When I was deciding which car to get after the twins were born, (well, because our gosh darn Subaru just wasn't big enough anymore for three kids and two dogs) I really had to think about 4 wheel drive (or all-wheel drive) because of the hill we live on, and more importantly, because of the hill my best friend lives on. I knew I was going to be stuck at home through the winters...long winters...by myself and I wanted to be able to feel like I could go and see whomever I wanted to, whenever I wanted. So it was really in preparation for her road, which gets far scarier in the winter and spring than our hill, that I chose the Toyota Sienna, which hasn't done us wrong, except for the run-flat tires, which is another spring story for another spring day.
Last Saturday, we took the clan up to Medora's house and we made it up fine. But I thought I'd get back up there today, in our truck, to give you a little view of what Medora and her husband have to deal with every day. It's a beautiful Spring day today, as you'll see:

Medora, (whom we all coincidentally call Mud) I love you darling...I do not love your road.
