The Happiest Car on Earth

Any time I take my Bug anywhere, people smile, ask to take pictures, tell me what a great car it is. I say "Thank You" and let them know that my boys and I call it "The Happiest Car on Earth." You can't look at it and NOT smile! As much as I enjoy all of that, my favorite memory has become a tradition. I got the car for Christmas and, that night, we decided to take it out and drive around to look at Christmas lights. My boys were 8 and 4 at the time. We had the top down, boys wrapped in blankets, Christmas music playing. Anyone who saw us driving around clearly thought we were nuts. We didn't care. We laughed and sang and had a great time. We had so much fun, we decided to do it again the following year, adding in covered cups of hot chocolate for the chilly boys. I'm especially looking forward to our tradition this year, as my older son will now be able to do the driving!! Life really is so much fun in our classic car!
