"If you go down in the woods today, you're sure of a big surprise!"
Well maybe no surprises today, but definitely on July 10th. This Friday is the official Teddy Bear Picnic Day! It's time to celebrate that classic, and slightly menacing, children's song. Really, that song used to scare me a little! But don't let my unresolved childhood issues stop you from having a fabulous afternoon. Grab a blanket, some PB&J, and your favorite stuffed bear and head to the park.
