Minivan Seeks Same for Meaningful Relationship

On the road, so that means many hours enclosed in our van as a group.

Somehow I keep thinking that the more time we spend on the road in this Odyssey, the more it becomes a part of us. Sort of like growing roots only with no chance of growing vineyard vegetables any time soon.

This isn’t really a super exciting holiday, but the classic American road-trip, filled with whining and arguments and inappropriate places to stop and pee is just the thing for reminding us just how much we need.

This would include: a few change of clothes, a well stocked snack bag, a few toy distractions and, most of all, the time to slow down, look out at the clouds and do not much with the people we love.
