... from my little mail man to you!



Mason's love of the post office runs deep (as I'm sure you know by now -- #postofficeadventuresofmasonb // Picture Perfect Project). It was months ago and I wasn't even thinking of Halloween costumes yet when someone (I'm sorry, I forgot who, if it was you, then THANK YOU!) said "I sure hope he's going to be a mail man for Halloween!" and the idea was born. A couple months ago, I searched Amazon and found the most perfect little mail man costume, complete with a mail sack and a hat. I knew I wanted to have a fun little photo shoot AT the post office, so a couple Sundays ago, off we went. I'm always super embarrassed to take pictures at the post office when people are around (I don't know why, people take pictures of EVERYTHING these days so really it shouldn't be that weird) and hoped that a Sunday afternoon would be dead at the post office and... it wasn't. Luckily Seth was a good sport and let me embarrass him by taking an insane amount of photos inside the post office. Various people came in and mentioned how cute he was and a sweet old lady sat in her car while her husband ran in to mail something while I changed Mason outside our car with the biggest smile on her face.

he was in a mood so we had to bribe him with the "baby iPad" and that we 
would buy him two hot wheels at the grocery store to get him to put on his outfit

The end of the day didn't go as according to plan when a postal worker walked up to me and said "excuse me, what are you taking pictures of?" (I said it was just for fun, that my son loves the post office) and I'm sure I've officially been banned from there... though she didn't say that it was illegal to take pictures of mail trucks, so maybe there's still hope!

  8. I love his costume! He's the cutest mailman around :) And I too would've been hesitant to take photos- I'm always worried what other people think, even though I shouldn't be.
