5. Buil-A-Bear/Break the Bank - We visited Build-A-Bear this week. The kids each walked away with an adorable, cuddly friend. But boy is that place is expensive. I was fully aware of the expense before we went, but for some reason the idea of a toy with a t-shirt appealed to me. After the kids' toys were made, I have to say it was a special experience and the toys are quality. I actually would not mind one of my own. Annie's pink and yellow bear smells like strawberries and is so soft. We all love it, alas, she does not care about it (yet?). But yeah, unless someone else is paying, I do not think we will be able to visit again.
