We’ve been around many, many malls, and we’ve decided that each offers something special in the way of Easter fun. The bunny at Paramus Park was a bit lame in her purple apron, but the fountain with glittery eggs offers a great photo op (for which you don’t have to pay, by the way). See above. Garden State Plaza probably has a great bunny, but you have to swim through big crowds – first with your car in the parking lot – and then on foot once inside. It’s too much of a bother, especially with Baby Boy, who has enough energy to light the state. Jersey Gardens offers bargain shopping and a lovely little corner with the bunny, who is super duper friendly. Baby Boy, who cried with Santa, jumped into this bunny’s arms all by himself. And he didn’t want to say good-bye. Of course, it cost me $22 just to get three photos of the two of them. And the crowds are pretty nasty there, too, on the weekends. We walked miles to get from the car, which was parked by the movie theater, to the actual mall. Ugh! Still, Easter is almost here, and Baby Boy has gotten to experience the joy of the season in his home state. He’s growing into quite the little mall rat (minus the laziness and bad hair), and I love it.
Anyone know of any good places or events for kids celebrating Passover in New Jersey? I’d love to hear about them and share them with readers, so let me know.
