Saturday Celebration: Build-A-Bear with Grand Kids

This year for Meron's (6) and Bam's (4) birthdays, one of the things we got them was a gift card to Build-A-Bear with the promise to take them there.  They were excited when they got the gift cards, but as the day got closer, they were even more excited. The day would not only be going to get these gifts, but also a trip to McDonalds!
They had so much fun picking out their new friends. Meron got a pink heart bear. She named it Princess and got to pick out a t-shirt with the Disney princesses on it for her bear. Bam picked out a pug dog and named him Tanner. He sings Happy Birthday when you press his foot!
Next came the birth certificates. It took us a little while to figure out the computer and get them printed. They both knew that today was the first day of their new friend's lives.

Next was the trip to McDonalds. Tanner and Princess stayed in the car to take a nap while we went in for lunch. Bam got a big spider in his happy meal and loved to tease Grandpa with it! Meron sat with Gramma and shared her fries!
We had so much fun with these birthday gifts.  They will be able to remember their time with Gramma and Grandpa whenever they look at their toys. What wonderful memories. This is a celebration Saturday for sure!


  1. Sounds like a perfect way to wrap up birthday celebrations. Beautiful smiles from everyone!

  2. How fun! We had a birthday party at Build-a-Bear for one of my daughters when she was little. It's such a great place!
