We live just down the street from a mall. We find ourselves there a few times a week to play at the play-area or just to go for walks before the stores open. It's a novelty I've quite enjoyed. During the Easter season we went there a few times to walk and on multiple occasions walked past the Easter Bunny only stopping to wave and say "Hi". Being the cheap-o that I am, I never stopped to sit on the Easter Bunny's lap because 15 dollars for a picture is about 14 dollars too much out of my price range.
One morning my friend, her son, Grace and I stopped by to wave at the "Easser" Bunny, as Grace would call him. There was no line and the attendant said "Do they want to sit with the Easter bunny? We won't charge you." Free? Yes, please. They even threw in a few Bunny ears.
Later in the week our playgroup had a potluck egg hunt. Delicious lunch and then a mad dash for candy filled eggs.
