The day a bear was built

We walked into a Build-a-Bear Workshop for the first time a couple months ago. L was intrigued and really wanted to make an animal. We said no, but reminded her that her birthday was coming up, so maybe she could have one then. She didn't mention it again (and we completely forgot about it) until a few days ago.

I decided to surprise her by taking her this morning. She was so excited!


She chose this black bear, put a heart inside, picked out an outfit, and named her Starry.
