Our summer road trip with Toyota Sienna

Ah, our first time driving a minivan, I gotta say, the “Sienna is the official van of family fun”.  This review will be done in two parts.  One by me and the other by Papa Ash since he’s the driver of our family.  I’ll tell you first that this was great and the SAFETY features are the best compared to the…
