This was my son's first trip to Build-A-Bear, I want to film it., but the store was PACKED!   We waiting in line over 30 minutes to stuff our bears.  So I opted to just take pics instead, waiting in line did cause my daughter to change her mind quite often to what item she wanted :-)  She finally decided on the Pink Hello Kitty, while my son stuck with his original pick the border collie!

The kids each made their own animal, with the assistance of wonderful Build-A-Bear workers.  They had the kids rub the little hearts different places before placing it in their animal.  My son rubbed it on his leg to have his dog stay by his side, on his belly to make sure his dog is not hungry, etc.  My hubby was with my daughter on the other side of machine and I could not hear what she was doing, but I saw her jumping and running in place with the heart!  They had a blast!   Speaking of blasts, here is a blast from the past.  The only other time daughter has been to Build-A-Bear was for her 2nd birthday.  Here is a picture from that trip:

After making their animals they each gave their pets a bath!


The store had so many cute and creative ideas too!  Seriously How cute are these outfits?
