If Great Grandpa Wurm was still around, I am sure that they would be two peas in a pod and be lost in his basement for hours with ALL the trains that he had. Every time Mason starts playing with trains I feel like Grandpa is right there with us. After visiting for a bit we headed off to the local outlet mall to ride the train. As we bought our tickets we learned that they were running an Easter Train. SO of course we got tickets for that.
First we rode the train around the mall and through all the different sections. Finally it dropped us off in front of an empty store. Once you entered it was like a whole different world. First Mother Goose read us an Easter story. (Mason refused to sit and listen) Then they called for the Easter Bunny to come.
Mason did not want to take a picture with me.
Here are a couple of the cousins and Mason with the Easter Bunny
So for any of you that know about the money that you spend to get pictures with Santa or the Easter Bunny will be SHOCKED that there was no one trying to sell you pictures or charge you for taking your own. They let you take as many pictures as you wanted. They made it such an awesome experience all around. Each child even got a goodie bag with a coloring book and crayons as well as a chance to get a tattoo.
They were selling bunny ears to benefit the local children's hospital so of course we bought a few : )
The Easter Bunny even walked around after all the formal pictures had been taken.
Think Mason had fun???
I even got to take a "selfie" with the bunny!
We had a great time and that $5.00 train ticket was well worth it!!! Thanks to Uncle Norman for the idea and to Wendy, Sydney, Gary and Kyle for going with us.
After the ride was over we got a little treat before hitting the road....
Got to watch a real train on the way home...the roads went from this to
This very very quickly!!! Crazy OHIO weather! Thanks to Pa we made it home safe and sound.
