Youuuu guessed it!
We have purchased. The minivan of my dreams.
The search for the #familycar is over.
Or, as my son puts it, "The Star Wars Car."
|Daddy knew just what DVD to pop in for the 'tour.'|
What eventually put us over the top is, after the Renn Faire, we saw a Used Car Sales place we hadn't seen before: Car Sense, which is basically a local, PA-based company that competes with the nationwide conglomerate Car Max. We pulled in after a long day at the Faire upon learning, with a quick scan of their online inventory, that they had one of those Buick Enclaves that I had been coveting. Hubby needed to drive one. He was not impressed! So he decided I needed to drive the Nissan Pathfinder, the SUV he had been coveting. I was not impressed! I decided right then and there it was the time of our lives to get a minivan. We could not have been happier with the process there, and the inventory.
|Daddy is leaping for joy at getting a virtually new 2013 car for a used price at Car Sense!|
|Mama's excited to put the 70.3 magnet on that bad boy.|
|Nan is excited she has a dedicated seat all for her.|
|And that we quickly sold her old car before she had to go home (she got one of ours.)|
|The kids want to live, sleep, "eat dinner", and of course, watch movies in it. These are all actual requests.|
|This is how you wrestle for the back seat.|
|This is how you 'stow and go'|
|And even though we are living a little LARGE for our garage...|
|We are all, basically, in minivan heaven.|
|Or Movie-lovers heaven. Not sure which.|
Oh yeah, and it was Halloween this week! We ran the gamut of costumes...
|First up: Rapunzel and Ironman|
|Second event: Ariel "princess edition" and...|
|Finally: pink princess (a costume from 2 years ago) and Spidey/Ironman/Darth hybrid hero-villain|
|The Darth is in the shoes....'which are super fast! watch me run to that house mommy!"|
|Telling the story of their outfits to the neighbors. I heart this picture.|
Did you forget Thanksgiving was next too?
