It’s official. We are a minivan family. And I love it.
We took our first road trip in the family truckster last weekend. 12 hours in two days. And they were the most comfortable 12 hours of driving we’ve had as a family. Plenty of room for our luggage, and everyone had their own seat. We even had the front seat empty, and we fit some hand-me-downs for Little Dude and a ladder on the way back. Yes, a ladder. With room to spare.
I got a captain’s hat for Mrs. Dude to wear when captaining the champagne yacht. But she’s not a fan just yet. I suspect it will grow on her. For now, I’ll wear it when I’m at the helm.
