It's a birthday tradition to take the birthday girl to BaB. Part of the deal is that we go alone and said kid gets all the time she needs to pick her perfect new friend. I finally took Grace last Friday... only a week and a half late, lol.
Oh, did she have a hard time choosing!
She kept walking along that wall of unstuffed animals, picking up the owl, snuggling the snazzy kitty, growling with the wolf.
Until finally, she chose the horse! This surprised me since she usually picks the WWF choice (which would have been the wolf this year, but she said he looked mean...).
Time to stuff...
... make a wish...
and drop in the heart.
Meet Rocky! Isn't he cute? He has the shaggiest mane and tail!
Of course he needed some stylish clothes. This took forever. But I kept quiet. AND I will bribe her with this next time I'm in a clothing store and need more time, lol.
Then we realized that we were the only people left in the store and that they pulled down the rolling gate (or whatever you call it). Oopsy! We overstayed our welcome!!
Grace hurried through the sign-in. This usually takes a long time too, due to the name picking. But she came up with Rocky fast and went with it. Good girl.
I like how she put Rocky up to see the computer screen ;-).
And we're out!
