A 4th of July Odyssey

Our long term travels with the 2011 Honda Odyssey continue!  (Here’s the last one).  This time, it was off to Door County, Wisconsin.

As always, the Odyssey set the standard for carrying kids and cargo.  This time, a crew of 6 and a full load of stuff!  My youngest two have been watching the Star Wars movies on our trips, it was episodes 6 and 2 for this one.  We also appreciated the newly discovered traffic congestion feature of the Nav system to help combat Chicago/Milwaukee construction and crashes!

Cybex Aton Review: Easiest Base to Install?

The Cybex Aton infant seat has been highly anticipated since it was first unveiled at the ABC Show two years ago. From first glimpse, it was a cute infant seat in a rainbow of colors. At last year’s ABC Show, we saw the base for the first time and saw German engineering and creativity at work. A big sticker on the front of the base advises “Easiest Base to Install!” Is it? Does the infant seat live up to the anticipation? Let’s see.
