Spring has sprung! Time for nicer weather, flowers and of course bunnies. Yeah I know, the weather today doesn’t scream spring but hey it’s Pittsburgh. I don’t know about you but this year is just flying by. I can’t believe it’s April already. So much to do with no time. Which is why, I went out to Ross Park Mall this week, to get pictures taken with the Easter Bunny. No sense in waiting another day, he is a very busy bunny. In our house, we only do the bunny pictures the first year. Here is how it went down.

Me being the crazy mom that I am, I just had to find matching outfits. Seriously, why not? Just because the boys are 5 years apart doesn’t mean they can’t match. So as luck would have it, I had two shirts that were both blue with stripes and were the correct size. Mom for the win! Anywho, we stopped home after work to pick up daddy and baby brother and off we went. We made it there with time to spare, which helped because I made the 5 year old change in the parking lot. He was a little shy but it was quick so he made it through.

So, both boys are wearing their matching jeans and button down shirt. Ain’t they adorable? I make cute kids. I don’t know how that’s possible but it happened. 🙂 As we get to the bunny the 5 year old begins to jump with excitement. He has been asking to visit the bunny but usually we are rushing to get home so we skip it.

You guys I gotta admit, I was in shock. The appointment went smoothly with no crying or fighting. The photographer was fantastic and the assistant made us all feel at home. Very professional and caring.

So now its time to pick a package. The prices weren’t too bad for what you get. We got the #A package which included: 4 – 5×7, 3 – 3×5 & 10 wallets. Plus you get a $20 gift card for Shutterfly and we added the digital download & 4 FREE wallets for an extra $10. So total the price came to $59.99 for 21 pictures plus $20 for Shutterfly with copyrights for all of them. And…. just take a look at the photos.

Seriously how cute is that?

Strike a pose!

They also have some cute frames to purchase at 50% off if you get the bigger package.
