We have had a ton of amazing giveaways in the last few weeks to celebrate Mother’s Day. While they have all been wonderful, I have been just dying to share this giveaway with you!
Many people ask me why I am a frugal shopper? Why do I spend time doing what I do? Why do I take time out of my day to share amazing deals with my readers and friends? Why do I try to save money ALL THE TIME?
There are many answers to this question. But the main reason is this: So I have money to spend on the things that make life extra fun! Period. I’m a mom. I have two amazing little girls and we don’t have a ton of extra income. But what I have found is that by saving money on the necessities in life, I am able to spend some money on the extras. The fun stuff. The stuff that makes my children’s eyes sparkle. That is why I do what I do.
For Mother’s Day this year, I am taking my kiddos to a Day Out With Thomas! Seriously! It is my Mother’s Day gift to them. After all, seeing my children’s faces light up when they see Thomas for the first time will be Amazing! They will have no idea. I won’t tell them we are going. We will just get in the car and drive up to Heber. And they will FREAK OUT! They are HUGE Thomas the Train fans (aren’t all kids?)! Honestly, my little 3 year old has her own set of railroads and three different Thomas Engines. Plus a few more characters and accessories to play along with too.
Want to join us? Thomas will be up at The Heber Valley Rail Road from May 24th – 27th! What a perfect way to spend Memorial Day Weekend! You can purchase tickets HERE!
In addition to Thomas, there will be a Thomas & Friends Imagination Station where you can Build with Mega Bloks and participate in other Thomas-themed activities including stamps, temporary tattoos, hands-on arts & crafts, and a Thomas & Friends storytelling and video viewing area. Plus there will also be a petting zoo, miniature goolf, bounce houses, face-painting, magic shows, and more!
10:30 am (excluding May 24th), 11:15 am, 12 noon, 12:45 pm, 1:30 pm, 2:15 pm, 3:00 pm, 3:45 pm, 4:30 pm, 5:15 pm, 6:00 pm (No 5:15 pm, or 6:00 pm on May 26th or May 27th)

My two year-old son loves trains…and Thomas! He was recently diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder (that may also affect his 9 month-old brother), so we are still working on accepting the fact that our family will only ever be a family of 4. This would be a fun activity to do all together.
