Hyundai Santa Fe Epic Playdate: Part II Recap

Summer means my kids are home and begging for fun things to do. We keep busy with the regular routines of swimming, planing at the park, packing picnics, and bike riding, but every now and then we like to surprise them with something a little more... well epic.

Last week we surprised our kids with an epic three day play date. They had no idea they were about to board a plane and head to Orlando, Florida. An hour before our trip we shared the fun news! There was screaming and lots of excitement. They both loved the plane ride and view of the clouds. I still think they had no idea how much fun the next three days were going to be!

Day 1 of Florida fun included visiting Sea World. We were all memorized by the dolphin show and the divers. The boys both won sharks and carried them around the entire trip.

Day 2 we spent visiting Disney. We made sure to indulge in lots of ice cream and ice water to beat the heat. We all loved the parades, rides, food, and pure magic of being at the happiest place on earth. 

We even ran into some TV friends at Hollywood Studios...

Our last day we just enjoyed family time swimming and visiting The Lego Store at Downtown Disney in the evening.  There might have even been some create-your-own Light Sabers made that evening to celebrate a big 7th birthday. Having 3 days as a family in such a special place where you are allowed to engage and explore truly created an epic play date for us all (adults and kids) and memories that we will have forever.

If you could plan an epic play date of your own, what you would do? Would you travel or plan something near home?  Would it be an outdoor or an indoor activity? Would you bring or buy special foods? Would you craft? Bake? Head to the beach?

Well, Hyundai Santa Fe pondered the same questions and pulled together one seriously epic playdate with the help of some great bloggers. The whole purpose behind the event was to create cool family experiences out of the norm of our regular routines. 

Curious about what the bloggers did at this epic playdate? They all shared videos and posts about the event. One of my all time favorite bloggers is Jordan from Oh Happy Day. She shared a post about the event here. There's even a video of Jordan zip lining from tree to tree in the Redwoods!!

Hope this has inspired you to think epic and get play dating with your family!
