Thanksgiving Point family pass giveaway

This giveaway is now closed, thanks so much for entering!  The winner is Tiffany, who said: Choose me! Pick me!  Congratulations.  email me asap like: allisonATpetitelefantDOTcom

Today’s post is sponsored by Thanksgiving Point, and if you live in Utah, you want to jump into this giveaway asap.  I’m giving away an annual family pass to Thanksgiving Point.  Thanksgiving Point is the place I take my kids when none of us can take the winter crazies anymore and we want to go visit the dinosaurs.  It’s the place we go in the summer to pet the farm animals, and the place we go in the fall to celebrate Halloween.

What I’m saying is, Thanksgiving Point is our home away from home when we all want to get away.  An annual pass is the answer to all your cabin fever worries.

  60. Melissa Kelley :

    I love the SMELL of Thanksgiving Point – it smells like “country” instead of “city”, and the smell suits the gorgeous gardens, the adorable animals, and the UNDENIABLE Dinosaurs! Great Post! :)

    The Secret Garden is a wonderful place to relax and enjoy the quiet, surrounded by the incredible flowers. My son proposed to his now-wife there and the beauty of the place and event took my breath away. (All the gardens are lovely, but the covered path leading to the Secret Garden is SO Frances Hodson Burnett!)
