Cardinal Bear-Picture a day #10

Today was family picture a day. I asked the kids what I should take a picture of and the winning vote was the Albert Pujols Cardinal Build a Bear. Nobody in my household cares that Mr. Pujols is no longer a Cardinal, so it seems. My son started watching Albert during the World Series and time will tell if he is truly a Cardinal fan or will he come over to the other side and end up a Cub fan, only time will tell. His Dad and Grampy will make it difficult to be a Cardinal fan.
