There was a BEAR named CLAIRE. She had two sisters BLAIR, CHER and a brother PIERRE. CLAIRE"S family planned a picnic this year. Mama BEAR had to go to MARKET SQUARE which was very RARE. She gathered the children to give them TRAIN FARE,off they go to the train station in a PAIR. Nearing the train CHER screamed, riding the train was a SCARE. Mama BEAR gave CHER candy to calm her down which the others thought was UNFAIR. Mama BEAR was UNAWARE she only a had one PEAR which the others had to SHARE. Up the STAIRS they go to catch the train, Mama BEAR was UNAWARE that PIERRE was'nt THERE. At the end of STAIRS WHERE PIERRE STARRED, crying that the STAIRS was a SCARE. Back down the STAIRS Mama BEAR and the others go to get PIERRE and he was no WHERE. In DESPAIR Mama BEAR said a PRAYER. She looked up the STAIRS and THERE was PIERRE. "Stay THERE PIERRE, Mama BEAR will be right THERE." Once up the STAIRS with no time to SPARE she paid THEIR TRAIN FARE. They arrived to the MARKET SQUARE, to meet Papa BEAR. Mama took out the picnic food list and begin looking at prices to COMPARE. She was UNAWARE that Papa BEAR, CHER and PIERRE WHERE sleeping in a CHAIR and BLAIR and CLAIRE was eating a chocolate SINCLAIR. The store clerk said "Good morning Mama BEAR, would you like to donate money for the County FAIR?"Her reply was "Well, I DECLARE, the County FAIR? Why yes,Susie BEAR I laid two dimes right THERE. They finally arrived home WHERE everyone was excited about the pinic. With no energy to SPARE, no one was UNAWARE that Mama BEAR had fallen asleep in the ROCKING CHAIR. Papa called DARE To EAT Pizza Parlor WHERE the pizza slices are SQUARE. He combed THEIR HAIR, found them some clean clothes to WEAR, gathered the CAB FARE and before they knew it they WERE THERE. THEIR picnic basket was filled with beary flavored soda, honey and PRICKLY PEAR pizza,and purple PEARS. It was time for the picnic, Papa BEAR called the children to help PREPARE. They spread THEIR blanket on grass to SHARE. The following morning Mama BEAR arose from the ROCKING CHAIR WHERE she slept through the night, THERE she STARRED, and noone was THERE. She called Papa BEAR only to HEAR that he was working and the chidlren were at DAYCARE. Mama BEAR combed her HAIR, looked for something clean to WEAR and cooked some eggs with a AVOCADO PEAR. Soon the children rushed into the house with THEIR picnic adventure to SHARE, "We wish you WERE THERE Mama BEAR." "Let's plan next year." Jackie Thomas 1/6/13[contest entry]
