On February 17th, my daughter turned 8 years old. I can’t believe that she is already 8 years old—it seemed like it was just yesterday that I swaddled her in her baby blanket. And now she is a 2nd grader.
My daughter wanted to have her birthday shindig at Build-A-Bear Workshop, so she invited a few of her friends to celebrate with her. Build-A-Bear is one of her favorite places and I thought the idea of her making new furry friends with her friends was something she would always remember.
The kids made bears, they laughed, they played, and they created memories. And as I watched the kids mix and mingle and enjoy themselves, it made me thankful for having such a wonderful daughter. She has been such a blessing to me and to our family!
The staff at Build-A-Bear Workshop at West County Center here in St. Louis made sure that my birthday girl was treated like a star. They were friendly and helpful, but they always are every time we visit. And we visit a lot!
Below are a few pictures from the Build-A-Bear Workshop soiree:
The party’s just getting started
I am not sure how we are going to top this year’s birthday party, but I guess that is something I can begin thinking about several months from now! 🙂
How do you create memories with Build-A-Bear Workshop?
I, The Cubicle Chick, am one of Build-A-Bear Workshop’s 15 Friends, a campaign created to celebrate 15 years in business and 100 million furry friends. I receive special perks for being a “friend” of Build-A-Bear Workshop. The opinions in this post are all mine.
Looks like a really fun time! The kids are so cute with their bears 🙂

Thank you for commenting. The kids had a great time and my daughter really enjoyed giving her friends bears and making them with them.

I love Build-A-Bear, the party was a good idea, didn’t know they offered that. My girls are older now, they still have their animals. Enjoy, they grow up so fast, I know you are quite aware of that though. 🙁

It looks like they had a wonderful time! I LOVE that last pic of chicklet – you need to print that one out and hang it on the wall!
