Summer is winding down and there’s still time in August for families to squeeze in vacation and travel plans before the kids head back to school. We still have one more vacation trip planned before the school year will be officially upon us but there are many families who have already made BIG BIG travel plans and traveled across the U.S. on day trips and vacations creating some really fantastic summer fun memories! The Jim Henson Company and Amtrak have joined forces for a national promotion! This year it’s the Big Big Dinosaur Sweepstakes, a fun and engaging summertime promotion that will award one lucky family with an Amtrak vacation! Amtrak will launch the Big Big Dinosaur Sweepstakes beginning in August 2012. Families can enter the sweepstakes by logging onto www.henson.com/Dtsweepstakes and following the entry directions for a chance to win a vacation to Chicago and Washington, DC and the opportunity to visit the National Museum of Natural History, featuring exhibits with amazing dinosaurs! Our whole family would love to take a trip like this and I’m sure you can think of someone who would love to too.
