This week only, July 16-20, 2018 Sunny Street Café will be offering a free Dino Pancake with the purchase of an adult entree for children 10 years and younger.

Thank you to Sunny Street Café for sponsoring this post!

Dino-Mite Kids Week is July 16-20, 2018

All Central-Ohio locations of Sunny Street Café are celebrating your kids and their love of dinosaurs with Dino-Mite Kids Week! This week only, each location will offer a range of kids games and activities with a dinosaur theme as well as a free kids’ pancake shaped like a dinosaur with each purchase of an adult entree!

Sunny Street Café Upper Arlington invited my family in to experience what Dino-Mite Kids Week is like at their location. (Activities will vary by location.) This was particularly timely because my youngest has really been into dinosaurs lately and it happened to be the theme of his 4th birthday party just a few weeks prior!

Here are a few highlights you can expect at the Upper Arlington location of Sunny Street Café:

A Free Dinosaur Pancake

My kids both choose the Oreo version of the dinosaur pancake! Other options include blueberry, chocolate or buttermilk. The deal is one free kids pancake with the purchase of an adult entree. (Meat not included.)

If your kids aren’t into pancakes, the Kids Menu includes other dinosaur-themed options like: Triceratops Toast (French Toast) or Pterodactyl Eggs (Eggs and toast) which include a choice of bacon or sausage and a drink for just $4.99.

A Prize Wheel

When you check out, kids can spin the prize wheel to win a prize! My kids won a compass ring and a sheet of dinosaur stickers!

The T-Rex Brain Game

Enter the contest to guess how many dinosaurs are in the dinosaur’s tummy! The winner will get a gift card and other dinosaur-themed prizes!

Dinosaur Shows

The Upper Arlington location will be showing dinosaur-themed shows and movies on repeat in the conference/kids room.

Watch Your Pancakes Being Made

Make sure to ask your server at the Upper Arlington location to watch your pancakes being made on a live video feed!

Coloring Sheets

Dinosaur-themed coloring sheets and connect the dot sheets will be available for coloring!

A Kids Table with Games and Puzzles

Check out the dinosaur puzzles and books on a kid-sized table!

Impromptu Story Times

The Upper Arlington location of Sunny Street Café will offer impromptu story times.

A Coloring Contest

Leave your colored placemat with your name and contact info for the restaurant to hang up! At the end of the week they will pick the best piece of artwork and a prize will be given!

New Kids Cups

This week, Sunny Street Café has started offering a new, reusable kids cup that can be used with or without a straw! These cool cups are also available for purchase.

Tasty Meals for Adults, Too!

My husband and I were stuffed when we walked out the door! This is a solid breakfast spot – dinosaurs or not! If you’re looking for a classic breakfast and kids meals that won’t break the bank (I’m super happy about the fact that they include a drink!) this is your spot!

        

Dinosaurs aren’t going away any time soon 😉 but this deal is! Head over to your nearest Sunny Street Café for Dino-Mite Kids Week before it goes extinct! I’m sorry, I couldn’t resist! 😉

5 of the Best Things About Ohio

Spread the Love
  • 62
    Shares

These are 5 things we love about the great state of Ohio!

Thank you to Bob Evans for partnering with us on this post!

My husband, my kids and I were all born in Ohio! While my husband and I have lived in other cities and states, we both eventually moved back to Ohio and have come to love this state for all the great things it has to offer! Here are 5 of the best things about Ohio:

1. Lake Erie Has A Lot to Offer Ohioans

Boy on Lake Erie beach

I grew up in Northeast Ohio and took Lake Erie for granted for most of my life. But after having kids, my husband and I started searching for vacation spots that didn’t require flying or a long drive in the car. We were still craving being at the beach and by water, so we started to explore Lake Erie. We have vacationed at Lake Erie for the past three years now and we have made many treasured memories with our young kids. In just a 2 hour drive from Columbus you can enjoy beaches, lighthouses, boat rides, water skiing, fishing and fresh fish to eat!

2. In Ohio You Can Experience a Variety of Landscapes

If you’re not from Ohio, the variety in landscape within this great state might just surprise you! From the hills of Hocking Hills and Southern Ohio to the rolling cornfields of Amish Country to the beaches of Lake Erie to the skyscrapers of the major cities, no matter what your scene is, you can find it in Ohio. It doesn’t take too long to get from one view to the next! You can easily spend your summer weekends road tripping through Ohio and experience a wide variety of scenery!

3. Ohio is the Birthplace of So Many Amazing Restaurants

Buckeye Hotcakes at Bob Evans Restaurants

We enjoy and take full advantage of so many local restaurants! The Ohio food scene is growing and with Ohio’s agriculture, we are able to enjoy so many local, seasonal ingredients. Living in Columbus we also enjoy being a “test market” for new products before much of the rest of the country! While there are tons of local food options, it can be easy to forget that many large restaurant chains also had their start in Ohio!

Bob Evans himself started his own restaurant in Rio Grande, Ohio nearly 65 years ago! Bob Evans was a generous man who was fiercely proud of his home state of Ohio! In celebration of Ohio, Bob Evans Restaurants has added Bob Evans Buckeye Hotcakes to the menu for a limited time and is calling all Buckeyes to share their state pride on social media by posting a picture or video of whatever it is that makes them proud to be an Ohioan, using the hashtag: #TheOhioWay. Make sure to hop over to my Instagram page where I am hosting a giveaway! You could have a chance to win a $25 Bob Evans gift card!

4. Ohio Has a Vibrant Capital City

If you already follow my blog then it’s no secret that we love Columbus! Columbus is the Midwest’s hidden gem, offering all of the amazing things about a large city, without a lot of the stressors of urban living. I lived in one of the top 5 largest cities in the US for 4 years and when I moved to Columbus I traded away the frustrations of parking, traffic jams, high crime and high costs of living while still enjoying all the benefits of a big city: theater, museums, job opportunities, a vibrant food scene and so much more! When it comes to things for kids and families to do, there is really no end in sight!

5. In Ohio You Experience All Four Seasons

I can’t believe I’m about to say this because I am not a huge fan of Winter: but what is it that makes Spring in Ohio so sweet? The fact that we survived the preceding Winter! And when it comes down to it, I am actually happy that we get to experience all four seasons in Ohio. As much as I like warmer weather and sunshine, I do love the beauty of fall, my kids love playing in the snow and I have been attempting to try to embrace each season and enjoy the rhythm that the changing seasons naturally builds into our lives.

We are proud to be Ohioans and these are just 5 of the things that make this state GREAT! What do you love about Ohio? Make sure to share your Ohio pride on social media using #TheOhioWay!
