So we find out on Friday that my husband has to go to Laredo for the work week, not fun at all. We wanted to do something fun with the girls today and we remembered that we got some gift cards for Build a Bear for the birthdays!
We told our oldest this morning that we were going to make her a bear, boy was she excited, so noon rolls around and we start to get ready to go. The phone rings, my husband gets called into work, poor sweetie, she was looking forward to building that bear. Luckily, he isn't gone all day (several hours mind you), but not all day, so he gets back and we head on up there.
Once we get to there my oldest's eyes light up like it's Christmas morning, she picks out her bear and then onto the clothes. Well, the whole way up there she told us she wanted her bear to be Tinkerbell. We explained to her that they might not have that outfit, but ok. We get to the clothes, and what do you know, Tinkerbell. She is ecstatic, we are pleasantly surprised, and the baby is running around the store oblivious to what is going on.
We make our way over to the stuffing machine, and the poor clerk attempts to get the baby to push the pedal, yeah right, and gets her's stuffed. I think it was at that point that she started to "get it" but not really; although she did enjoy hugging her bear. My oldest on the other hand is having the time of her life, stuffing, "bathing", clothing, and finally paying for her precious Tinterbell (yes, she calls it Tinterbell). We leave the store and the mall with two very happy children. The entire way home all she could talk about was her new bear and how exciting it was, so much fun.
Here are some photos to go with the day:
