We had the best time shopping this morning. Jutta took me into this fabulous toy store. Oh my! I wanted to buy everything. They had the most fantastic dolls. I was very close to buying one for me. It was very expensive 99 euros. I think that is about $167. She was really cute but I thought my red hiking boots would be a better investment. (She is worth every penny but I had to make a choice.) I did take a picture of her and will attach it.
We visited toy stores, book stores, shoe stores, yarn shops and dress shops. Amazing! Each time I was in a new store I did not want to leave and I don't even like shopping. We bought a few things at the toy store. Mary got a necklace and I got a puzzle. I told Mary I would share but that it was MINE. We didn't have any luck at the book store. I told Mary I would buy her a german children's book. We've been looking for one that we already have so that we can learn the words and know the story. We have seen The very hungry caterpillar everywhere but she does not want that one. She wants Where the Wild Things Are. We only saw that at one book store and they were closed for lunch when we got back. Hopefully, we will have better luck later in the week. I bought yarn! I had to buy yarn. I also bought a book for dolly sweaters. I figured that since I couldn't buy a new dolly - I would make my old dollies some new clothes.
I bought my boots. I did! I was unable to buy them in red! I was very sad at first but Mary found me the perfect hiking boots. They are purple. Yes - I bought purple hiking boots. They are the perfect color - more like plum than purple. I'm ecstatic. Mary loves them. I can't wait to get home and hike in the Allegheny mountains.
