A Day of Firsts

Today was a big day of firsts. It was the first time I parked in a non-angled parking spot, the first shopping trip to Walmart, The first time through the drive-thru, the first trip to an awesome park, oh and the first time spending $50 on rubber (mats).

Can you guess what I am talking about? I am now a member of the mini van mom club!!! And I am loving it! Just look and this wonderful creation!
 On Saturday we went out for the day as a family and found ourselves a 2007 Toyota Sienna. It is a beautiful thing! I love love love my van! And I can't wait to add more firsts to the list. I have yet to make a stop at the gas station, or go through the car wash, or even take our first camping trip and be able to fit everything we want! The van and I have a lot of memories to make.
 The car seats don't even touch anymore!!! And it is a wonderful feeling (although I know it won't last) when the kids car seats are dirtier than the rest of the car. And there are enough seats for each child to bring a friend. Or room for 3 more kids of our own. But the jury is still out on that one. I know we'll have more but just not right now. We have a total of 8 seats and who knows how many cup holders!
Isn't she pretty?! And I love the color. In fact she looks perfect against the color of our house! The brown and earthy blue look fabulous together. She was meant to be!

And I really need to come up with a name for her. Any suggestions? Maybe I'll make a contest out of it. Til then...I think I'll go for a drive in the rain today. Another first!
