Boyds Bear Country and the Nursery

Where is Dennis? We planned on an indoor outing (oxymoron) since Dennis was just below us when we went to sleep last night. Instead of rain we got heat and humidity. Oh well!!! We went to Boyds Bear Country to check it out. It's located just behind our campgrounds so we decided to go. Boyds Bear Country is a lot like Yankee Candle and Longaberger Baskets, it has some of their products, but it's based on stuffed bears and a few other cute and cuddly mammals.

The girls loved the soft and cuddly bears as you might imagine

There were some paw print tiles along the balcony and I tried to get a picture through the tiles and it kinda worked.

Then they closed the trap on the unsuspecting grandparents with a bear nursery full of adorable, soft, furry, smiling, baby bears in pink and blue. What great marketers, they must be related to the candle and basket people.

Well to make a long story short the girls each adopted a bear. Ansley a dark brown girl she named Amber and Sierra a lighter brown girl she names Anna. They never got past the "A" page in the "Names Book"

Next we strung beads with both the girls names and their adopted bears names

After a brief ceremony the bears were adopted.

Ansley headed straight to the changing table with Amber..

Then we went outside to take pictures with the straw horse.

All in all it was a good day in spite of the 90+ degree heat.

No Scrabble today
