Thomas & Bob the Builder Shows

I just love watching TV and seeing those live children's events or shows where you see the children and their parents smiling, clapping, laughing along with the characters on stage. Those families always look so happy, I honestly never thought I would be one of those families. Why? Quite simply because with the cost of gas prices rises, the cost of living on the rise and of course the cost of the shows themselves being an "extra" our budget didn't seem to find room for.

Well I just about dropped to the floor when Amy from Resourceful Mommy emailed me on May 27th to tell me that I was the proud winner of the tickets to see Bob the Builder LIVE in NYC. You can read more about my trip here and here. Although I didn't really care for the city life, a bit too high paced for me, I did love the show and so did the kiddos!

I am so happy that having a blog has opened the doors to new and exciting opportunities as well as great connections. I must say I am thankful for a lot of my new Twitter friends, bloggy friends and Facebook friends. Thanks to everyone I am heading with my family to see Thomas The Tank in real life, we will be riding a real train for 25 minutes. I am excited because it is a lot closer to home than the NYC trip was, and the kids will have so much fun.

AJ has grown very fond of Thomas the Train ever since we received a free book from WIC at our last recertification visit.

I will be posting an update for our trip, but we are not going until July and you will need to be a subscriber to Happily Blended in order to read the update as that is where I will have the update featured.
