Luke, I am your Father...

This is Bear Vader. This afternoon, we took Stephen to walk at the mall because it was raining, and that's always a fun thing to do. While walking around, we noticed several people dressed as Storm Troopers outside the Build-A-Bear Workshop, and decided to go check it out. Stephen was not only NOT afraid of the men in "scary" costumes, but he found it all pretty amusing. He was shaking all of their hands, and blew kisses when we left. We needed to get him home for a nap, but when we found out that the characters would only be there this afternoon, we decided to go back afterwards with the camera.

Shortly after the picture below was taken, Stephen grabbed on to the trooper's hands and started to dance with him.
Stephen enjoyed the Build-A-Bear experience much more than I thought he would! He was excited to get his bear, and did the whole thing with the stuffer and his bear's heart (you have to rub the heart and do other things with it, like kiss it). And when the stuffer gave it to him to check the stuffing level, he didn't want to give it back to be sewn up! It was a lot of fun for all of us, and probably something we will do again at some point!!
