    My friend sent out the best holiday card picture taken at the NYBG Train Show last year, I want to copy her! I know my kids would have so much fun at the show, they might just forgive me for the torture they endure from the Christmas card picture taking:)

    My daughter is 18 months old and we are expecting baby #2 in February. My husabdn and I (especially myself) try to do as much as I can with her before the baby comes. My daughter absolutely loves seeing things in movement, especially planes, cars, trains, and buses. My parents saved a train for my daughter that she can ride on. Although she is still too young, she absolutely LOVES sitting in it and pretending to move on it.
    I have also heard amazing things about the train show and would love, love, love to go!

    What a wonderful adventure for children!! Too bad I’m 1400 miles away and cannot partake. ๐Ÿ™‚ Jacob would just love seeing all the bright shiny objects!!

    We love the Botanical Garden and haven’t managed to go yet this year! This would be a perfect way to celebrate nature and the season and immerse our 5-year-old in the wonder of a NYC Christmas. It’s a lean year for us, so a holiday treat would be welcome!

    I would love to take my 2 Grandchildren Paul and Kelly Catherine to the train show. I am 65 years old and I have never been to the Botanical gardens ever, but have always dreamed of going. This would be a great time to experience this wonderful event and would bring me great joy just to see the smiles and excitement on my grandchildrens faces ! The loves of my life. Nana Dianne

      Thanks for entering Nana Dianne. Unfortunately the contest has ended. I’d still recommend taking your grandchildren. They’ll have a wonderful time. Be sure to attend during the week rather than a weekend. Happy Holidays!
