We had an awesome Easter especially because J didn't have class on Saturday. He is in grad school and has classes all day on Saturday. Thankfully, just 5-more Saturdays of that and then he'll be graduating. YAY!!! I for one am looking forward to getting my Saturdays back.
The plan was for us to have a photographer come to our home to take some pictures of us as a family, some of JOE and then of us in front of our home. Then we were going to jet off to the mall so JOE could get her picture taken with the Easter bunny. Well, you know what they say about the best laid plans.
On Saturday, we all hung out in bed for a bit and then went for a walk as a family. Or rather, J & I went for a walk while JOE slept in her stroller. After I got home, I changed and went to get my hair done. On my way home, I decided to get a dress for our pics. JOE slept shortly after I returned and I figured that was a good thing since we wanted her to be happy for the pics. I had to wake JOE up shortly before the photog got there to get her ready. I also fed her in hopes that that'll keep her happy.
It was all downhill from there. JOE REFUSED to smile at the photographer. He tried EVERYTHING. Made faces, spoke in cartoon character voices. NOTHING. The photog has 2 daughters so he's accustomed to working with kids. But apparently, my little JOE was not having any of that. She just didn't want to be bothered. What was supposed to be a one hour session turned into a 2-hour session.
By the time we were done, we went to the mall only to be told that even though the Easter bunny was there until 8pm, they took their last customer at 7pm. We got there at 7:10pm. So needless to say, JOE did not get to take a picture with the Easter bunny :-(. Oh well...she was sleeping anyways and I didn't feel like waking her up again to take pictures so perhaps it worked out for the best. So JOE 1, Easter Bunny 0.
I did manage to take some pics of JOE after we got home. You can't really see it but I put clips in her hair and yes, she was bib-less and binky-less for the photo shoot :-).
Hope you had an awesome weekend!
