Our New Ride

Goodbye, Pathfinder


Hello, Minivan!


That's right! No need to blink, or read the captions again, it's true...we now own a minivan! I was in denial the entire time we were purchasing the vehicle. I couldn't believe we were actually doing this. Tim has been the one spearheading the minivan movement. He wanted this from the beginning, but I needed some convincing. Months of research, exploring EVERY other possible option and after only ONE test drive I was finally convinced. Seriously, it was love at first test drive. This car is a dream for a mother of three. I couldn't believe how much room there is inside. Also, the cargo and storage space is unbelievable. Not to mention, it rides like a sports car. After squeezing my three children into the back seat of the Pathfinder for 2+ months this vehicle was a dream come true. Yes, I have sold my soul to the minivan.

I was sad to leave my Pathfinder that we've loved for the past 6 years (the top picture is me kissing it goodbye). But, the minute we drove the minivan away I was in love. Seriously, I'm not even embarrassed to admit it anymore...I LOVE MY NEW MINIVAN!

Yea!! Good for you! I was wondering when you'd take the plunge. Everyone who rides w/ us just raves about the ride...well, not the young teenagers, but all the others. ;) It has been soooooo nice to have ours! Sorry you've had to part w/ the Pathfinder. Can't wait to see your pimped out ride!

A minivan?!? Glad you love it! I'm still not convinced - maybe I need to take that test drive! Enjoy your new car, a new car is the BEST!

I love your new ride! I felt the same way when we were shopping for ours, but we really loved it! If not for the twins, I'm sure we'd still have it. Congrats!!
