Easter Bunny

It was all Easter Bunny talk this morning in the Reeder household.  "Do you want to go see the Easter Bunny today, Charlie?!"  "Ya, Ya, Ya!"  So off we went.

We made sure to get there early again so we didn't have to wait in a long line. The Bunny waived to Charlie as we waited and Charlie waived back, he even blew the Bunny a kiss!  I thought we would have a similar experience as when we saw Santa- a little sceptical at first but a good picture in the end.  I was soo wrong.  As soon as we started walking towards the Bunny Charlie started screaming NOOOOO! and literally clawed his way up my shoulder and behind my head.  I have never seen him terrified like that before and I really wasn't trying to traumatize the kid.  Even if I wanted to sit him on the Bunny's lap for a "funny" crying picture there was no way I could pry him off me.  So we graciously bowed out.  Charlie even mustered up a wave goodbye and a smile threw the tears and snotty nose.  We found a smoothie station, shared a pineapple kale smoothie and called it a day.  

For fun I asked him if he wanted to go back and try and give the bunny a hug.  He looked at me like I was bat shit crazy and said "No, No, No, No!"
Oh well, maybe next year :)
