Maximus: The family truckster
Well, as promised, here are the pictures of the new mini-van. Kimberly said we should give it a masculine name so that we didn't feel so silly driving it. It's more of a joke, but we decided to call the van Maximus. In fact, that's all Sophia calls it. I think she enjoys it more than us, which is good because hopefully we will have it for a long time.
Honestly though, i don't feel that silly driving it. When you are inside, you can't even tell. It drives really nice and has tons of little amenities. Literally, they thought of everything. There is a soft green glow light in the ceiling that lights up at night for some night lighting in the back, a 110 volt AC outlet in the back (just like in your house) for plugging in whatever you like. The second row seats swivel around to face the 3rd row seats and there is a table that goes in the floor so that all 5 seats can play cards or something while mom and dad focus on the road. And, there is a "conversation mirror" in the front that allows mom and dad to see EVERYTHING that is going on in the back without having to turn around or look away from the road. Brilliant!
