Jeep’s Ride Along Experience at the Auto Shows

Seeing cars at the Auto Shows is one thing but actually getting to sit and ride in them is a whole different experience.  Jeep has created a course to test your limits and experience just how far you can go with them!  Of course you have a professional driver taking you around the course and showing you how the cars work on these fun, creative courses.



Now you might not actually go off road or places that actually would be in this  kind of conditions but its nice to know that if you had to that you can.  Having someone show you how to actually use the vehicle and talk about it as you drive through each situation is really nice.

I felt really safe riding in the Jeeps.  The drivers also made sure to let us know that nothing bad was going to happen (of course).  They were there to show case all that they could do for us with out totally giving us a heart attack.  Lot of times when you do a test drive at the dealership you don’t get to experience this kind of details and “off road” type of level.  This was really taking it to the next level and making me want to visit a Jeep dealership very soon just to get my hands on one!

Springfree Trampoline is Full of Surprises!

If you were to invest in a Trampoline that was safe for your children and the friends that use it then Springfree Trampoline is will put you at ease.  One of the reasons why you should visit one of their hosted events is cause you can test out the trampolines and the kids have a blast!

I recently attended the Frozen event in Issaquah to see the new Tgomo device.  Tons of kids showed up in their frozen themed outfits.  Food, drinks, activities, and even the Frozen movie was shown.

This was a great time for parents to check out the trampolines and see just what they were about.  The new Tgoma app was a huge hit as well.  Making it fun and getting kids outside more (away from gaming inside).

Introducing Tgoma

Bring the Whole Family to the Seattle International Auto Show!

When you think of going to a Auto Show it might seem more like a collectors dream or more males there but in all actual there is tons of kids and families that now go to auto shows.   This is your chance to see fun, unique vehicles.  Tons of things for kids to do.  Moms can day dream about their next car… and men, well they’re always day dreaming.  HA!


Kids Test Drive, Caricature Artist and Sharingbox Photo Booth for the Little Ones

Why should mom and dad have all the fun? Sure, when the 2017-Model Seattle International Auto Show opens its doors on Thursday, Nov.10, it will be packed with all the auto industry has to offer including electric and alternative fuel vehicles, ultra-high-end exotics, luxury rides, test drives and more. Dad can swoon over the ‘34 Ford 5 Window Coupe or the ‘55 Chevy 210 Handyman in the Hot Rid Garage and Mom can dream a little at the Maserati and Ferrari displays. And when they’re done dreaming, there are more than 500 other vehicles to check out. They can sit in the driver’s seats, inspect engines, kick tires, count cup holders, check trunk space, test drive vehicles and take in that new car smell. But there’s also tons of fun to be had for those not yet old enough to drive.


Going to the show won’t break the family piggy bank as all children 12 and under are admitted free when accompanied by a paying adult, compliments of BECU.

Fun for the little ones
Always a family favorite, kids ages 3 – 7 can do their own test drives of a variety of battery-powered ride-on cars on two special tracks just for them.

Eleven popular local artists have unleashed their imagination and talent to transform 15 traditional pedal cars into one-of-a-kind works of art. Pedal cars date back to the 1890s when mini-versions were modeled after real cars on the road at the time, and the kid-size rides have been on top toy wish lists ever since. The ArtCars4Kids project takes the idea of a shiny paint job to a whole new level with the mini-cars serving as the artists’ ‘canvas’ for imaginative, unique designs. Although the cars already have been – or will be – auctioned at Seattle Children’s Home fundraisers, online, and at other upcoming events, all will be on display at the show.

Kids and their parents will have fun watching an artist create a caricature of them in their favorite pedal car and will receive a 4×6 print of the caricature. The caricature artist will be onsite Saturday, 9am – 9pm and Sunday 9am – 6pm. Also on Saturday, 10 am- noon, families can watch artist Ryan Henry Ward, Seattle’s most prolific muralist, as he paints one of the pedal cars onsite and transforms it into a special work of art.

The whole family can get in their game day spirit prior to the Seawhawks/Patriots game on Sunday by stopping the Toyota booth between 11am and 3pm and giving Blitz a high five or taking a twelfie with Blitz and the Toyota Seahawks Tundra.

Sharingbox Photo Booth
New to the show is the Sharingbox Photo Booth, which will give families a unique and incredibly fun way to share their experience. This stand-alone photo booth enables showgoers to take fun, crazy and interesting photos direct from the auto show floor and share them across their social media or print them immediately.

For more information on a specific vehicle or technology, please speak with a manufacturer representative at the show or visit a local new car dealer.

The Seattle International Auto Show will be open to the public Thursday, Nov. 10 through Sunday, Nov. 13, 2016 at the CenturyLink Field Event Center, located at 800 Occidental Drive South, in Seattle. Show hours are Thursday, from 2 p.m. to 9 p.m., Friday, from 12 p.m. to 9 p.m., Saturday, from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sunday, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Admission is $16 for adults (13 & over), $13 for senior citizens (62 and older) and $13 for Military (with any D.O.D.

Game Day Baked Potato Bar

Create an inexpensive delightful meal with a Baked Potato Bar for your guests on game days!

Trying to come up with food to feed a crowd and not cost you a lot of money can be tricky.  You also don’t want to spend the whole day cooking/slaving in the kitchen.  Also, you want something that everything can enjoy.  I’m always trying different things each game day and the Baked Potato Bar was a hit!
