Sometimes fun things happen when I check my email. Here’s an example: I got a message the other day from Amy at Build-A-Bear asking if the kids and I would like to come on down to the local store and meet My Little Pony Rarity and the Cutie Mark Crusaders, Build-A-Bear style.* I immediately said yes, and asked if the kids could bring their best buddy Jonathan with. Amy graciously said of course and off we went to the workshop!

We knew that we were there to meet the Cutie Mark Crusaders, but as soon as entered the store, Ari ran straight for his trusty friend Rainbow Dash:

Samara, naturally went for Pinkie Pie:

Part of the process of Build-A-Bear is that you get to watch your toy get filled up with stuffing. It’s extremely exciting!

After the ponies were filled up, they looked like this:

Samara and Pinkie Pie and are tired đŸ™‚

Here’s the obligatory group shot:

My best buddy Jen and I and the kids and…there’s my mom! Hi Mom!

Oh! And I almost forgot guys! Here’s a Scootaloo!

Damn we had fun! So if you’re pony fan, head on down to Build-A-Bear and check out the Cutie Mark Crusaders!

*Sometimes companies and email and ask me to do wonderful things that I’m grateful for. All opinions expressed are my own. Also I like you.
