Max! What a little angel! All my kids LOVE our cruisers. Dax likes to ask J(%p owners if they "Just Empty Every Pocket!?" cracks me up.

You're kids will be into what ever you are and your wife are into. Have fun, nothing cooler than a cruiser chick. My 6 year old girl wants a green one when she grows up.

When my kids were first born, the family 1976 FJ40 was our only car. They both came home from the hospital in it, their car seats strapped into the jump seats in the back. When they got old enough, both of them learned to drive in my 1971 FJ40, with three on the tree. My daughter's first car was a 1985 4runner, because she didn't want to be "just like dad" and his Land Cruisers, but she wanted a Toyota 4x4. Now she does have a 1984 FJ60, that used to be her grandfather's and was (Rising Sun member) Chris Hatfield's before that. She also drives a RAV4. Now my son is 35 and my daughter is 33.

In the picture below, my daughter is maybe 3 months old?

Not a cruiser kid, but a 4Runner kid.

Had him in the garage starting at just a few weeks, and he loves it now. Knows most of the normal hand tools by name and what they are used for (most of the time).

He's 2.5 now and sometimes when we get home from school/work and pull into the garage, he tells me, "Those are our tools! We use them to fix our truck so we can drive, drive, drive it!"

Funny I was looking for a picture of that outfit. I guess I should’ve included taking him to breakfast.
