for claire cristie's fifth birthday we went to build a bear. my mom does this when all of the grandkids turn five. i have never been with her before, but i thought it would be fun to go and snap some shots of the ocassion. claire was a sweet, gracious birthday girl and she didn't complain when we hauled her around the mall while i fed my shopping craving. it was a lot of fun and i sure do love this girl.
