Granny and her girls had a Teddy Bear hospital at Urrbrae House. Where they had the Teddy Bears Picnic.
Urrbrae House is an Historical house that Peter Wait built for his wife. It is a lovely large home that is owned by the University today. It is open to the public and so are all the grounds. How lucky are we to have such beauty and history for us to enjoy.
This is the second year, that the staff and volunteer's at Urrbrae house house have given a Teddy Bears Picnic to children, in the School holidays, and it was free.
The Hospital was in the dining room on the long table. Of course I came along to tell the bears that Granny does not hurt. I know because she fixed my paws 2 weeks ago.
We had needles and treads, band aids, bandages, stingoes, medicine, an exray, Honey to give them after they had been brave.
This little girl had her poor panda with his head coming off. Granny needed to sew that one on very fast.
We had lots and lots of children....
Plus 5 nurses and Doctors to mend the teddies. My they were busy all day.
This photo is before we started. Can you see all the little pots of honey we gave the children to take home for medicine for their bears. I did sneak a few myself.
They had beautiful ladies in period costumes that were helping the children. They looked so pretty.
Out on the lawn the played throw the ball into the clowns mouth. Then they had to find Goldie Locks and the Three bears in the sensory garden.
Plus big bears, small bears, rabbits, mice, foxes, dogs, cats...... I hope I remembered them all. "Hey Granny ( What other animals did we have)". Y'er,she thinks that's all.
I do hope I can go with Granny next year. Granny said that I was so good, she even might make me a nurses hat.
Phew!!!! is was a hot day, We came home and had a smile in our hearts because it was the best day.
Yummy Toast, Peanut butter and Honey for supper.
See you all next week.
