Greatest Easter Bunny In All Of Hampton Roads

The flowers are starting to bloom and this very mild winter is coming to an end! I can’t even believe that it is time to start talking Easter again! It is coming early this year, on March 27th, and now is the time to get out and see the cutest Easter Bunny in town! We chose to visit MacArthur Center, as it is the perfect one-stop-shop to get everything we need!

Our first stop was at Gymboree, on the lower level just outside of the Bunnyville set. The friendly staff got us all set up with beautiful dresses and accessories to match! (I got them 50% today, run folks -- sale won't last forever!)

While waiting for the bunny, the kids were able to roll around large plastic eggs and play with the interactive set!
