Build A Bear Birthday!

April 20, 2008 at 6:37 pm 2 comments

On Friday, we took The_angel_forever, NHL and JSL to Build A Bear to celebrate Isaac’s birthday a day early. We were originally going to do it yesteray, but big holidays (read: Passover!) got in the way of the plans…so we just went one day early!

(a big thank you to The_angel_Forever for the use of some of these photos-it’s hard to take pictures and wrangle a birthday boy at the same time!!)

So, we arrived at the Mecca of Stuffed Animals known as Build A Bear Workshop and let both crazy boys in…and they were greeted by this sight:

ooh..lots of choices....

We gave both boys a few choices, but really…if you’re a 4 year old boy…and one of the choices is a Dinosaur…specifically a Triceratops…do you really want to look at ANYTHING else?

Yeah. When we were planning this, we didn’t think so either, but we wanted to give choices just in case they surprised us…

So, off to the stuffer we went…

getting ready to go on the stuffer...

stuff that dino!!

and then grabbed hearts…

NHL picking a heart

And the dinos got stitched up…and then…

it was…


Then it was off to attempt to take photos of the two goofballs with their dinos…

With two cameras going, you’d think we’d get a straight shot of the two of them…

Isaac stays...sorta...

ummm...hey-stand still for a second!

Oh, forget it. We give up!

JSL was quite confusled by the goofy 4 year olds at this point…

What? You mean they always act like that?

Then, we got the dinos T-shirts and blue dino slippers (wearing sunglasses!!) and went to name them on the computers. Of course, the one computer that we could NEVER, EVER get to work properly when I was working there was the one that NHL sat down at. Argh. So, after I got Isaac’s done, I did NHL’s on the computer I was sitting at.

We wrangled our way up to the cash wrap (or Take me Home, as it’s called in BABW…) and as we were paying the boys decided to…well…be goofy 4 year olds again…

ooh! What's that?

Wow! It's a HAT!

so, what other mischeif can we get into?

So, after wrangling them away from the Bear Wall…we got houses for the dinos (named Trike and Dino respectively..) and attempted like crazy people like good mommies to attempt to take a picture OUTSIDE the store.

Remember the last set inside the store?

Yeah. It went that well. Behold.

Take 1

Take 2

Take 3

Forget it. We give up.

So, then, we went around the corner to Pizzeria Uno for lunch. YUMMMMMMY!

Lunch...with Dinos behind them!

But even with a silly lunch (Dino nuggets for NHL and pepperoni pizza for Isaac…), it was a great day for both kids! Isaac was thrilled to spend a few hours with NHL, and have birthday fun. This is the first year he’s verbalized that he “gets” it…so, it was a blast.

Now…if I could only keep the roaring in his bedroom at night to a minimum…

Happy Birthday, Monkey! Gender equality? Where the heck is it?

    No, thank you for inviting us. NHL had a blast and had no idea what he was going to really. BAB was all new to him. Just getting to see Isaac was great, but Trike and Shane were an added bonus . . . along with the dino nuggets 🙂

    P.S. Mom – you are the bestest . . . thank you again!
