Wow Selene, great list!!  My son once took a pic with the Easter bunny, but my daughter has never done well with characters in costume so we've avoided any type of costumed characters for the past 8 years!!

Thanks, mama! Might also add that Moms In Hawaii will also be at the SeaHunt event tomorrow (!) at Waikiki Aquarium, so I hope everyone will swing by and say hi! ;)  We'll have a keiki activity presented by Keiki Sitters, and a gift drawing and Lani Moo special guest appearance by Meadow Gold Dairies Hawaii, and our Moms In Hawaii crew will also help pass out apples courtesy of McDonald's Restaurants of Hawaii (all awesome sponsors of Moms In Hawaii). So come on down, everyone!
