This year, our Easter weekend was very busy. We swore that we wouldn't take Bryson to see the Galleria Easter Bunny, but Easter weekend snuck up on us, so we didn't have a choice. Since I was off work for Good Friday, we thought that Friday would be a good day to take Bryson to see the Easter bunny. It turned out to be a great time. The line was not long at all! However, it was a terrible experience, again. For some reason they thought it would be a good idea to have the Easter Bunny in the food court next to carousel. That is a horrible location. It was so loud and once Bryson saw Chick-fil-a, all he wanted was french fries. We were 4th in line so we didn't think it would take that long. Boy were we wrong! The lady that was running the Easter Bunny pictures kept taking all the kids, picking them up, getting in their faces, kissing their cheeks and talking to them. Just sit the kid in the Easter Bunny's lap, snap the picture and move on! So when it was our turn, Bryson was fine. He waved at the Easter Bunny and looked really excited to see him. Then the creepy lady picked him up, got in his face (thank God she didn't kiss his cheeks), and made him cry. I was so mad! Her solution was to have him sit in Robert's lap and take the picture. Um, no! Why would we want to be in Bryson's Easter Bunny picture! So the lady tried to take Bryson from Robert, but Robert took him right back. Why would you take a crying child from their parent?! Anyway, Robert sat him in the bunny's lap, they snapped a picture and told us we were done. We didn't even get a chance to try and get a good picture. Bryson wasn't scared of the Easter Bunny, he was scared of that crazy lady! She said that we were done because there other kids in line and they didn't need to see Bryson cry. Has she never seen a kid cry when they visit the Easter Bunny or Santa? Anyway, it was a terrible experience at the Galleria, again. Next time I'm going to plan ahead, even if that means driving all the way to Leeds to go see them at the Redneck Riviera (which I don't want to do). Here is Bryson's Easter Bunny picture for this year!
After the consignment sale, we had to rush back home so we could dye Easter Eggs and get ready for our friends wedding that night. My mom offered to spend the night at our house so we could go have fun at the wedding, and Bryson would still be home for the Easter Bunny. Bryson was more interested in dyeing eggs this year. His favorite color was pink! Hahahahaha! He really did enjoy it though.
