We took Jubal to meet the Easter Bunny this past Sunday afternoon at the Statesboro Mall & Tuesday evening, after work/school, to see Ronald McDonald at our local McDonald's "Family Night".
He was so funny when he met the Easter Bunny! While I held our spot in line waiting for pictures, Larson took Jubal up where he could get a good look at him. Jubal was waving and saying "Hi!" the whole time. Smiling. Just before his turn for pictures, Larson let him walk up to the Easter Bunny and even sit next to him. It was the sweetest. I was so happy he wasn't getting upset like he did when we took him to see Santa back at Christmastime, but really seemed to be comfortable with the Easter Bunny.
Then, it was time for pictures. The woman taking them told the Easter Bunny to place Jubal in his lap. This is what happened...
He was NOT going to sit in the Easter Bunny's lap. He didn't appreciate him even touching him. Period.
However, he didn't mind sitting next to him, so we ended up getting some halfway decent pictures after all.
Phone pic of the picture we purchased. I seriously need a scanner. Ha!
When I saw that he was absolutely hating sitting in the Easter Bunny's lap, I asked the photographer to just try letting him sit beside him for the pictures. Glad I did. ;)
MY little Easter Bunny! :)
Jubal had a pretty good day at school Tuesday, so when we heard that Ronald McDonald was going to be at our local McDonald's, we thought he might enjoy going to see him. When we picked him up we asked him if he wanted to go see Ronald McDonald. He shook his little head yes & smiled real big.
There was so many other children there, that we decided to let him eat before taking him outside where most of the commotion was going on. He's always about to starve when we pick him up anyway, so I figured he'd be in a better mood after he ate something.
Ronald McDonald came inside and made rounds to each table while we were eating and Jubal enjoyed watching him perform some little tricks. After our meal, we took Jubal outside to try and get some pictures.
Jubal didn't want to get too close to him. He is so funny! He will talk and wave and act like he wants to play, but when it comes time to get close to these characters, it's a No-Go. Ha!
He wouldn't let Larson hold him in the middle for me to take pictures. He wanted to be on the outside, far away from poor Ronald McDonald who tried everything to get Jubal to want to be closer to him.
Checking ol' Ronald McDonald out.
Larson was trying his best to get Jubal to look at me, but he wasn't taking his eyes off of Ronald.
We left after we couldn't let him run around and play for all of the bigger kids outside playing, too. He got to go home and play with Laney on their swing set & ride his 4-wheeler the rest of the evening.
I took a few more pics of him and Larson before bath time. I love my little boy so much. :))
I love that precious little smile he can give me, too. I hope he starts to feel better because he's had a rough couple of days and has had to start taking Zyrtec & we've had to start putting allergy drops in his eyes. He got those mean old seasonal allergies from me and I so wish he hadn't. Bless his little heart!
I'm making some cute little cupcakes and "Bunny Bait" tonight for his Easter egg hunt at school tomorrow. I love doing little things like that. This weekend can't get here quickly enough! We're dying eggs tomorrow night, Jubal is going to an egg hunt Saturday at Larson's family's house, and Sunday we are having an egg hunt & lunch at my mama's. I can't wait until Jubal is older so he really understands why we celebrate Easter.
HE IS RISEN!!!!
If I don't have the chance to blog again before next week, I hope you all have a Happy Easter!
