Not sure how it happened and it was a crazy step for us but it really did happen. We bought a mini van, yes a mini van. Never in a million years, did I think we would own a mini van but we do and I love it. We talked about SUV's and that was our next car but the more we looked the more we could not find everything we wanted in an SUV, unless it was $40k or more or used. Nothing against used cars but if I'm going to be paying that much, I think I would rather a new car.
So Friday it happened. Went to Honda, saw the car, and fell in love. Went back home picked up the kids and Henry and Charlie went back and bought Mommy a new car.
That is Henry working the deal at the dealership. He was so good for four hours and was so excited when we got home to show me, what they bought Mommy.
This car has all the bells and whistles and then some. It has a cooler, a cooler and a purse hook and I'm pretty sure every seat comes out of the car if needed it too. Henry has chosen the way back as his seat and Mare Bear gets the middle by herself.
I still don't know what all this stuff is but what I do know is that it rides like you are on a cloud. I feel very safe and I don't feel like I'm driving in a mini van at all.
It has already saved us from a melt down. Henry had tball on Saturday and it rained and they played in it. Well, Mary and I retreated to the mini and she watched Elmo, phew.
I want to drive it all the time, I'm really happy and pleased with our decision to get it. Was it on a whim, yes, but we work best that way. Road trip this weekend so we shall see how she does.
