We picked Grace up and met up with the Tans and the Ongs and the pastor's family not too long after. It was quite busy today, the busiest I've seen MOTAT in a while! It's probably because it was free!
Winston was our guide for the day! We first all went to check out the trains before having a wander around the Kiwiana exhibition.
There were some displays with toys and stuff that was from back in my childhood! It sure made me feel old!
There was also a mirror maze that we had a little wander through. It kills it a little when you just look up or down at the floor to figure out the correct path though.
It was then time for a little break, so we had some lunch in the middle of a little Victorian village! There was a little cottage and a small church, and a little barnyard where some man was doing something with iron!
After lunch we checked out a few more old shops with these creepy looking dummies inside them!
The shops had old washing machines, TV's and other really old things!
There was also an old school too
There was a really interesting area with interactive displays and activities, such as a little earthquake area where you sit in and it shakes violently as if you're experiencing an earthquake.
There were other things like tubes you hit to make music, and other things like that.
The last thing we did before we decided to go was to check out the spaceship!
We didn't really know what was inside it, but it turned out to be sort of like the Motion Master at Rainbow's End!
We then caught the tram over to the other Aviation Hall to check out the planes.
There weren't any passenger planes as I had remembered from back in primary school, but at least there was a Skyhawk!
After, we had to go to pick up our dad from work while the others went to meet up with Leonie at her work in St Lukes.
Aonghas soon had to go off to work so we bought some takeaways for him, dropped him off at work then met up with everyone at this Malaysian in Mt Roskill. We had a table upstairs, but it wasn't big enough for all of us! We could only just fit around the table!
There was some nice food, like beans, squid, and...I can't quite remember what they're all called but I'll let the pictures do the talking!
We all went to J's Tea to finish off the night. I met up with Jade, one of my old pharmacy friends who was just outside. Apparently there were quite a few pharmacy people from Otago there that night!
We all sat around and munched on some fries and kumara chips while we waited for our orders.
I tried a strawberry milk tea with pudding and it was nice, even if Leonie thought it looked girlie!
