To Pose or Not to Pose

What is it with people in big costumes that screams photo opportunity? I don’t know what it is but over the last while I have found myself seizing this photo opp moment and posing my little heart out. I will see someone probably not getting paid near enough in a giant weird get up and I run to pose and grin. I blame instagram.


While I know the norm is to shove your kids near these strange minimum wage employees. I find I usually just get in the picture. For most of these I am embarrassed to say my kids were right by me, but the dirty looks and screams from them to not make them get anywhere near these people is why it is usually just me.  Just imagine me at Disneyland.


Posing With Characters

Do you run and slap on a silly grin whenever you see one of these guys or am I the only one?


*The Rita’s Italian Ice is my favorite because if you look closely you can see the dudes face in the right eye!

    I think they’re fun. My 3 year old is scared of them. He even ran away from the Cat in the Hat at the PBS (KBYU) event. He hides behind me and whimpers. I need to show him this Rita’s Ice to let him see the person inside. Fun pic!

    I usually scream and wave as I am driving by. But after seeing your collection
    I might want to up my game…
