Building a bear

So we made the trek to Build-A-Bear Workshop because the Short Kid had gift cards from his Auntie M— burning a hole in his pocket. And he’d already decided he wanted the gray koala.

Now, since he had gift cards, he had plenty for the bear and an outfit. They have some cool stuff—Harley Davidson outfits. Fishing outfits. And the sports—uniforms for the New England Patriots, Boston Red Sox, Boston Celtics, Boston Bruins…you name it, they’ve got it.

The color-blind golfer

That’s my boy.

    That’s so cute. And it looks like a bear actually dressed by a kid instead of an adult. :thumb:

    LMAO! Ours is Raider, named of course, for the Raiders outfit he’s wearing. Who says macho short kids can’t sleep and play with bears?
