Build a Bear

My mom took Kaden to Build a Bear for an early birthday present.  I didn't think he would like it nearly as much as he did.  He had a great time choosing and creating his new buddy.

 They totally spelled his name wrong on his sticker, but he is still so cute in this picture:
 Kaden held onto this stuffed dog while he watched his bear get stuffed:
 Here he is putting not one, but two, hearts into his new friend:

 Helping his bear try on shoes:
 He loved the fireman outfit the best.  I tried to talk him into the pirate ensemble, but he gave a very adamant, "No!" to that idea.

 He is in love with his new friend.  The name on its birth certificate?  Mommy Bear.  I am so proud of Kaden for not showing gender bias.  I love that his macho firefighter is a female.  Of course, he's been calling all bears Mommy Bear after seeing Pixar's Brave, but still . . .

 He pushed this bunny around the store, while Grandma paid for his awesome present:

We Are Alive

While Chad endures mountains of stress moving all of our Earthly belongings from our rented townhouse to the un-renovated house we now own, Kaden and I are enjoying spoiling and relaxation in Utah.  Without humidity.  Poor Chad.  Seriously.

Here are some photos of one of our adventures.  We went to Boondock's Family Fun Center in Farmington, so Kaden could bowl on a lane just his size.

 Of course we had to play a little shoot ball, while we were there:

 The arcade games give you the traditional tickets that you can cash in for awesome prizes.  Here is Kaden, pictured with his loot:

 Heaven help me when he stops sticking out his belly like that.

 On the way home, we stopped by this really cool knock-off Belagio fountain.  Kaden loves watching it "sing and dance."

Then we swung by Cafe Rio and I devoured two enchiladas of pork awesomeness doused in mild sauce, guacamole, and sour cream.  Oh, and I drank a Henry Weinhard's root beer with it.  It's a hard life.
