Springtime Fun at Eckert's!

Spring time is finally here! Anyone else always look forward to a season of sunshine and colorful eggs? We may have missed out on some sun, but we had an absolute blast at Eckert's Egg Hunt this past weekend! Eckert's Belleville farm will be running this Egg-citing Easter event every weekend until Easter, so there's still plenty of time to fill your own basket with fun! Here's a peek at all the eggcitement we had:

Is this the official start to spring? I think so! This was Parker's first hunt (and Lucy's first "real" one) ever, but that didn't stop them from diving in like experts. Parker was hesitant in his round and actually started helping another little girl fill her basket! He finally figured it all out during Lucy's age group and helped her fill her bag instead. No surprise, Lucy looked for as many pink eggs as she could find. I loved watching their faces light up as they filled their tote bags, and again when we got home and emptied all of our loot! This was so much fun for them and well worth the ticket price. If you're looking for a budget-friendly springtime activity--this is it!

 Is there anything sweeter than a snuggly baby bunny?! This was my absolute favorite part of the weekend and Preston had to talk me out of bringing one home for myself. The kids just melted over our little furry friend--Parker couldn't contain himself and spent several minutes just dancing and squealing with glee! Lucy had nothing but heart eyes and lots of "aww"s. I was surprised with how gentle they both were and impressed with the patience of all the employees handling the animals. Lucy says this was her favorite part of the festival, too, except for maybe the egg hunting!

When I finally pried their little hands off those snuggly bunnies, we headed over to check out the chicks and ducklings. My kids were over the moon seeing those little yellow duckies! The duckling we held was very talkative and even gave Parker a little nibble kiss on the nose! He was so excited about it! Lucy was a little nervous and preferred to watch the chicks hanging out in their warm trough. This little feature was definitely one of the highlights of our visit--nothing says spring like sweet little baby farm animals!

As always, there was plenty of entertainment outside to keep us busy between events! The kids loved riding the new carousel! Parker did NOT want to leave his "oink", but the fun pedal tractors distracted him from his grief ;)

There are ample photo opps all over the grounds, so of course we got our bunny ears out for a quick snap! Parker is fully embracing the "cheese" these days! The Easter Bunny is available for a posed photograph in the Garden Center as well, if that's more your style.

If you're looking for a fun Easter activity or just needing to get out of the house over spring break, Eckert's weekend festivals are always a hit! You can see their full calendar of events here and start planning your own visit!
