The Mini Van

So, this was the rental while out in Illinois...

I know there is always this thing about either mini vans or SUVs. I always swore I would never drive one. We had both a mini van and a suburban at different times growing up and that's kind of when I made my decision.

I'm happy to say that even after driving with one and my kids I'm still sticking to my decision. Despite the crazy amount of items the trunk can fit... the ease of your own kids hopping in the car themselves... the sliding doors making you never fear your kid slamming a car with the door next to you... etc. etc. I'm still happy with my SUV and know I won't be getting a mini van.

There is something about driving that low to the ground and feeling slightly like a bus that I just can't get over. I'm feeling more jusified in my decision now that I've done both. ;) But, I now do understand those mom's that love their mini van... there are many things to love! It was definitely built with the mother in mind.

What about you? Mini van? SUV?
