Dinotrux + Gymboree & a #Giveaway!

Dylan started first grade a few weeks ago. One of my hopes for him this school year is to develop close friendships. He is a person that has a huge heart and loves making friends where ever he goes. Of course that means the social aspect of school for him is one of his favorite things. I still cherish the friendships I developed when I was in elementary school. I want him to create lasting friendships.

Gymboree Dinotrux collection
Dylan has fallen in love with the new DreamWorks animated series Dinotrux. Dinotrux combines a boys 2 favorite things dinosaurs and trucks and delivers an entertaining show that combines comedy, advneture and also teaches about cooperation and friendship.
