And now that dream is a reality. We got our very own minivan the weekend before Christmas - just in time for the annual Christmas trip to Iowa and South Dakota to be with family. As we were packing, Stephen said something to me that he has NEVER said while packing for any trip (especially at Christmas) - "Anything else you want to bring? We have plenty of room!"
I love the space. I love the automatic sliding doors. I love the fact that I don't have to lean over to get the kids buckled in the car. I love that I can check the temperature at any time while I'm driving. I could go on and on. I love it all.
I am now officially a "Minivan Momma" and I couldn't be happier.
