NYC Botanical Gardens Christmas Train Exibit










We had a great time at the NYC Botanical Gardens they are located in the Bronx. Grandpa W had heard about it and so we looked it up on the internet and thought it looked pretty neat so we went and checked it out. They had a neat Gingerbread display and the kids got to grind their own ginger, cinnamon, etc. They also got to decorate their own gingerbread cookies which of course they loved. There was also a train puppet show, but the highlight was definitely the train exibit. They had all these building that were replicas of buildings in NYC and bridges with all of these different trains running through them. They do it every year and add more each year. The thing that is so unique about it is that all the buildings and bridges are made completely out of natural things like wood, bark, leaves, moss, etc. It was quite amazing.

I love the pic of H teetering on the edge of the display with the security guard in the background. Looks like it was tons of fun!
