Lauren and I really enjoyed the Bistro at the American Girl doll store. Their food was wonderful, and it was precious how a special chair was provided for her Samantha doll. One thing we really enjoyed was the conversation starter box. There was this cute little box with all kinds of random questions in it. We had to ask each other questions and answer them. Some were funny and some were just insightful. It really helped the conversation to flow between the different courses of our meal. I thought it was good bonding time.
