The papa bear was waiting outside the freezer when we got home.
Inside we discovered the baby bear, trapped in ice.
We tried to dig into the ice but it was so hard!
So we tried salt. And then we painted the ice, to pass the time, while the ice melted.
Eventually we gave up. During the night, the baby bear was reunited with papa bear and they played together, swimming in a little blue lake. Then they got little bear-towels, dried themselves up, read a bedtime story and slept really well. *
(* that is the truth for The Older One. The real truth is that baby bear spent the night in the sink.)
