As the seasons change Spring always symbolizes newness to me and I always think about the one scene from Bambi - when the flowers bloom, the warmth of the sun brings smiles to everyone's faces and the animals begin to mate, which eludes to beautiful babies being born. With only a month until my first nephew's arrival there was lots of errands to run, and final planning to do and we knew with our crazy schedules it would be that much easier to just zip around town in the 2016 Kia Optima EX to get things done.
Disclosure: We were provided this vehicle to test drive courtesy of Kia to facilitate this review. Opinions expressed are 100% our own.
If they can skip having to run errands by foot, the boys are all for calling a cab to the grocery store, as if it were miles away, instead of around the corner and down the block. This mid-sized Sedan was a great size for us to comfortably drive around in. One feature over time I'm sure the hubby would have enjoyed longer was the memory driver's seat, but since he's the only driver in our house there would be no need to change the settings. With just a few pushes of a button the seat can be adjusted to the drivers needs and then set. If more than one person drives the vehicle you can adjust and set the seating to whatever position they desire.
All 3 of my guys love listening to music on car rides so it was great to be able to play music from my husbands playlist on his phone and as an added bonus a FREE 3 months subscription to SIRIUSXM is included, pretty awesome!
- Panoramic Sunroof - gives a more spacious feeling and can be used in place of turning on the air conditioner.
- Blind Spot Detection System - gives visual and audio alerts warning drivers of other vehicles on side and rear.
- Rear Cross Traffic Alert - gives visual and audio warning when another vehicle is about to enter your backing path using sensors placed around the rear of car.
- Bluetooth Wireless Technology - safely make phone calls, hands free.
- Heated and Ventilated Seats - for cooler nights this is a definite bonus and can be found in the rear seats as well.
Super excited grandparents who can't wait for the arrival of Baby Q
As the oldest sister of three I can't believe how much my brat pack has grown up. My sister has always helped us out with our two boys, so I know wholeheartedly that she will make an excellent Mama and I'm thrilled to be a first time Auntie!
This handshake must have been my hubs welcoming expecting papa Jason into the daddy club, fun times ahead with a baby boy on the way!
Excited to be first time Auntie and Uncle and can't wait to spoil the newest lil' monster, especially knowing that for the first time in a while- if the baby starts getting fussy we can just hand him right back to his parents..... lol.
