Head to Edaville USA for Family Fun this Weekend! #ad

I’ve partnered with Fidelity & MEFA for this post in support of the U.Fund Dreams Tour. As always, all thoughts and opinions are my own.

EDAVILLE

With school winding down in a few weeks, sprinklers providing endless fun for kids, and the sun beaming bright I’m happy to say – summer is FINALLY here!! Like many other families once the weather gets nice you’ll find my daughter and I spending long days outdoors at different attractions here in New England. During the warmer months there are tons of great family friendly events in and around the Boston area. This weekend we’ll be heading down to Carver, MA to Edaville USA, a special events park with vintage amusement rides sure to keep your kids busy! This weekend will feature a Day Out with Thomas – a family event centered around the Thomas the Tank Engine and a 20 minute train ride! Oh and did I mention Edaville has FREE parking?! Also helpful: all park rides and attractions included in your admission! Be sure to check out their events calendar to see what different children’s characters will be featured over the summer months!

As my daughter wraps up 2nd grade she can’t help but remind me she’s turning NINE in three short months and that she’ll be 18 in just ten years (YIKES!). While I encourage her to stay young, I’m also encouraging her to pursue her passions which currently include acting, singing, and of course, dancing. I’ll be excited to stop by the U.Fund Dreams Tour this weekend at Edaville and help show my daughter that the sky truly is the limit. Through a series of small hands-on activities the U.Fund Dreams Tour is helping kids imagine the endless possibilities their futures hold. While your child is picturing themselves as an astronaut, rock star or teacher in front of a green screen you’ll have the opportunity to learn about saving for college and supporting your child’s hopes for the future.

I hope to see you there!

Giveaway: Boloco Gift Card & Nasoya Tofu

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post with Boloco. I received a Boloco gift card and Nasoya coupons. All opinions, as always, are my own.

I’m not afraid to admit that I don’t like cooking everyday. I’m not the Mom who meal plans and preps on Sundays for the week. I’m sure it would help to be better organized, but that’s just not where I am in my life! One of the worst things to do is decide to eat out and your meal is…bland. Not good!!

I’m a sucker for Mexican food and am spoiled to be surrounded by such yummy Mexican restaurants serving up warm nachos, and burriots that are sure to satisfy. I tend to stick with what I know, and when the folks over at Boloco reached out and asked if I has tried their food before, I was shocked to realize I hadn’t, considering there is one down the street from me in Harvard Square.
