  1. this woukd be such a wonderful experience for my 3 year old and our family as a whole. We have not had a chance to take even 1 trip or vacation in the past 3 years now plus and it would just feel like a dream come true.

  2. Starved Rock was my dads favorite place. My husband actually proposed to me there bc he never met my dad because he passed the year prior to me meeting him and thought it would be a great way to “still have him involved” this place has our heart❤️

  3. What a wonderful opportunity this would be to experience as a family. We truly need a break from our busy work schedules and health issues that have been life changing.

  4. Being a single parent has made it hard to travel anywhere. I would love to spend some quality time with my son before he graduates high school. I am a very proud mom. My son doesn’t ask for much, he’s a smart, mature and loving young teen despite the circumstances, I consider myself very blessed.

  5. would really enjoy this wonderful experience with my husband and kids. we love nature. we have always wanted to stay there but weekend are always booked. been number 1 fan of Chicago Parents since 2009 . thanks for having us mom’s in the loop of things to do, healthy fun foods for the kid’s and things to try .

  6. We would love a getaway in the woods to unplug and enjoy nature! Coming up on 18 years of marriage next month and have NEVER had a couple nights away together, sans children. This would be perfect!❤️

  7. Thank you for putting together such a wonderful giveaway! My 3 year old stepson has never done anything like this before and would have the best time!

  8. We really wanted to do a babymoon, but it’s not in the cards financially…this would be the most perfect babymoon for us!
