  • Wow!  Max slept in this morning, not waking until about 9:30 a.m. 

    This morning we went to Ridgmar mall, where he had a grand time at the children's play area:

    Max'd make a wonderful gymnast; in fact, I've wondered if he isn't taking lessons in Russia already.

    Then we went to the Build-a-Bear store, where he latched onto a dog:

    He loved working the controls to stuff his pooch.

    His favorite part was the grooming station.  He'd still be there
    if he could!  He chose black denim shorts and a black "leather"
    biker jacket for Vovik, which is what he named it.  According to
    the people at the store, he was the third or fourth BFC kid to come in
    to create a special toy.
