Kate Meets The Easter Bunny

We took Kate to see the Easter Bunny (for the first time) at the mall the weekend before Easter. The line was long with kids and parents waiting to get their picture taken. At 17 months old, Kate doesn't understand the concept of waiting. She kept grabbing my hand and trying to pull me to the front of the line with her. She couldn't wait to see the Easter Bunny up close and personal. When I wouldn't cut the line with her she would pull me outside the line to another area with a better view of the bunny.

Finally when it was our turn to see the bunny she was really curious. She wanted be near him but wouldn't touch him or sit on his lap. The best we could do was have her sit next to him for a picture.

The photographer used a big yellow daisy as well as silly movements and noises to make the small children smile for the picture. She gave it to Ken to use but it didn't quite work. Instead Kate got up from the bench, took the daisy from Ken and handed it to the bunny. This is why the bunny has a big silly daisy in his hands for the final "mall" picture (left).

The bunny was cute but not very friendly or photogenic. He sat in the same pose the whole time. Ken saw his head nodding off to sleep and jerking back up several times. The bunny must've been up all night...getting his eggs dyed and decorated for the big egg hunt on Easter Day, right?

Hi Jean, Kate is such an angel! I love your baby blog very much. Enjoy it! BTW, where did you get the frame for that easter bunny picture? It looks so cute! I wonder if I could download it somewhere online. Thank you! God bless your little girl! Take care. Posted by: Hongbin at April 5, 2005 10:38 AM
sorry, Jean. There is a typo in my last email address. It should be Posted by: Hongbin at April 5, 2005 10:40 AM
Hongbin, thank you for the compliments. The one picture with the border is actually the picture that the mall photographer took. It was printed with the border and not something we added after the fact. All of the other pictures (without borders) we took ourselves with our digital camera. I'm sure if your look online, though, you can find some free border downloads. I found this one site, Art Borders, with a quick google search: Good Luck! And again thanks for the compliments.
