Today was the big day: taking the girls to South Coast Plaza for pictures with the Easter Bunny. We did this with Haley three years ago. For some reason, Lexi never went to meet the EB last year. Probably because she was so skittish with Santa the previous winter. We assumed Emily would be thrilled to have the experience, even though she's only 16 months old. Uh, we were wrong. (Much, if not all, of Emily's unhappiness was due to the fact that she had a lip-busting fall at home before coming to the mall. That would have ruined ANYBODY'S morning!)
Famous South Coast Plaza was the scene of the event. We got there early, so we didn't have to deal with long lines of kids and parents. We actually had time to get our bearings and let the kids get the lay of the land.
Lexi was fascinated by the "rabbit hole." The mall folks borrowed copiously from the Alice in Wonderland story...a white rabbit with an umbrella and a watch. Definitely in a hurry...late for a very important date.
I caught this shot of Haley...she looked so grown up to me.
One of Emily's few happy moments of the morning. Here's she's sporting her edgy Converse tennies. So crazy cute.
Lexi and Haley chilling for a few minutes while the parents picked the professional shots. Haley couldn't resist the funny faces.
