Build A Bear

Today we made our first trip to Build a Bear to make a Valentine's present for Daddy. (No peeking, Daddy.) And one for Jack, too, of course. He chose a triceratops for himself and a husky dog for Jay. The Build a Bear lady thought he was just the cutest thing ever because when she told him to make a wish on the hearts for the stuffed animals, he said, "I wish this day would never end!" Where were the video cameras?! I need some Build a Bear cash for that one!

Getting the hearts ready

Putting in the stuffing

Giving the animals their "baths." I think this was his favorite part.

After the animals were ready, we went to the clothing area. I had thought this would be a great connection for Jesse Bear, the book we are starting next. Not one to like connections, Jack refused clothes. Don't you know animals don't wear clothes, Mom? I guess I should be glad he saved us the extra money. Then we named the animals (triceratops is now Greeny and dog is now Bear) and got them birth certificates. I got out with two animals for about $40, which wasn't as bad as I thought. All in all it was pretty fun and Jack even rode the escalator down without being held.

FUN! We spent all afternoon last Monday at the mall for Grace's birthday. We of course stopped at BAB. Gracie got a valentine puppy and Samantha got a brown bear. I wish I would have thought of the BAB idea. That place makes a killing!
