    We have never done Greenfield Village, so that’s why I’d love to win! We do love THF too. :) My {almost} 4 year old is a big fan of all the cars and the train!

    My son and I would absolutely adore this. We don’t always have a ton of free money to do things so this would be extra special if we won :-)

    It was one of my favorite places as a child, and I think H is just getting old enough to enjoy some of the reasons I loved it (and still love it).
