oh yes, we did

Our brand new 2008 Toyota Prius!

We finally did it. We bought a new car! A hybrid, no less…and it is cool.

It is so much fun to drive! I can’t wait until I get to drive it again, and we’ve been in it a lot today.

At speeds of around 40 mph and below, you’re driving almost solely on battery power. The engine kicks at speeds above 40 mph, but you’re still getting some of your power from the battery. All this adds up to getting about 50 miles per gallon!

It has all sorts of cool features that we’re only beginning to explore.

We’ve already gotten a lot of comments on it, and we’ve had it less than a day. The best was when we were in the car this morning at a stoplight. There were four older ladies in the car next to us and they all gave up thumbs up. To funny! This car definitely attracts a lot of attention.

I think we’re going to really like it.
