The birthday party at Build-a-Bear was a huge success!! I am so thankful that I had the opportunity to share this with Riley..and her mommy and daddy! Here’s a look back at the day in pictures…..
This how we started the day….just a bit overwhelmed by it all! So much attention focused on one little girl. I was wondering if she was going to enjoy it – but she warm up to it all and smiled, laughed and even joined in….with Mommy close by her side!
A place FULL of bears and she was totally entertained by the Zhu Zhu Pets (I think that is it??) cage!! Typical.
Yep, she’s a nail biter!
Picking a heart for her bear. All of her friends picked TWO hearts – one for their bear and then one to place in Riley’s bear….with much kisses. Cute.
Not positive what is going on here – I think we were shaking our bears (for some reason)! Or maybe the mommies are just doing the happy dance?!?! Is the little one with the curls just too cute, or what? Natural curls:)
Yes, it was quite interesting to keep all the two-year olds engaged and entertained….all at the same time but Stephen, the party leader, made the best of it. I think it was Daddy who said it was similar to “herding cats”!! Yep, that’s about it.
Riley’s favorite part – by far – of building a bear was the bath that she gave her bear after it was stuffed. She swished it and rubbed and washed it forever:)
I think the children liked the Chik-Fil-A meals and cupcakes as much as the bears!! They all sat still…and quiet…just eating away. The cupcakes were totally chocolate. Yes, Riley’s three favorite foods are celery, cucumbers and chocolate (in that order!) 🙂 She asks for chocolate several times a day – doesn’t always get it but you can’t blame a girl for trying!!
Daddy and Riley blowing out the candles!!
By far, Riley’s favorite part about birthdays in general is singing Happy Birthday! Oh how I wish I could make videos on camera….I would love to hear her singing that right now:)
Happy Birthday, Big Girl
