Guess Who Will Love Riding in the Car Now? $200 value

Bloggy Giveaways Quarterly Carnival Button

Okay, I’m done counting!  Whew!  Quite the workout.  The Tinkerbell Mix Max goes to D!  And the SpongeBob set goes to Shane!

Congratulations. Look for an email from me.
I don’t know how my parents did it.
Seriously.
Our summer vacations were dominated by road trips.  
One of my first memories is of a very long car ride to Disney World, back in the 1970′s.  It must have been in the winter because our little Ford Pinto didn’t have a heater and we kept warm with quilts. 
That worked out great until my twin sister and I decided to ‘play horsey’ with our older brother. We used his belt for the reigns.  
Around his neck.  Great fun, until he puked chocolate milk.  All over the blankets. That were keeping us warm.  My next memories are of a cold car ride to Disney World.
Because we entertained ourselves.
Not something my kids excel at on our road trips these days. We’ve got the whole audiovisual thing going on in our minivan and a plethora of travel paraphernalia. 
And I’m not about to change it. Because I like progression.
Call me a sissy.  A weenie.  Just don’t take it away. M’kay?
And because my Momma taught me to play nice and share, I want your last traveling summer getaway or trip to Wal Mart to go well.
I’m giving away TWO amazing prizes at a $100 value each!
I will choose two random winners.  One will receive a brand new Disney MixMax Video MP3 Digital Media Player.  Tinkerbell edition.  It holds 240 songs and plays 16 hours of video.  It’s rechargeable and comes with software, earbuds, and a wrist strap! Value $100. Perfect for those long car rides!
The other random winner will receive two $50 prizes, for a total value of $100.  Both of these items are brand new and made by Npower’s Nickelodeon line, Sponge Bob edition:  A digital music player (MP3) that holds 250 songs, comes with software, ear buds and is rechargeable AND a flash digital camera that holds approx. 79 photos.  It has sound effects, an LCD screen, software, adhesive skins, a wrist strap, cables and much more!

    This reminds me of one of my favorite childhood memories. I was an only child, and my dad (bless his heart) was always trying to come up with new and fun things to do during the summer. One weekend he decided that we should take a 4-hour drive to Catskills Game Farm so that I could bottle-feed baby animals. I had a great time, but the smell of the place made my mom sick. A few minutes into our drive home we had to pull over so she could throw up. My dad and I spent the rest of the drive home loudly and boisterously singing “Mommy threw up in the grass!”

    I subscribed to your feed, because I’m a sucker for double entries! I think my kids would love the Tinkerbell Mix Max Player. Thanks for a great giveaway!

    we always traveled when my son, now 38, was little. with one child it was easy. one time in canada he had to pee and we were in the country so we decided to pull over to the side of the road. The grass was cut all the same length but, guess what, there was a ditch under all that. The van tilted and there we sat. Of course my son peed and we had to wait for someone to come along to help us out. Not being an english speaking community and we spoke no french our hand signals finally got a tow truck out to help us. What nice people and no charge. After that we always carried a pee jug for him.

    Haley loves Tinkerbell! :) Griffin is a Sponge Bob fan. While I’d hope Tinkerbell’s “fairy dust” helps me with a Tinkerbell win, I’m grateful you’re so generous to offer us all a chance to win! :) Dreams do come true!

    Ohhh… Even though I have two girls, I’d say SpongeBob: this way if we win, they won’t have to fight over the prize :)

    Oops So Sorry!! I’m new at this, but Tinkerbell would look so cute displayed in my new logitech speakers I won for an MP3 Player and I don’t have an MP3 Player, since I’m into computers not gadgets LOL. But I have to admit those speakers would sound a lot better if they had a MP3 player attached. Right now the sound is worse than gray noise, so quiet!! Well anyway I did enjoy your blog. Back in the day when the kids we were That family so happy to see it found a new loving home!!Have a wonderful day e1!!

    I remember singing 70s tunes in the back of our station wagon with my two older sisters and my poor brother stuck in the middle! Boy could we have some of this awesome technology then! Long hot car rides is really all I remember, my father was in the army, so no REAL vacations for us!
    I have subscribed, and either give away would do, I have 6 kids, so it really doesn’t matter which one!

    I love your blog! My family is THAT family too! I subscribed in my Google Reader, and posted your button on my blog. I would love the Spongebob camera. We have one old digital camera from when we upgraded that my two boys have to share. My 3 year old loves to take pictures, and my 7 would love it too if he could ever get the camera from his brother. Having another would be great!

    We took our first 10 hour long trip in May. I don’t know what we would have done without the dvd player. My girls like Spongebob!! thank you!

    I dread car trips. My twin 3 year olds do great on them–me is another story!!! We drove from WA to Jersey and had a pretty descent trip, other than the emergency hospital room visit for me, a UTI for one of my daughters, and then on the last day-the stomach flu. But we are safe and sound and moved into our new home!!!

    Definitely Spongebob. =)

    I laughed so hard when I saw this page! I'm getting nervous about taking a road trip from Rhode Island to Florida in a couple of months with my husband, my parents, my sister, her husband and their two kids (ages 2 & 4). My parents used to take my sister and I on that same trip every year and I don't know how they maintained their sanity.

    Good heavens! The Matron doesn’t know how to insert buttons or she just might. Can she steal some readers? Spongebob. . . and she is so entering the vacation contest.

    We always went on a three week car trip every summer. I spent most of the time laying down in the backseat because I was car sick…but I have a lot of good memories. I would like the SpongeBob.

    My girls love Tinkerbell and Sponge Bob :D

    I added you button to my blog :)

    I don’t know how my parents did road trip vacations either. I do remember going almost every summer and winter though. Vacations are exspensive, I’m thankful the girls love the beach as much as I do or we’d be in trouble.

    Hugs, Danette
