  1. Genevieve Larson says:

    This is the first Memorial Day weekend that we have stayed home. I had no idea what we were gonna do for fun. Now I know!! Thanks for the awesome review and great idea. I love all the fun ideas you pass on to your readers. It’s my nieces 6th birthday so I would like to take her and my daughter to the Irvine park for her special day. If we won it would make the day even sweeter.

  2. Casey says:

    We don’t have any plans for Memorial Weekend yet, so this would be perfect! We have been meaning to make it up to the park for a while now. My boys love the train and I know they would love the bicycle rentals as well!

  3. Leslie keene says:

    I’ve been looking for fun things for my girls and I to do since my husband is deployed and this looks great. Thanks for the ideas.

  4. Dana C says:

    I would love to win so I can spend some quality time with my family. Seems like we have not been spending enough time together lately and this would be a great day! Seems like life has been getting in the way lately for the Family Time (which is NOT a good thing).
    Thanks for the opportunity and have a great day.

  5. Janet says:

    I would love to win this because we have no plans for Memorial Day weekend this year and this would be a perfect day activity for our family.

  6. Carrie Kleckner says:

    Because my family which includes me, (Mom) & 5 guys have NEVER been there! It is also mine & my hubby’s Wedding Anniversary! 20 years! Oldest son is graduating high school in 3 weeks & going off to college & my 4th son is graduationg preschool in 1 week! So this would be a great opportunity for our family to have some fun together!

    • Carrie Kleckner says:

      Did I mention my hubby works on the ‘real’ BNSF trains in San Bernadino, so my 4 boys have grown up loving trains!

  7. Tina duffus says:

    We love Irvine Park too. Our three year old twins love the train , but Momma and Daddy are ready to try something new. Boat or bike adventure sounds so much fun! Pick us, please;)

  8. tana says:

    I follow the Irvine Park RR on Facebook. =)

    My family would love to win because my boys love trains and have been wanting to rent a bike there for some time. We had to keep saying no because I was pregnant, but now that baby’s here, we can finally try it! It would be a fun treat for my middle son, who turned 3 last week.

  9. Erin T says:

    Every time we go to Irvine Park my son wants to ride them so bad! My husband FINALLY has monday off so we want to enjoy some family time together!! Bike riding, boat riding and trains will make for some great and fun memories :=)

    I have been to the park once for a company picnic and it was so much fun. I would love to go back a try some of the activity’s they have, I know my kids would have a blast.

  11. Jen B says:

    The kids and I just went to the OC Zoo there last week, and they were BEGGING to ride the train and go on those “cool-looking bikes”!! This would be so much fun for us, especially since this is one weekend that Daddy usually doesn’t have to work, as well. :-)

  12. Alex says:

    My husband was a dedicated cyclist before family life got busy and would LOVE pedaling around as a family! This would be the best thing for Father’s Day!

  15. Belinda says:

    Everytime I try planning something as a family my husband says we don’t have funds for that /: it really bothers me that I stay at home to save money and we don’t even have family fun day. We would really appreciate a nice weekend all together!

    Hi! Daytrippingmom! I love your website/blog! I’m always happy to always open your e-mails. Love your pictures! It is hard when only your husband works. You have to limit your spending. So it would be great if we get to go to this park. Can’t say I ever been there. Thank You!

    Thanks for your great posting!!!….I appreciate all of the great information that you pass around. we would love to win those tickets and enjoy some great time as always at the Irvine Park. My son loves ridding the train, ponny rides and surely enjoys spending time at the petting zoo. I have never ever ride the bikes at the park so I can be a new thing to do as a family. Thanks Again Aracely!!!

  26. Sylvia Perez says:

    Irvine park is a really fun outing. We have three grand children whom we get to take care of every other weekend and this weekend is the big one. four whole days. it would be great to win and to be able to take them there.

  27. Kristen M. says:

    My hubs and I noticed that we always feel a little blue on Memorial Day, Labor Day….living across the country from family seems to hit us on these long weekends meant for bbqs with your folks. Our kids (and, the hubs and I) would love to have a new adventure this weekend!

  28. Dori says:

    I would love to win! My family loves to spend the day at a park with a picnic. A couple weeks ago we went to OakGlen for the day and had a picnic. Irvine is a drive for us but we have wanted to go since October. If we won the prize my husband would be all about us driving out there. Pick me and I will make sure to email you all our happy excited pictures :)

  35. Karla says:

    My family has not has the opportunity to visit Irvine Park, but they love the bikes. It would make a great activity for a first time visit.

  36. Virginia Espana says:

    I would like to take my wonderful loving grandsonTommy on this bike ride. Tommy or “TomTom” is 5 years old and has autism. He loves to be outdoors and ride his big wheel, he loves any new adventure. He also has a brother Jesse who is 6, and a new sister and brother who are 6 months old twins, Rozalyn and Ryan. His mom is so busy with the twins and every wonderful thing that goes on daily, so it would be fantastic for my little TomTom to get the opportunity to experience riding these big bikes. He doesn’t talk much but he can say “Thank you” and “I love you” which I am sure he would say if he could be the one.

  37. Corrie Randall says:

    My family of 5 (kids, 7, 4 and 3) would love to win this mini day trip! My kids are looking forward to summer and “all the fun trips we have planned”. Well, we unfortunately don’t have anything planned like the previous years. Times are tough and financially we just won’t be able to do much this summer but stay local. So glad to have found your site! Please pick us. I’ve never won anything in my life, but to surprise my family with a day trip from this stay at home mom would be fantastic!

  38. laura says:

    My husband starts a new job on June 1 and so we are trying to cram in some good family times before he is gone all the time again. this would be a great thing to do!
