Teddy Bear Clinic

A few Saturdays ago we went to the Teddy Bear Clinic at Gritman Hospital in Moscow. They only do this every other year so the last time we went Kaity was pretty little. The kids always have fun with this event. They get to take their favorite teddy bear and make them all better at the hospital.
Of course the first thing that Matthew and Kaity wanted to go and see was the dalmation dog. Dalmations are a lot softer than I thought they would be. Then we saw the fire engines and ambulance. The sad part is Matthew still remembers when he had to get his tonsils out and had to ride in the ambulance to Spokane. If you ask him about it he'll say that he had an ow-ee in his neck and had to ride in the ambulance! :( He was only 3. Matthew even chose to take the teddy bear that they gave him on the ambulance.

 Then they met Charlie the hospital bear.

 Here they had to say a fruit or vegetable in every color of the rainbow. Matthew and Kaity both thought of one and said it out loud.
 Then they had teddy grahams and chocolate milk for a snack and coloring pages.
 Then we went to the birth center and they got to weigh their teddy bears
 And then they got a bracelet for them that said if they were a boy or a girl.

 Then we went to the ER.
 Matthew was very worried about this teddy bear. He said that it was his teddy bear's mommy.
Here they got to put that thing on their finger that is supposed to check their oxygen and stuff. Some of the other kids were too scared to try it, but not my kiddos!
