Welcome to “Giveaway a Day” where you guessed it, we are giving away something fabulous every single day. Ok, maybe not every single day… but Monday – Friday, for the next two weeks (ending Friday, July 9th) we are giving away one fabulous package after another. Think of our giveaway as summer survival. Some of our prizes are perfect for keeping your little ones busy, entertained & in-check (at least for one day) this summer. Other prizes are just for mom… providing a little bit of much needed relief. Whatever the prize is, I can assure that you are going to love it. So, without further ado, let’s start the giveaways…

Today’s giveaway is special. Actually, we like to think that all of our giveaways are special. But today’s giveaway is definitely an exception. That’s because there will be FIVE lucky winners chosen. Yep! We just quadrupled your chance of winning! Ready to find out what our lucky winner’s are going to be taking home?

Imagine if you will… it’s a beautiful summer day, the sun is shining brightly, & the sky is blue. Sounds like the perfect day to spend outside. So why not pack a picnic lunch, gather the kids & head on over to Irvine Regional Park? Nestled among a grove of heritage Oak & Sycamore trees, surrounded by rolling hills and wildlife Irvine Regional Park is full of adventure. & You haven’t even hit the Irvine Park Railroad or the Orange County Zoo yet. Located insideĀ  Irvine Regional Park, the Irvine Park Railroad & the Orange County Zoo are two things that should definitely be on your “summer-to-do” list.

Start your morning off at the Orange County Zoo… it’s open 7 days a week (although it is closed December 25th & January 1st), from 10am – 3:30pm. & Costing just $2 per person (children 2 & younger are FREE), it’s one of the best deals to be had in Orange County. Not only will you find black bears, mountain lions, porcupines, coyotes at the zoo, there’s also a barnyard filled with domestic goats, pot-bellied pigs, doves & more.

After you’ve toured the zoo, just a hop skip & a jump away is the Irvine Park Railroad. Take a train ride through Irvine Regional Park (open every day from 10am – 4pm, 7 days a week except Thanksgiving, December 24th & 25th and January 1st), rent a bike or paddle boat, or go for a pony ride. Whatever you do, it’s sure to be fun.

& For our TWO lucky winners, they will get FREE parking at Irvine Regional Park (& ALL other OC Parks for the rest of 2010 with their new OC Parks Pass), 4 admissions to the Orange County Zoo, 4 Irvine Park Railroad tickets, & 1 bike or paddle boat rental (good up $25 in rentals, no cash value), each. & THREE additional winners will each also receive a prize pack containing: 4 admissions to the Orange County Zoo, 4 Irvine Park Railroad tickets, & 1 bike or paddle boat rental (good up $25 in rentals, no cash value). Wahoo! That’s a total of 5 (yes FIVE) winners, & probably close to $500 of giveaways! Ready to win?
