Easter Bunny Buddy

We had gone out to lunch with a friend at the mall. I asked Austin if he wanted to see the Easter Bunny, fully expecting the same answer he gives about Santa, "No, I too scared." Instead, the kid was EXCITED about seeing the Easter Bunny! Well, he was off eating carrots for lunch, so I told him he'd be able to check him out after our lunch.
We get done with lunch, walk by and see the Easter Bunny. I figured he'd be scared after seeing him...I mean, a 7foot tall cartoonish Easter Bunny isn't exactly something that you see everyday! However, much to my surprise, Austin BEGGED to sit on his lap and actually talk to him! Brian wasn't with us and I just couldn't bring myself to do this without Brian. I mean, he's actually home now and not stuck in Iraq...he should be able to take his son to see the Easter Bunny right?

So, after a little fit, I get Austin out of the mall and promise to take him to see the Easter Bunny with Daddy soon. Two days later, Austin gets his wish. Again, I figure he would have changed his mind and be scared....NOPE! Surprises me again and goes right up to the Easter Bunny, climbs on his lap, gets his picture taken and gets his sucker!
Later, I asked him why he liked the Easter Bunny, but not Santa. His response?
"The Easter Bunny is happy, Santa is mad!"
Go figure! So, here's the picture we got....guess it pays to be a happy bunny, huh!
