But as we all know, time flies! With […]

By: Heather van Mil I have a secret to share, it’s been weighing on me for a long time. 5 years and 9 months to be exact – how long I’ve been a parent. I confess that….. I argue with my spouse in front of my children. (Pause for the collective gasp) Just about any […]

2015 Ford Expedition | Review

Published July 27, 2015 at 10:00 am - No Comments

The 2015 Ford Expedition fit all of our needs, and we all enjoyed it. Overall, it was my husband’s number one pick for vehicles we have driven this year. I was surprised that it fit into our garage and we managed just fine with getting in and out of the back seats in the driveway. […]

As far as family vehicles go, the RAV4 is a strong contender as long as you’re okay with a five-seater. This is a very agile small SUV with the get-up-and-go for urbanite families, even those who do the occasional road tripping.

Toyota Highlander

The Toyota Highlander surprised me. I enjoyed it a lot more than I thought I would, and the interior was hands-down my favourite this year. This was also my first experience driving a Hybrid vehicle of any kind. When you start it, it’s so quiet and the motor doesn’t kick in for a couple of seconds […]

2015 Lincoln Navigator

We have been driving various family vehicles this year to review them and to see if they may be a fit for our family and find out if we’re ready to move away from a mini-van or not. Last month we drove the 2015 Lincoln Navigator. I knew it would be huge, and I knew […]
