Hey everyone! Before we start the photostory I have to let you know something:
When my dolls go to Camp Doll Diaries they aren’t gonna be my “kids” that are going, but they will all be from different families and will be friends 🙂
Now that I’ve given you that piece of information, let’s get on with the story!
“Clara! Clara! Clara!!” Rebecca screamed as she came bursting through the bedroom door.
“Now that you’ve scared me half to death, what is it?” Clara asked with a smile, but still trying to catch her breath. She was very startled.
“Look! We got a postcard and it says that Camp Doll Diaries will be starting on June 2nd!!” Rebecca said.
“That’s super soon and this year you can come with me because now you’re old enough! Isn’t that exciting? We’ll have so much fun together!!” Rebecca said excitedly.
“Oh, yeah, that’s real exciting.” Clara said as she turned her head away.
“Clara? What’s wrong? I thought you’d be sooo excited! You were really sad when you couldn’t go last year.” Rebecca said, feeling confused.
Clara got up from her desk and walked over to the vanity. “I know, Becca, it’s just that…. Well, I think I’ll stay here again. It really wasn’t so bad last year.” Clara said sadly.
“Clara, you said you were super lonely and bored with me gone all summer. Now, what’s really wrong?” Rebecca asked.
“I know what I said last year, and it was true. I really was sad, but now that I’m old enough and now that it’s here-” Clara paused for a moment. She was ashamed to say how she felt because Rebecca was so outgoing and brave. Clara really looked up to her. Finally, somehow she managed to get out the words, “The truth is, Rebecca, I’m scared! I’m not going to know anyone or how to do anything! I’m the type of girl who’d like to stay inside and read a book or watch movies! I just don’t think I could handle it.” Clara cried.
“Oh, Clara! I understand how you feel. I felt the same way when I first went to camp. But I promise you that you’ll be just fine! You’re going to love camp and make lots of new friends! And if you want, you could spend all of your time in the crafting cabin or sitting on your bed reading a book. No matter what you choose to do, I know you’ll have the time of your life!” Rebecca explained.
“Thanks, Rebecca! I guess I’ll go, but I probably won’t stop being scared until after the first day of camp.” Clara said with a little smile. She was still very nervous, but if what her sister said was true, she thought she might as well give it a try.
Today, my mom and I did some crafting! We had SO much fun making these things for Camp Doll Diaries!
Have you started preparing for Camp? Do you have a “child” who’s as scared as Clara?
Sometimes it’s nice to get out of the house and pick up a little treat. And that’s exactly what Cecile did!
“This line is taking kind of long.” Thought Cecile. She had been waiting for 10 minutes just to get a drink and a cake pop.
“Thank you, Rebecca! We’ll call you when your drink is ready. Napkins and straws are to your left.” Said Saige, the barista.
“Okay, thank you!” Said Rebecca.
“I can help the next guest in line!” Said Saige while looking at Cecile.
“Hi, what can I get started for you today?” Saige asked her customer.
“Hi, I’d like a Tall, Strawberries and Creme’, doubled blended, please.” Cecile said politely.
“One, Tall, Strawberries and Creme’ and did you say double blended?” Saige asked, making sure she got the order right.
“Yes, that’s right.” Cecile replied.
“Okay and will there be anything else for you today?” asked Saige.
“Hmmm… How about a Red Velvet Cake Pop?” Cecile ordered.
“Alright, and will that be all for you today?” Saige asked.
“Yes.” Cecile replied nicely.
“Okay, you’re total is $5.50.” Saige said.
Cecile dug in her wallet and pulled out her Debit card.
“Thank you! I’ll get your cake pop and we’ll call you when your drink is ready.” said Saige.
Saige picked out the nicest looking cake pop for Cecile.
“There you go!” Saige said, “Napkins and straws will be on your left.”
“Thank you!” Said Cecile.
Eli was busy at work making all of the drinks.
“One Tall Mocha Frapp with Whip!” Eli called.
“Thank you!” Said Rebecca.
“You’re welcome!” Eli replied.
While Cecile waited for her drink she enjoyed talking to the girl who was in line in back of her.
Pretty soon, Cecile heard Eli call out,
“One Tall Strawberries and Creme’ double blended!”
“Annika, when your drink is ready, would you like to sit with me? Unless you have to be somewhere-” Cecile said.
“No,” Annika interrupted, “I was planning on staying here anyways and
I would enjoy some company.”
Annika and Cecile drank their Starbucks together and had a great time. Not only had Cecile gotten an amazing drink, but she made an amazing friend as well.
Have your dolls ever been to Starbucks?
Yay! My prize for winning in Natalie’s Photo Challenge (at Doll Diaries) has finally arrived! I took a couple of pictures so you could see 🙂
It was inside a cute little Hello Kitty bag and sealed with a “J” sticker! “J” for my name- Hehe! 😀
How cute! A little Tote Bag! Inside the Tote Bag was a couple of Doll Diaries business cards and some Build-A-Bear stickers! Her business cards are adorable- I get mine from the same company 😀
That Tote is just too cute! I’ll have to take some pictures of my dolls with it 🙂
