This post is sponsored by Toyota. I received movie tickets and a two week loan of a vehicle for the purpose of writing this post. All opinions are my own and reflect my experience truthfully.

It’s summertime and we recently had our first summer visitor. You know how when someone comes to visit, you tend to go places and do things that aren’t a part of your everyday agenda? Our first summer visitor came in the form of a minivan. The Toyota Sienna arrived in our driveway on Memorial Day weekend and changed the course of our week. Instead of just going one or two places, we had this renewed sense of adventure, we went everywhere!

We took our Toyota to see the Indianapolis Indians play. While we were there, we saw more Toyota vehicles!

Strawberries are in season, so we drove to the local u-pick strawberry field to pick sweet berries.

Our adventures took us to the tippy-tippy top of the parking garage at the world’s largest Children’s Museum, where we watched construction on the new addition and watched the men hang a sign on the skywalk.

Our navigation led us to a pop-up Pirate Show on the Central Green downtown. The Sienna steering wheel was easier to handle.

We quite literally visited every splash pad in our city. All eleventy-billion of them. It was so easy to get in and out of the van with all four children, their strollers and belongings. The kids were able to operate the doors themselves and help one another out of car seats.

On National Drive-In Movie Day we camped out in a gravel lot with all of the comforts of the Toyota Sienna and watched Pirates of the Caribbean 5. Our friends from Toyota treated the entire audience to free popcorn for the evening and everyone had a great time. Our drive-in experience was a true testament to the amount of cargo space in the trunk. We packed in 5 chairs, an exer-saucer for the baby, a double stroller, diaper bags and cozy blankets for cuddling. With four little ones, it’s hard to go anywhere without bringing everything you might need.
