Choo Choo...Next stop...Mother's Day at the Transit Museum!

Happy Mother's Day to you all-wherever you may be in the world!

Typically on Mother's Day here in the states, families take their mothers out for dinner. Since I have small children, I wanted to do something that could be for all of us. And of course I wanted a reason to get all dolled up!
Brooklyn Transit Museum
 We went to the Brooklyn Transit Museum located in Brooklyn Heights. The neat thing about this museum is that it is literally in a train station!
My children had a blast with all the touch activities they had. Figuring out how electricity is made was a thrill for my kiddies.
The way they set up the museum was fantastic. They had an area where you learn how the tunnels were created and an area where you learn how trains are conducted. There was also an area where you can see all the various turnstiles that were used starting from 1894!
Yes they had a real bus for kids to get on! My lil ones were in heaven as you can imagine. Even I had to join in the fun hehe
My husband and I are both graduates from St. John's University so it was a hoot to see a part of the bus that was used in commuting to the school when it was originally a part of Brooklyn.
 This is the closest I got to having a photo with all three of my babies. I love them...sigh.
 Inside one of the antique trains. This one was from 1916. The seats were sooo comfortable and spacious! I also enjoyed looking at all the ads they placed on top. So neat to see up close!
After visiting the museum we walked around the neighborhood which was stunning and went home for some proper rest and relaxing. Honestly, it was a perfect Mother's Day. I couldn't have asked for anything more than to be with the two things I love the most-my family and vintage.
