So. Guess what’s first on our agenda this weekend?
We’re test driving minivans.
Yup. You heard me right. The time has come. You may remember when I first announced my third pregnancy that Kenny and I had a little squabble about getting a minivan. Kenny thinks they’re so cool. Seriously. He has wanted one for a long time. Because my husband is all about smart purchases and a minivan is smart. We travel to Utah a lot – best gas millage on the road. We live in a busy city with tight parking – sliding doors. We now have three children and are entering the “carpool” years – room for everyone and then some. I tend to overpack for trips and then shop at whatever location we’re at, causing even more of a packing problem – did I mention room for everyone and then some?
We’ve been over and over the perks a million times and I’m still having a hard time with this. I don’t do smart purchases. I do stylish purchases. And fun purchases. I say let’s buy a sporty Lexus and figure out the kid situation later! HA!
Deep down I know that once I drive one of these things and feel the convenience they bring while hauling my crew around that I will be hooked. We wanted to wait until Honda came out with their new model so we could compare all options. Well, the new model is out and the time has come. And I have to admit that things aren’t going so great with three in our current SUV. It’s a little tight to say the least.
So wish me luck! And think of me Saturday. Picking out my very own “Swagger Wagon.”
Yo! Where my kidz at?
