Teddy Bears' Picnic

These cute little bears, T2, T4, and T3 were promised a special treat with five other bears, so here is the picture story of what they all got to do. 

The song words are to one of my favorite songs as a child, The Teddy Bears' Picnic, and here is a link to the music:
Song words are by Jimmy Kennedy

I hope everyone enjoys it as much as I do. 

If you go out in the woods today
You're sure of a big surprise.
If you go out in the woods today
You'd better go in disguise.

For every bear that ever there was
Will gather there for certain, because
Today's the day the teddy bears have their picnic.

Picnic time for teddy bears,
The little teddy bears are having a lovely time today.
Watch them, catch them unawares,
And see them picnic on their holiday.
See them gaily dance about.
They love to play and shout.
And never have any cares.
At six o'clock their mommies and daddies
Will take them home to bed
Because they're tired little teddy bears.

If you go out in the woods today,
You'd better not go alone.
It's lovely out in the woods today,
But safer to stay at home.

For every bear that ever there was
Will gather there for certain, because
Today's the day the teddy bears have their picnic


Every teddy bear, that's been good
Is sure of a treat today
There's lots of wonderful things to eat
And wonderful games to play

Beneath the trees, where nobody sees
They'll hide and seek as long as they please
Today's the day the teddy bears have their picnic


 Patiently waiting for tea.
 My granddaughter Emily poured.

Twenty-five year old Mist Er Bear was excited, because he got to come along, too.  He is my oldest daughter Becky's bear, and lives at Emily's house.  He is sitting at the picnic with T2.

T1 and T7 enjoying tea made by their great grandma Rosemarie.

T5 is giving T7 the apple challenge.  Let's see how he does with it!

Very good, T7!  You are pretty awesome at balancing that big heavy apple on your tummy!

T6, T3 and T1.  T3 thinks he is pretty good at balancing a candy pumpkin on his toe!

Hungry bears, T4 and T6, love great grandma Dort's molassas cookies.  They polished them off quickly.

T8 hid by Mist Er Bear because he didn't feel very good yet.  He had pins in his ears and it hurt.  Kind of like getting pierced ears.

After their picnic tea, they all had so much fun playing.  They had the most fun climbing the trees.

After lots of playing, Grandma made all the bears take a nap before going to Emily's house to do something else that I promised would be just as fun as their picnic.  They whined a little, but they were tired little Teddy bears, and went to sleep after just a little bit of wrestling with each other.

Yea!! We got the pumpkins all ready for Halloween.  From left to right: T1, T3, T7, T6 in back, T2, T5, T8, and T4.
Scary pumpkin

Emily and all the bears.
The bears were definitely up past their bedtime.  I got them into the car, and they were all asleep by the time I got five minutes down the road!  Emily and I had such a great time with them, and I'm sure we will have some more fun times before they get adopted at Christmas.

My thumb has been hurting all day, so I didn't sew on T8's ears, or finish T9.  I will get back to them in a few days.  Keep posted!
