A few days ago we learned that the Build-a-Bear at our local mall was closing down. Naomi has asked many times to build a bear but there was always some reason why we couldn’t do it. Since we were at the mall on the 24th seeing the Big Guy, I figured I’d surprise Naomi by finally saying yes to a bear. She was so thrilled. They were having a big sale since they were closing down so the price was good. I have to say that the service was a bit lacking – part of the fun is the experience but we were kind of left on our own to figure out the steps and get someone to help us out. Nonetheless, Naomi seemed to really enjoy herself and was thrilled with her French Bulldog, Clarabelle.
