Smokey Bear came to one of the schools where I teach so I thought it would be a great opportunity for my kids to meet Smokey.
They talked about it for days and were so excited when the day finally arrived.
However, once they actually saw Smokey in person...not so exciting. Kylee barely touched him (despite wanting to give him a hug and kiss to make his paws feel better. They were burned in the fire, if you remember) and Krysten screamed when I brought her near him.
