I think I was born to be a minivan guy. I love driving it. I love that they call it the Swagger Wagon . I sometimes wish it was a bigger, real van . Not a 'mini'. Nat, on the other hand, is counting down the days until she can downsize into something smaller, more SUV-ish that is easier to handle (and park). Once we get into all boosters and don't have the need for the massive double stroller, I think we can move off the mini-van everyday routine. But, I think I'll keep it! And use it as my primary car. That's why I put on some sweet new tires - 80K tires. I roll hard. I don't drive my car very much - to the grocery store or to Menards, so it gets light use. But, when we go somewhere as a family, we take the minivan. And...it feels to me like the van is like a space shuttle. Has so many controls and is so comfortable. I love driving it and having the space. It gets just ok gas mileage, but makes up for it in the way it handles and drives.
