Did you know today is Paddington Bears birthday? He wont tell us exactly how old he is – but I’m sure there’s a large trail of orange marmalade and sandwiches behind him! To celebrate his birthday, Paddington took the time to throw the first pitch out on today’s baseball game between the Chicago Cubs and the Los Angeles Dodgers in Chicago.
If you missed today’s Cubs vs. Dodgers game, and love Paddington as much as we do, it’s time to watch the Paddington movie. We have found that since reviewing the movie, it’s on a constant rotation in our house, and yes – we’re in our 30’s and it has us rolling in laughter every time. Paddington is absolutely one of our favorite bears, and we hope he had a great birthday!
Besides getting to see such a momentous occasion of Paddington’s birthday pitch, 10,000 attendees got their own plush Paddington bear (jealous!) Happy Birthday Paddington!
