October 16th, 2010

Mom’s next day off is next Wednesday, so we’ve been pretty tired around here. On her day off though, we went back outside and took some pictures. They’re not as cool as the ones at the park, but still pretty awesome. She took the Liv dolls out as well, but she says that I can just post pictures of my friends and I.

The idea behind this photo-shoot came from a book that Mom read while she was at work. It encouraged people to take photographs from different angles.

Some of my friends got to come outside too. Mom let Milton come out because he matched the fall leaves on the ground so well.

He is the right shade of brown!

Foster got to come outside pretty much for the same reason.

Carabella was looking kind of lonely. Mom brought her outside and got some of the best pictures of the entire bunch!

If you would like to see the other photos that came out of this shoot, Mom has them here on our flickr account.

Otherwise, things have been pretty quiet around here. Mom works and we wait for her. Sometimes we watch TV, and other times we read books. I’m hoping that she gets some more free time so we can go and do something interesting like the park again!

This is going to be a brief entry because I only have one thing to share. Mom found a relative of one of our blog readers at Goodwill a few days ago. We’re not quite sure how they’re related, but Mom is glad that she found her.

Meet Emily, a relative of some way of Emmi Jade, the authoress of Emmi Jade’s Cottontail Chronicles. She is a tan swirl Build-a-Bear bunny.

She has been fitting in nicely around here. Ruby, who happens to be the first Build-a-Bear that Mom rescued from Goodwill, has been spending time with her and introducing her to all our friends!

Mom took Robinson and I outside a few days ago and took some pictures that she wants to share. It wasn’t outside to the park, but it was still nice to get out and sit in the sun. We’ll post those later. I hope you’re having a great day!

October 2nd, 2010

It took a few days for my mom to remember that we promised to post the photos that we were going to take. It turned out to be even a bigger photograph session then we thought. Mom took me to the park and took me out of her backpack! Granted, there wasn’t a soul around, but this is a big move!

I’m going to admit that I was a little scared. This was the first time I’ve been out of the backpack when she’s been off the property. Considering that I’ve been with her for over six years, this is a big thing! Caleb came with me like he almost always does.

Here I am at the top of the slide. This seemed to be the only bear sized thing I could do.

But it turned out to be a bit too adventurous for a small bear’s first playground visit. That was fast!

So I sat in the swing for a while. This was much more my speed. Meanwhile, Caleb was running around. He wasn’t afraid of anything—being seen by other humans, heights, or even things much bigger them himself.

Mom chased him around a bit and finally got him to come back to the backpack. It was kind of cold so we both climbed back into the safety of the backpack.

So that was my first adventure out in the world off my property. Mom says that we will try for another place someday, although it might not be till next summer. But I am glad that I got to go somewhere like this at all!

These pictures have been a big hit on my Mom’s flickr page. We’re trying to reach out the other plushie photographers!

Have a good day! I hope everything is going well for you all!
