We have had some amazing weekends this month.
The first weekend was spent in P-Town, walking the beach, eating seafood and going shopping.
The second weekend was spent in new York City, where we gorged on cupcakes and walked over 30 blocks.
And this weekend we spent it at The Nutcracker and Edaville USA.
Edaville is quickly becoming a family favorite of the holidays, and with the newly renovated park, it was even more fun this year than last year.
We got to the park right at 3 pm when it opened so we would have lots of time on the rides before it got too dark. We of course, stopped at the carousel first because we always do and take at least 3 turns on it, then we headed off. We hadn't seen the new Thomas Land so we went straight there first. I was amazed at how many great rides there were! Tyler loves trains, even though we haven't introduced him to Thomas yet, so he was very happy, bouncing along saying "shhoooooo shhoooooo". Emma went on lots of rides by herself, more than I ever expected!
I'm so excited for the addition of Thomas Land and am so excited to see how much more they develop it!
After Thomas Land, it started to get dark so we headed in to one of my favorite areas, the indoor play area! Obviously, I like it because it's warm! But it also has great little kid sized rides, including a merry go round, a pedal powered small merry go round type toy, motorized cars, and a huge ball pit upstairs plus bumper cars, a arcade type area and Santa downstairs! IT's a smaller sized area so it's nice to be able to let the two kids really play and run around a bit!
While all of these are great and fun reasons to visit Edaville, we were really there for the Festival of Lights! The train ride around is Emma's favorite! The trains leave every half hour and take about 20 minutes to go around the whole place. We always stop at the little bakery and grab cocoa and cookies before boarding. I thought this year's lights were much better than last year's! There were either more, or arranged better- it was so fun! Emma was a big fan of all the dinosaur shaped displays!
We had a blast and while I was excited to give away a set of tickets for last weekend, I'm super excited to have ANOTHER family 4 pack to give away again! Edaville doesn't close up until January 1st and with the gorgeous weather expected, it would be the perfect vacation week daycation trip!
