Every year we look forward to summer to start our traditional summer adventures and this year hasn’t been the exception!! We love to tourist our hometown, visit museums and monuments, not to mention enjoy some quality family time.
Summer is a special time in our home! I love that the kids are home, that the routine could be flexible, that I don’t have to pack lunches (YAY), and especially, we love our family summer adventures.
This time the end of the school year was a little bittersweet. We are moving so the kids will not return to the same school, that makes us kind of sad. On the other hand, the kids couldn’t hide their excitement about summer vacation and for all the new things that are coming on our way.
So, since this summer will be super busy for us, organizing and packing for the move, I plan a few weeks full of fun and adventure and our friends from Mazda borrowed us just what we were looking for: A fantastic and spacious Mazda CX-9.
Did you see that red color? What a gorgeous car!
Our first stop was our beloved nation’s capital! 🌸Washington DC🌸
The Mazda CX-9 has the perfect balance of space and comfort that today’s families need/want and a super powerful engine.
5 2018 Mazda CX-9 Features I Loved the Most:
3 ROWS OF SEATS, perfect for a big family. Accessing the third row is easy and the kids can climb in without needing to remove the child seat(s).
REAR CROSS TRAFFIC ALERT, the system is activated when you select reverse gear. It monitors the traffic approaching from either side of your Mazda CX 9 and If there is a possibility of a collision, you will receive visual and audible warnings to the danger. Genius!
TRAFFIC SIGN RECOGNITION, which helps prevent the driver from overlooking traffic signs and provides support for safer driving.
TWO MEMORY SETTINGS FOR THE DRIVERS SEAT! Yes … TWO!! This so helpful. NO more wasting time trying to figure out what is the position you left the seat the last time you drove it. Just push a bottom and that is it.
The CONNECTIVITY system is top notch! Everything is accessible through a full-color touchscreen display and intuitive Commander control. From music, hands-free calls, the navigation system and much more.
Visiting Washington DC, its monuments and museums never get old! It’s a gorgeous city with character and grace. And even though we have lived close to this city for years, every time we visit it we always find something new and something to be excited about.
The next stop of our summer adventures 2018 was Portugal!!
So we packed up for two days straight and then loaded the beautiful Mazda CX9 with 8 suitcases. Yes, you read right…. all 8 suitcases fit! and we still had a plenty of room to travel comfortably from Virginia to JFK airport in NY.
Sometimes I get nervous when we have to drive for so many hours but with all the Mazda CX9 security systems I felt relaxed and really enjoyed the road trip.
If you’re shopping for a new family vehicle but you don’t want to give up style you definitely need to check up the Mazda CX 9.
This a vehicle that will make you want to show off!
