Good Heavens, We Bought It

I can’t quite believe it, but we bought a car. SwingDaddy has been researching for a while, but we did a test drive and purchase within a day, and now we’re the proud owners of a Honda Odyssey and its approximately 47 cup holders.

One of my colleagues said, “Those minivans are so spacious, you could have a refrigerator inside!”

I replied, “Actually, it does.” There’s a little chill box by the driver’s seat where the AC is pumped in to keep a drink or two cool.

The next roadtrip is gonna be fun!

Nice! My husband actually really wants a minivan and I am the holdout. But when one of our cars dies (they are 10 and 11 years old), I have a feeling...

Kids are having fun in the spacious van.

I remember when we bought our first family car. By today's standards, it's really not as "modern" as your minivan (i want a fridge in my car, too! :D ) but it was also love at first sight. We were so used to driving this tiny red thing and suddenly found ourselves in this wonderful spacious car that could fit 2 large dogs, my parents, me and my two siblings without a problem. Plus the car dealer had some sort of arrangement with Disney so we got a Disney road trip set for free (lots of children's games and stuff so we wouldn't get bored).

I hope your next road trip will be as fun as ours was after we bought our car ;)

I am just catching up on this. We bought our minivan a year ago, and it is the best thing ever. I only wish I had gotten one sooner! And the bells and whistles they come with today are awesome!

Congrats on your new car! I am sure you will love it more and more as time passes.
