Failed Attempt #2

Alright, so I don't think we're cursed, but we have definitely had a run of bad luck in our outings as of late. This last weekend, I was running with Oliver and noticed a sign at the local elementary school advertising a Fall Festival there on Saturday night. So, that night, we got Ollie all suited up in his frog costume and headed on over. Well, upon closer inspection, the sign read that the festival actually took place on Friday night. Of course, Christian wasn't about to let me slide on that one, so I had to do some quick thinking on what we could do with our little frog man. I remembered that Old Navy was having something and I was sure the mall would host some kid of Halloween something. I couldn't stop laughing our whole walk through the mall- Oliver was the only kid dressed up (Of course- it's a whole week before Halloween!) and we had MANY on-lookers. We got to Old Navy and all they had was a dinky coloring table! So, we wandered around, looking for something to redeem our night with Oliver and finally settled on the mall playground and a carousel ride. I have to admit, though, he did look awfully adorable and so innocent and shameless in his costume.

There just isn't anything cuter than a little kid in an animal costume. Period. Superheroes and princesses and cowboys are cute, but animal costumes break the cuteness scale.

Cute purse.

I totally agree with Davis. That second to last picture kills me, SO CUTE. Funny about another attempt. I'm glad you pulled it out though, poor little Oliver all dressed up and nowhere to go!

wow so crappy and funny at the same time. I totally agree with davis, NOTHING is cuter than a kid in an animal costume, there is something about the hood or something that just frames their face. oh oliver is good enough to eat.
