My new ride!

For the last 7 years, this has been my ride.

It's been a great car/van. We have made many wonderful trips and memories in this van. It has served us very well.

But, Bailey is getting older and will be driving soon. We will eventually let Bailey drive our Honda CR-V and Rominal will drive the van. So, that meant I needed to get a new car.

Meet my new Honda Pilot!

We brought it home last night.

One of the things I wanted was to be up a bit higher than my van, and you can see the Pilot is slightly higher up.

I have the next 7 years to learn what all of these buttons do. It also responds to voice commands, should I get tired of pushing buttons. Hee hee - love that!

Rominal is checking out the cargo area.

Bailey will appreciate the window shades during Texas summers.

My van had seats for 7 people, while the Pilot has seats for 8. The people in the third row have to be really small or really good friends though.

I often have that many people in my car for work lunches, so that was important to me.

Here's Rominal checking out the third row seats.

I actually woke up really early this morning, just to go for a ride in my new car. Of course, I made good use of my trip and got Starbucks while I was out too.

Have a great day!

Oh Wendy! What an awesome new ride! I love it! The voice command feature is great and I wish I could have that much room in my car. Have fun with it! AND if you ever need a road trip...we have plenty of room for ya!
