This summer I got the idea to throw Julia a Build a Bear party...and back in September I booked it! Julia's birthday is already a party, she was born on New Year's Eve, but I like to celebrate her once with us as a family and then with her little friends.
Here is a picture of Julia with her buddy Capri. We've gone to library class together since the girls were less than 8 months old...we always try to get together for play dates and birthdays and Capri has a sister who is a few months younger than Mark. So Pam and I have gotten close these past few years. And obviously our girls have, just look at them! It's amazing how moms become friends because of their kids, I love it!
At build a bear we got there before our guests arrived and Julia and Mark had fun checking the place out and playing with the toys.
I know I am completely biased...but is he not the CUTEST thing since sliced bread???
Julia had 9 of her friends come, some sat with their parents and others sat around the build a bear hostess listening about how to build their bear.
I'm already thinking about ideas for next year...
