Once again, we had a BLAST at the NC Transportation Museum.
This time I was offered a chance to ride the Easter Bunny Express and I jumped at it! The way the day was SUPPOSE to go was: Train Ride at 10am, walk around and do the crafts/tattoos/look at displays, and then Easter Egg hunt at noon.
How it went was this: RAIN....RAIN.....Train RIde....Tattoos/crafts/displays....RAIN. The train ride was a lot of fun though. There was train information being played over the intercom (couldn't hear it though due to a train full of kids), and free candy! The train ride lasts about 25 minutes, the "conductor" punches your ticket, and then came the bunny. The bunny was NOT scary looking, like many are. He was a pretty cool rabbit. He walked around high fiving and giving thumbs up! He also wore jean overalls, which I found charming.
One word of warning, if you go on the train and it is raining WATCH OUT. It is a very old train. Rain does leak through the ceiling. Get there early and check out the seats for water drips!
After the train ride they had a coloring area, tattoos, and a make a bunny area(from a paper bag). Cute little crafts to keep the kiddos attention for a bit. You know me, I love a good craft! They also hada model train with moving displays! Super cool.
Overall a great day! I really really wish it wasn't raining so we could have had the Easter Egg hunt, but the kiddos scored enough candy for the rest of the year this weekend anyway.
