I had the pleasure of going out to Vancouver this week for a few days for work and I took a couple of the mini lalaloopsys with me. When I started this blog, the point seemed to be to take interesting pictures of my mini dolls in interesting places and lately I seemed to have moved away from this theme and have been taking pictures of my regular dolls which I love but this time I put the little ones in my pocket in case anything came up.
I was staying at the Four Seasons there and they have put up a display of 20 or so trees from different companies to raise money for charity. Many included local organizations such as the Police, the Fire Department and the Ambulance drivers but there was also a very sad and poignant tree from the children in Japan who were affected by the devastation there and they sent along their hopes in English for their future.
In the end I took out Spot and Jewel and they only wanted to take their pictures with certain trees.
First off is the A & W tree (there was alot of corporate sponsors here). I too like a Root beer once in a while.
A lovely Buddha tree with fun graphics. People could also vote for their faves among all the trees.
The Four Seasons has a Zen garden in the bottom level and a large Buddha in the lobby which the girls did want to pose with.
Finally they found a pink tree which was right up their alley.
Then we discovered a tree filled with Barbie clothes, mostly playline and some hand made sweaters put on by the Children's Hospital. It was my favourite but there was one more to come that they preferred.
The way to a Lala's heart is through their stomach, I guess....
While there I popped into the local TRU and found a new playset.
