Anyone Ever see the Peeps Bus Before?

Since Easter is the holiday that I associate Peeps with the most I thought I would share these pictures.

These are from 2003. Logan was in the first grade and Gage was just three years old at the time. Anyways, Logan was in school at the time and Gage & I were on our way home from the grocery store. We passed this brightly colored bus and thought, What in the world? We followed it as it headed towards our house. It ended up going to the elementary school that Logan was at so I hurried and put my groceries away and grabbed my camera and ran back around the corner to school.

The whole school came out to tour the Peepsville Bus and so did we. It is a BRIGHTLY painted bus with little display windows inside. Each window contains a themed scene of Peeps like Easter, Halloween, Christmas and so forth.

I think the one in the picture is a summer beach scene and Halloween.

After each child walked through the bus and exited at the back they received a Peep and a sheet of stickers.

It was cute and I got lots of pictures but these were the only ones that weren't full of kids. ( I didn't want to post any other child's photo without asking permission first:)

It's not everyday that you see the PEEPS bus driving through your town!

Oh now that is really neat!!! I never knew that there was a Peeps bus. What a lucky duck you are. :) Great quick thinking in getting that camera out.

I'll admit that I do not like the taste of Peeps, but think that they are really cute and enjoy buying them for the Easter baskets that I make for the family members that like them.

Hugs and blessings,
