My New Baby

Is it possible to feel that way about a car?

Ummm, yeah.

I am thoroughly enjoying my new 2002 Prius sweetheart. Especially after driving that beast of a 15-passenger van for a month, my new car feels like such a tiny little thing. She can turn on a dime and be parked anywhere. The ride is so smooth, and I have been surprised what a nice sound system it has. And with an adapter for the cassette player, my new iPod sounds great coming through the speakers! (I recently inherited Bantam14's 4G when he upgraded to a 160G.) And I've been averaging 42-44 mpg with a combination of city and highway driving. With gas prices rising, I am so grateful!

And with two Priuses in the family...

...we can afford to drive the Big Van when we need to. Aren't they cute?

Kinda like Lightning McQueen and Sally.

Or the Priust...and the Priustess!

(Remember the family joke?)

I am renting a car this week and when I picked it up, they offered a Prius. DD and I jumped on it - and are loving it! I think I'll only use 1 tank of gas for the whole week :))
