My new love

Spence and I went to pick up our new-to-us van on Saturday. To say I was excited is quite the understatement. We went through a friend of our sister-in-law's family. He goes to autctions and can buy cars at cost basically. We were able to get a 2010 Chrysler Town and Country because of the great deal he got us. We were so excited! When Spence called to tell me Tuesday, I asked if we could go get it right then. He convinced me that we had to wait until Saturday. We dropped the boys off at my parents and headed to Germanton to get our car! Once we got back Zeke was so excited to check it out. I think he has been the most excited of all of us.
Perks to having a van:

  • buttons that open and close both doors and the back hatch

  • both boys can climb in and out of the van with out assistance (this is gonna be so great once I have a big belly in the way)

  • rear ac, poor Ben gets so hot sitting backwards and was always sweaty in the Escape. This hasn't been a problem at all

  • There are so many cupholders! Just in the front there are 6! I'm not sure why this is so exciting, but it is

  • it drives so smoothly

  • The inside is so roomy, I can walk between the seats and get in to buckle the kids if it were raining

  • the back has so much room to store stuff. My weekly grocery run didn't even fill it all the way across

So, if you don't have one, run start test driving rightnow

"Do you like my new van?"

"WoW, that door opens too?!"

She still needs a name, so I am taking suggestions...
