The hello kitty mecca had been calling Ash's name for some time and on Saturday we finally took the trip. John was less than thrilled to set his three year old free in an entire store of girly, pink, WAY overpriced trinkets, but let's face it, you have to capitalize on these photo ops while you can. ;) When she's five she might not find the Sanrio store quite as exciting. :) Fortunately she's a pretty good shopper and while she enjoyed filling her arms with item after item, she was also perfectly happy to put them all back when asked. :) She was just happy to be there. :) (but yes, we did leave with a few things) :)
She had it in her sights from the minute we got on the escalator...
the minute we entered she was off... filling her little arms with all kinds of hello kitty goodness...
at least she was trying to be fiscally responsible by checking prices. ;)
she was careful to only grab necessities-- like a water bowl for the pet that we don't have
you would have thought she was on supermarket sweep. it was great. every little girl should have the chance to visit the hello kitt store once. if you're going to go, make sure you are prepared to shoot discreetly. Most of these were taken from the hip...literally. with no flash. i didn't see what I had captured until i got home. stores are not usually photography friendly. :)
Have a great day!
