Today we went to the Ferrymeade Heritage Park, which recreates a small town built 100 years ago in ferrymeade, complete with a double decker bus, running trams, and a steam engine. Zack is really into trains, so he has been asking to go back since we went on Easter 6 weeks ago.
We got to ride a double decker steam tram today, the last of its kind in Christchurch. There were 7 of them running people around Christchurch 100 years ago, but only one runs today. It was really cool.
Ben and Zack played for quite a while at the playground there, which has a stegosaurus slide and a sea serpent ride on toy.
The weather cooperated nicly, and it was warm and partly cloudy for the afternoon. We had a picnic lunch at the picnic area of the park, which helps to keep costs down. Food at the park is pricy, so bringing your own is just being wallet smart.
