. But at 15 minutes until midnight I arrived at my stress-lowering destination, along with Molly, Daisy, Abby and Alice.
Molly called shotgun and got to ride outside of their carrier. As you can see, she is a big fan of my driving. She did get a little bored once though.
Abby looks sweet here with her new pink/yellow eye chips, but her sleep string hasn't worked right since I got her, and it broke here so now we are stuck with those eyes until I get home or go buy a tiny screwdriver.
Alice hasn't been photographed much nor Abby, both because I don't want to get sand in their hair. Daisy is the only one who got to go on the beach, since I had just given her a Pure Neemo flexion body. How great that is! I am still figuring out what all I can do with it. Posted some additional pics on my Flickr.
First thing I get after giving her a new body is attitude, demonstrated above with "talk to the hand" and she doesn't even have opposable thumbs! Sure does make for fun photos, though. It took me an extra hour to get out the door for my trip because I had to pack clothes for the Blythes. Sometimes I crack myself up.
When we get back it will be time to work on a new dollhouse or Blythe Manor, and "Joey" should be home from Joey with her whole new face and self. Lilly will be pouty as usual; she never gets to go anywhere because of her earrings and beautiful hair. Don't want to mess up either one.
