So today to celebrate our 9th wedding anniversary, the wife and I bought me a minivan. The transformation is complete, I'm Mr. Mom! On the plus side, lots of room for those long caching roadtrips.

Congratulations on 9 years. That speaks highly to your dedication and committment.

As for the minivan - we have one too and although they aren't the "coolest" vehicle they are "utility rich". One thing we liked is that with 2 kids it's easy to let them each invite a friend along and travel easily with 6 of us in the vehicle plus all the kid's "essentials" (i.e. stuffed animals, pillows, books, etc.)

Congrats on nine years. I know we only met briefly on Saturday, but my wife talked about how impressed she was of you caring for your children. I hated getting the mini-van, but I love that car now.

Congrats again.

Happy anniversary to kungfu and mrs. hippie! And don't worry about that Mr. Mom tag from the minivan. It's a dead giveaway when your geomonkeys have almost as many finds as you do! wink

Woot. Congratulations on 9 years. Too bad on the van though.....When I had a van, it was nice for the kids, but what a change from a Mustang.

Congrats from me too.
nice to meet you at the picnic, wish time would have allowed a bit more to chat.

Mini-van is fine, its when you can't get by without having at least a 7 passenger van and having space in the back!
Like Zuma, it's a big change from the 2 passenger Pickup or a little hatchback.

Thanks everyone, we've already fallen in love with the van! Smile

Hope to see you all soon either out on the trail or at the next event we make it to.

Congrats on the anniversary,but you will have to throw a geocaching trackable sticker on the van to make it seem "not so Mr.Mom" JK.
congrats on both.
