Build a Bear with Evan
First, I'd just like to say that I feel like I've really been neglecting my blogging lately. I hope to change that soon. No promises, but I'm going to try.
Evan turned 5 this week! He has really been wanting to go to Build-a-Bear so I told him that we would go on his Birthday. His actual birthday was this Thursday. I didn't have to work so he and I went to the store while Ryan was at school.
Let me just start by saying that I have never actually been inside of a Build-a-Bear store and while I understood the concept, I didn't REALLY know what to expect. I'm kind of a little bit proud of the fact that I've never scummed to the Build-a-Bear allure until now! Anyway, Evan and I had a really good time and I was so glad that we had the time to go and celebrate on his day like this together. It was a great Mommy & Evan date for the two of us and I think he felt really special.
I was certain that Evan was going to chose some gosh-awful looking bear with tie dye or something, but he settled on a really cute monkey that is just adorable.
