Isn't she lovely?

Look what was in my driveway when I came home with the kids this evening! Doesn't it just scream "MOM" when you see her? She's a beauty, isn't she? Never did I think we'd be owners of a minivan. But today's styles are kinda cool and hip...or so I think. It'll always scream "Taxi Mom" or "Soccer Mom" but at least I'll be riding in comfort. I haven't even had the pleasure of taking her out for a spin (that's how new she is) but the kids and I got the basics figured out.

I've already been warned NOT to eat or drink in the car. With 16 cup holders, how is that going to be possible? I think there's some subliminal messaging going on in there. With a taupe/beige color interior, the chances of stains are most likely. We'll have to get some floor mats and seat protectors for sure. This "pick of the litter" is a 2007 Toyota Sienna, 8-passenger LE. Wow! My dream! Her complexion is called "Salsa Red Pearl"...I shall call her "Mini Pearl"!

The side door will open and close AUTOMATICALLY with a delicate guidance in the direction you want the door to go. Dominic here is currently holding the 2nd row seat in the middle, which either folds down (with cup holders on top) or can be completely removed from between the two seats.

The 3rd row of seats are 60/40. Both sides can "stow and go" completely into the floor of the vehicle. Magic!

Donovan has chosen his preferred seat...

..and I look forward to my first trip to Costco!
Look at the deep pockets in the back!

...Isn't she lovely?

By the way, many kudos to Uncle Rafa and Quality Motors. Our vehicle showed up at the auction at just the right time and Uncle Rafa placed the right bid. An awesome deal!

It looks like you got the pick of the litter.. Sweet deal -

I think you can fit the entire family and the grandparents... I guess Rudy did a good job picking it out. So does this mean you're selling the 4Runner, of course now that she's paid off ~lmao~ at least you'll get better gas mileage too...

I can't wait for a ride

I have to admit - I am jealous. I want a new car so badly but we've decided it's best to keep the ones we have (since they REALLY are good cars and we can't complain - they never need work). So we're planning on keeping those until they run themselves into the ground... or until Baby Hatch #2 comes along (which won't be for a while).

But, she is beautiful! And I hope you LOVE her!! ENJOY!!
