Berenstain BearsThere have been several sightings of the Berenstain Bears here in Little Rock over the past week.  For those of you who don’t know, the Berenstain Bears are a family of bears who live in their tree house in the happy community of Bear Country.  I never really thought about it, but I guess it would make sense that Bear Country would be located somewhere here in beautiful, tree-filled Arkansas.

Last Saturday, the Bear family showed up at the Woodland’s Edge community Halloween Fest.  Carina’s friend, Amelie, and her dad, Arnaud, said they saw Papa Bear and Brother Bear enjoying bouncing around on the back of the hayride, and that Sister Bear really liked lobbing balls at the tennis witch.

On Wednesday the Berenstains were sighted at the LUNA Moms Halloween party.  It was a really great party, and rumor has it that Mama Bear was happy to see that she wasn’t the only LUNA Mom dressed up for the occasion.The entire Bear family enjoyed visiting with the partygoers and sampling all the great food.

Friday night, Boo at the Zoo was the location of the next Bear Family appearance.  Our friends Meredith, Elaine and Juliana said that the Bears seemed right at home among all the animals, and really had fun taking a whirl around the “Over the Jumps” Carousel (except for Brother Bear, who appeared to be a bit concerned).  Lots of people saw Brother and Sister Bear having fun Trick or Treating all the candy stands.

On Saturday morning, the Berenstains took in a little culture at the Main Library, where they saw a Brian & Terri Kinder Concert.  Callen’s favorite girl friend, Abbey, and her mom, Nicole, said that Sister Bear got to sing into the microphone with Mr. Brian, and that Brother Bear was wandering all over the place.

Finally, on Halloween Night, the Berenstain Bears came to our house for Trick or Treating.  We were so glad to finally meet them in person, since Carina LOVES reading their books.  They were nice enough to come in and let us take their picture by our fireplace.
