The Easter Bunny 2012

Yesterday we decided to go see the Easter Bunny. Ryder was very excited for Easter and all the fun stuff that comes along with it, and couldn't wait to take Landon to see the Easter Bunny for the first time. Due to Easter's date changing each year this will be Landon's second Easter before he turns one, but his first was spent in the hospital the day after he was born.

When we got there yesterday at about 4:20 the Easter Bunny was no where to be found. I checked the schedule, and he was supposed to be there from 11:30-8:00. We weren't sure where he was and checked everywhere for a "be back soon" sign. We didn't see anything anywhere and decided to get get some pretzels at Aunt Annie's to pass some time. We got back just before 5:00, and I told Derrik maybe they were taking a break and would be back at 5:00. They had a extended trailer for the movie HOP playing so we entertained the kids with that and sat around waiting. Ryder got antsy so I let him play around in the "Easter Bunny's home" as he called it.

He was really into this fake bunny

Giving it a kiss

Just as we were losing home... it was about 5:10 at this point... I saw him walking out! I told Ryder, and half expected him to clam up and decide he didn't want to do this anymore. Instead he was sooo excited! This was his face when he saw him down below. Just after this he started waving and yelling "Hi Easter Bunny!!!"
There was no one else around waiting for pictures so we got all the time we wanted. Ryder practically ran up to him, and said "Come here Bubby i'll hold your hand". Landon looked at the bunny and started his i'm going to cry face, but we quickly distracted him and he was fine. They did so great! I love that in their picture you can see Ryder holding Landon's arm to comfort him. He is such an amazing big brother :) while we were getting paying for our official picture Ryder went up to give the Easter Bunny multiple high fives and a huge hug. It was the perfect visit with the Easter Bunny. Now Ryder keeps bugging me to dye the eggs... hoping we can hold off so we can actually use them in our egg hunt!
