This year, Emmalee has been super into the Easter Bunny and everything Easter. Four really is a great age. Not only does she get the holidays but she's excited enough to know they are coming.
Last week she saw the Easter Bunny at the mall and it was all she talked about. But I know my daughter and I was not paying $25 for her to decide she didn't actually want to sit with him, so I was super excited when I saw that Roger Williams Park was going to have the Easter Bunny visit!
With the impending snow storm, we packed the kids up nice and warm and set off for Rhode Island. We decided since we were already heading to the park, we should stop by the Zoo as well! Roger Williams Park Zoo is seriously one of my favorites. They have such an amazing assortment of animals but you can still walk the whole zoo without feeling like you need a nap.
We forgot our Lillebaby carrier and our Joovy stroller at home (I just cleaned the car last week and forgot to put them back in) so we rented a stroller from the zoo for only $7! I'm so glad we did because it made it so much easier to scoot the kids around. Emma was really excited because they had stations set up all around the zoo featuring great local companies and animal riddles to figure out!
We finished up and hopped in the car to take the super short 2 minute drive over to Carousel Village.
To celebrate Easter, the Easter Bunny will be at Carousel Village on March 26th and 27th from 10 am until 12 pm and from 1 pm until 3 pm. Adults are free and kids over the age of 1 are only $5. Parents must bring their own camera, but I used my phone and got a couple great pictures. I loved that we weren't rushed through and no one tried to get Emmalee to sit with the Bunny after she decided that in fact, she didn't want to take a picture with him, just like I expected...
After meeting the bunny, we took a ride on the carousel. While the $5 does not include a carousel ride, tickets can be purchased for only $2! It's such a gorgeous carousel and the Bunny takes a ride every hour, on the hour with families, as long as you purchase a carousel ticket!
Outside of Carousel Village, to help celebrate the Easter Bunny visit, there were two really yummy food trucks! Crazy hot dogs with sauteed onions and fried chicken! The food smelled so good but we went off to the Hasbro No Boundaries Playground, which was open for families to play in. It's fully accessible so all kids have fun.
You'll have to share your pictures with the bunny with me!
