"Mumbling, Rebecca how about I take this side and you take the other side?"
"I think we should move it this way Lindsey, we don't want it near the fire."
"A little to your left Rebecca!, don't step on my feet!"
"Hey guys, do we have enough plates for all three of us?"
Rebecca and Lindsey turned toward Mia, nodding while slowly backing up.
"How high do we want this bunting?" Mia asked, careful to not tangle it.
"I think we should hang it from the metal screws, just above the tallest person here, and, away from the fire." Rebecca replied.
"How am I going to get this up there? I'm too short." Mia sighed, Rebecca and Lindsey were still arguing about where to put the picnic blanket
"Hey!! That looks great, can we eat now?"
Once they finally started the fire they passed out the plates. Only to realize...
"Mia!" Lindsey called "You have an ant on you!" Mia scrambled swatting at imaginary ants and shooting a glare at Lindsey. Rebecca just grinned, Lindsey was brand new and didn't know that you do not pull pranks on the official prankster.
As the watermelon bunting was caught in the breeze they all managed small talk about the weather and complaining about how humid it was.
"Err, Rebecca?" You do know the fire is very close to your leg.." Lindsey said, trying to be helpful.
"I know, I'll move it in a second, Mia would you please get your plate?"
"Later as the sun sets we will roast s'mores but for now we will try roasting hot dogs. "
(This picture is just extra but look at how cute Rebecca is!)
"Do you want mustard or ketchup Mia?" Lindsey said, trying to break up the tension.
"Eh I'll just take ketchup." Mia replied with a warm smile, "I'm not much of a mustard fan."
"Me either" Lindsey said as Rebecca handed Mia the plate.
"While we wait for the fire to burn down would you go grab the hot dog buns, Mia?"
I love how I did Rebecca's hair!, I waterfall braided both sides and tied the hair up into two low ponytails. I was not planning on making this into a photo story but did not want to post another photo shoot of the dolls. I thought it would be more entertaining from their point of view :) I just realized that I still haven't introduced Lindsey to the group yet, for this story she starts off being their friend (well, not everybody's) and will eventually join once Grace comes :) Most likely Caroline will be introduced before, which I sort of have planned!
Thanks for looking!,
