Our van!!!

Hooray we got a van! We are pleased to introduce Gold Penguin (Goldie) Sliver. Yes, we name large inanimate objects in our family. The girls really wanted to name it Sparkles; needless to say, J and I were not fans of that option. Gold Penguin Goldie is Kj's doing, and Sliver is mine, because it's silver colored. You know, just switch the "i" and the "l." It made sense to me.

ANYWAY, we drove up to Vancouver yesterday, made sure all the buttons worked, test drove it for a bit, signed the papers, and were on our way. We also stopped at the temple/Deseret Book on our way home. It was a good, fast trip. J and I are especially happy to have this chore done because he started studying for the bar again. Car shopping takes up a lot of time!




M saw a cat when I took this picture.

Yay! That is funny that it's gold and silver, or sliver, or whatever. I love M's face when she sees the cat. Hooray for minivans!

I am so happy for you. It looks like a real beauty. Do you feel like buying a van has been a rite of passage for you?- do you feel more "momish"? :)I can't wait for the day!

Nice Van! Travis went through some kind of morning when we got rid of our sweet corolla for our mini van. He swore we would never get one, ahahaha. I love that new car smell!
