Win tickets to a Day Out with Thomas at Greenfield Village!

I know many of you have children that love them some Thomas!  I've seen the train tables and other paraphernalia in your homes.  I've seen you enjoy the program with the help of George Carlin, Alec Baldwin and even Ringo Starr.  So now with my help you can take your lovely little offspring to see the real thing at Greenfield Village...

All aboard for the best birthday party ever! Thomas the Tank Engine™ is coming to town to celebrate with all of his fans. Thomas, the beloved and courageous storybook engine, is set to roll into Greenfield Village for the Day Out With Thomas™: The Celebration Tour 2010, presented by HIT Entertainment, a worldwide leader in children’s entertainment, and sponsored by MEGA Brands, a leading toy company.

Hi Stacy,

How cool is this? It's too bad your girls are too old. I follow you on Facebook and I think on Blogspot as well....

As for who I would take...that's a no-brainer. My 2 year old little man, Quinton. He loves his train table and loves Thomas when we can catch it.

I would take my darling granddaughter to see Thomas the Tank! She really LOVES the show and always asks her Nana (ME) to watch it with her! She really deserves to go, because it only took 3 days to potty train her and I'd LOVE to give her this special prize!

Hey Stacy-
I hop on your blog to get some good reading and sometimes jump into these contests. This Thomas adventure would be extra special to my 5 year old...Alivia. She would be taking her 5 year old boyfriend/life-long friend, Brayden, to see his favorite Thomas.
