So, Derek and Brooke got to go on their birthday "date" with my Mom the other day. Mom thought that Build-a-Bear would be a cool place to go since neither kid had been there before. Derek likes pretend play and Brooke is attached to soft teddy bears which made this the best choice for both.
Patiently waiting in line with MiMi.
Here Derek is "warming the hearts" that go inside each stuffed animal.
Bathing and brushing his stuffed dog.
Brooke loving her soft teddy and not letting go of it.
