The Easter Bunny

Last weekend, the Mall of America had their annual Spring Festival, which included events such as a petting zoo, face painting, learning the bunny hop from the Easter Bunny himself, and of course, photos with the Easter Bunny.

Audia had seen the Easter Bunny at Southdale earlier in the week; he didn't have any kids with him and played peek-a-boo with Audia from across the rotunda. She LOVED it. The rest of the day, she said "bunny! bunny!" over and over again.
Chris, Audia, and I met our friends N and D, and Audia's BFF, A, there bright and early (they were giving free bunny ears to the first 300 kids!). Boy, did we have a blast!!
Audia and A both LOVED the Easter Bunny (which is quite a difference from this December, when they met Santa Claus). Audia kept looking up at him to see what he was doing, and mimicking his actions. It was also so cute to see them interacting with the baby animals, and watching the butterflies in the butterfly garden. Audia LOVED getting her face painted. She sat patiently while the lady painted her face like a bunny.If only the paint dried a little bit faster; she of course wanted to touch it right away when she looked in the mirror, so we ended up with some smudged whiskers. She still looks darn cute though, don't you think?
