Suzuki was kind enough to invite 24/7 MOMS to their first ever MomFest. I (Leslie Pleasants) went for us and joined up with 10 other mom bloggers from around the US in Beautiful St. Charles, Illinois. Suzuki’s goal was and is to hit the mom market more and so they wanted to see what it is that makes us happy when we get in the car with our children… our families. So here is the story of my trip and for your chance to win $170 in product that I chose from wonderful Target!
Ok, to start it off, I haven’t flown since I have had kids. Been about 6 years now. Not sure why. Could be the fact that I am afraid of flying now. I use to love to fly and I still do as long as the plane just doesn’t move. 🙂 Which wasn’t the case on the way there but as you can see the plane did not crash so I made it!! I never knew Chicago to be so beautiful this time of year. All of their trees are leaf trees and they were in full effect for fall. All of their trees were red, yellow and orange. No evergreens and no hill (mountains). Just a flat canvas of color.
I got to the airport and was greeted by a Suzuki Shuttle with the rest of the ladies. We had a fun drive getting to know each other on the way to our hotel which was about 45 minutes away. The hotel (Hotel Baker) was in the heart of downtown Saint Charles overlooking the scenic Fox River. It was really breath taking!! Saint Charles was rated #1 Best Town for families recently by Family Circle magazine. Now I know why.
We checked in and then met down at the reception room which they call the Waterfront Room. So beautiful, so romantic!! I bet there is a lot of weddings there. They gave us our packets which showed us that we were going to be packed full of events the whole 2 days that we were going to be there. We had dinner and watched a Suzuki presentation. Got to know more about what Suzuki is all about. Did you know that if you buy a used Suzuki and it is still under warranty that it carries over to you! How wonderful!! Saw some pretty neat commercials that haven’t been released yet and met some of Suzuki’s Marketing and PR team. Then we had discussion time where they wanted our opinions. It was actually really fun and kind of cool that Suzuki wanted my opinion.
|look at the dual muffler tips… love them! 🙂
So on to the goodies!!! One lucky winner will be able to win all of this wonderful stuff from Target thanks to Suzuki!!! They will ship it right to you too. So you will have to understand that I grabbed the higher end stuff and I don’t have brand names for everything just a picture of what I took. I did make sure to grab everything that could be for a boy or girl and the diapers are size 2.
