Upgraded grocery-getter

In 2007 my Nissan was totaled in an accident. Hoping that we would someday need a bigger car, I took Bobbie Jo's Saturn and we bought a used Pontiac Vibe. Sometime over the following few months was when we found out Max was coming our way.

I'm on my second new car since that Saturn, and Bobbie Jo is (was) still driving that Vibe. It was in serious need of oil, a wash, tires, brakes, and probably general service. We hadn't had it in the shop in a few years. It didn't smell very good either.

We have entered a new era, and bought this monstrosity. It's an incredible vehicle; dvd, bluetooth, remote start, power-everything. We already have our first road trip planned for this summer, and I hope there are many more to follow.

Hey kids, don't trash it too bad. Because when you want to borrow the car.......

He did it!

Yesterday I got Max riding his bike. Previous attempts have all been failures, he would quickly give up, and had no interest in trying.

This time was different. He tried hard the whole time, and after every fall he got right back up and back on the bike. I'm so proud of him! We've got more to work on, but the hard part is done.

Watching him go for the first time, made me feel like the best dad in the whole world.
