Our god-daughter, Nyla’s birthday was yesterday, but her party was in Charlotte this past Saturday. She decided she wanted to take her guests to Build-A-Bear and Chick-Fil-A and that’s what we did. Though, one of my girlfriends gave RJ a gift card to BAB for his baptism last year, we hadn’t taken him yet. I was aware of the process, but had never experienced it. I think it’s rather cute that the kids really do stuff the bears and give them a heart.
Hubby, RJ and I arrived before the rest of our group. The store was practically empty. My BFF, Nyla’s mom didn’t do a formal party through BAB. I don’t blame her. One, they don’t do parties for fewer than 6 kids. Two, footing the bill for a lot of kids at BAB is not cheap. There were only 4 in our party. So, we just had the kids go through the process together instead of a “party”. By the time we corralled our 4, the store had gone from empty to chaos. With a large party taking place and additional customers, it was a little crowded. However,
we the kids had a great time!
When I asked him what he wanted to name is dog, he responded, “Doggie”. Of course, what was I thinking! 😐
Off to Chick-Fil-A…
Nyla started dance classes a few months ago. So, this is very fitting cake for our Angelina Ballerina.
Apparently, building a bear and eating cake and ice cream can wear a boy out!
