On Saturday, April 27th, we had an epic day at the Hyundai Epic Play Date. The day was filled with lots of fun activities and so much food! The play date displayed the Hyundai 2013 Santa Fe, which gives people a strong play ethic. Well this day definitely gave us just that as well.
I currently drive a cross over that I enjoy driving, but it is not a Santa Fe. Hyundai has a come a long way since the late 1980’s, I can remember when the brand was first introduced and they were definitely not the quality we now see today. The Santa Fe is very stylish, spacious and delivers the perfect balance of horsepower and comfort. It offers many performance features. While sitting in the Santa Fe I spoke with a representative from Hyundai and he told me that Hyundai puts safety first and the Santa Fe 2013 achieved the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s (IIHS) highest honor as a 2012 Top Safety Pick. Top Safety Pick recognizes vehicles that do the best job of protecting people in moderate overlap frontal, side, rollover and rear impact evaluations. I was definitely impressed with this vehicle.
Our day began at 9:00 a.m. and ended at 5:00 p.m. We were entertained the entire day with family fun activities. Everything we did was done in timed rotation. After breakfast, the welcome and overview, my family decided to go to the paper rocket station. I thought we were just going to make a paper rocket. I was so wrong! Not only did we make the rocket we were able to launch it!
Before were going to break for snack we rushed over to make balloon sculptures. Initially my son was squeamish about making his own sculpture, but throughout the day he would sneak back to the station and practice. Before we left the gentleman working that station told him he could come work for him anytime.

I am so glad my daughter found time out of her schedule to come to this event. She was a tremendous help with the paper rocket. But when it came time for the 1001 Uses of Tinfoil activity, I truly needed her. First, we were told there could be parent participation. I don’t think so. By the time we got my son dressed in his foil, which seemed like a mad dash there was no way any parent could have participated. Of course we were all trying to make the best costume. I looked around and only the children were dressed in the cutest foil costumes. Then on to the races. To add finishing touches to their costumes, the children were paired off into teams. The team that all received whipped cream mustache’s at the fastest time, were the winners.
