Last month the girls and I embarked on a week-long “Teddy Bear Stay-cation” in lieu of traveling elsewhere for an actual vacation. So today I am kicking off a 5-day blog series showcasing our local bear-related adventures.
Day 1 featured a trip to Build-A-Bear Workshop to stuff, groom, dress and name two brand new teddy bears — Sassy and Brownie.
Sassy gets filled with stuffing, and it’s a noisy job.
Sassy gets her first hug.
Linnea runs the pedal on the stuffing machine; Brownie is filled to just the right level of fluffiness.
Brownie gets her first hug.
Brownie needs a quick “bath” with the brushes to remove extra fur.
Sassy also gets groomed.
Fashionably dressed, Sassy is a ballerina bear, and Brownie is a bride bear.
Day 1 down. Come back tomorrow to read all about Day 2 of our Teddy Bear Stay-cation!
