My Suzuki Trip and YOUR chance to WIN $170 worth of Target Merchandise!!

By Leslie Pleasants
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. 

The next day we had breakfast and then headed outside.  I knew we were going to be driving some vehicles, just had no idea which ones.  They had them all lined up on the street ready to go with a whole crew of people helping us out.  Since I can drive a stick I got put in the first car.  Little did I know at the time it was the fastest car of the 6.  Got in that thing and I forgot I was a mom again.  All of a sudden I was single Leslie in a sports car, sun roof open, no kids in the back, and a girl sitting next to me as we were chatting away.  They gave us maps to our next destination spot.  There were 3 different destination spots and each time we changed to different cars. 

look at the dual muffler tips... love them!  :)

One of the spots was to Target where they had set up a scavenger hunt.  They gave us each gift cards and told us what to get.  During the scavenger hunt they would tweet us extra things and if we got them we would win something (more gift cards).  In the end they gave winners for who came in the lowest,  who came in to $150 and for other unique items.  Somehow I missed those and I ended up spending the most.   Good for you though cause all those items that I got will be what you can WIN!  So hold on and I will tell you in just a sec.  :)

Going into this I had no idea what to expect.  I really didn't know much about Suzuki except they made motorcycles.  Thanks to my husbands bad, expensive hobby.  :)   In the end it was Suzuki that wanted to know from us moms what we wanted out of our vehicle.   What makes us happy?  What are the must haves in our vehicle?  I know mine but surprisingly all 11 of us ladies did have different "important" features on a mommy vehicle.  But the number one thing was safety.  Which Suzuki covered with high ratings and airbags galore.  I was also very amazed on the interior quality of Suzuki. They had a test for us of the different interiors of  Mercedes, Audi and the Suzuki Kizashi(the fast one that I really really liked) and I got them all wrong.  They had 3 steering wheels and you had to pick which one was which, doors, consoles, etc...  It was crazy. 
Besides all of that I met some great people.  Had a wonderful time and I am so glad that I did it.  Oh, did I mention that I did this when my Preschooler and Kindergartner both had picture day and daddy had to do their hair.  :(  Good thing Suzuki kept me busy so I didn't have time to think about it.  :) 

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. 

Size 2 diapers, Diaper bag, Wipes, Sippy cups, Graco Literider Stroller, Travel Mirror

    The most important thing besides safety is size - we are chronic over-packers, and we also tailgate out of my car, so it has to be big enough to haul all of our junk around!

    What I look for in a car is plenty of room and comfort. It needs to fit you well, such as you need to be able to see good out of it while sitting in a comfortable position and you must be able to reach the peddles comfortable. This might sound odd to some but there are cars that I had to pass up on because my legs are short and I would have to stretch to reach them ( not very safe).

    Besides safety, space is a huge concern. Taking a trip is hard because I have two boys under 3 and just putting a stroller in the car takes up a ton of space, and then we have to put luggage and other necessities. So, a back cargo area is very important.

    I am an e-mail subscriber and the most important thing to me in selecting our family vehicle was easy access to the backseats. On an average car trip I end up reaching back to my three kids many, many times to pick up dropped toys, open up snacks, and so on. Being able to easily reach them makes my life much easier.

    The most important thing when choosing a vehicle is it MUST be a 4X4. I live in the mountains in a very rural area in SW VA and the snows in winter would make it impossible for me to get to work @ 7:00 A.M. without 4 wheel drive.

    I'm not sure there is a MOST important thing. With any vehicle purchase there should be a checklist of features that the buyer wants or needs. For me, and discounting safety features, some necessities are size (big enough for the whole family), height (I have to jump in from a wheelchair, so can't climb up), and transmission (I need an automatic since I can't use my feet). I also demand a moon roof! (For real.) :)

    I'm a subscriber. The most important thing to me is size. It has to be big enough to fit a car seat, stroller and trunk full of groceries without feeling cramped, but it can't be so big that it takes half a tank of gas to go anywhere. Thanks for the giveaway!

    One of the other main things I look for is space for the extras in the back (stroller, bags, etc!), all the typical features that most people like - but one of the things we just really looked at was the vent systems in the back. One car we looked at didn't have anything other than the bottom vents... which didn't even get near baby in a car seat - so it's those things that help with picks! Real life using it not just what's tested at the factory.

    AFter safety the most important thing is design. I need to sit in the car and have everything in reach that needs to be in reach, be able to see the backseat where the kids are and be able to see clearly out of all the windows. I recently rented a car while mine was in the shop, the back seat was so high I had almost no rear view at all. Design is everything after safety.

    A very important feature that I would look for in a new car is the amount of space for each of my passengers so we can feel comfortable. Space is important in the trunk as well to carry all of our paraphernalia. :-)

    I need good gas mileage since most places we go are 2-10 minutes away and it's a lot of stop-and-go. Too many stop signs. ;) I'd also like something that doesn't require a lot of maintenance; something with an engine known to last years to come.
