It just makes sense...


We needed a new car to replace my 11 year old Civic and after a lot of looking, we took the plunge and decided to buy a new van for the family.


Here she is... We are trying to think of a name, because I am having personal issues with the idea of saying "girls, get in the VAN!" It drives wonderful, had fantastic features, and is so family friendly that I have gotten past the "van" stigma and bought one. I actually love it!

Why not just say go get in the Odyssey? Bill Engvall calls them Goobermobile, probably not a name you would choose. Why is there such a stigma about vans?
I like this line fro the song Feed Jake” If you get an ear pierced, some will call you gay.
But if you drive a pick-up, they'll say 'No, he must be straight.'
I have never named any of my vehicles.

Well, Goobermobile might be fitting considering the people that are inside it...but it is just too long. I don't know, Dave. My girls like to name everything...dolls, toys, bodily functions...and cars!

You know what? Mini vans come with some pretty neat features. I wish I could talk Rich into one. We have an Expedition, which I love for how roomy it is for the kids, but there is no cargo room in the back. Anyhow, enjoy the new...vehicle!

You were the last person I thought would ever cave, especially after the cool CRV! Shanda Shanda Shanda...just don't know if we can hang anymore....I gotta keep up with my image ;) Just kidding...now I will fit in a car when I come visit and we take along road trip to see the Roloff Farm.

Way to go. I actually really like my van & a new one must be even better because it won't break down on you. Jessica called her van a "party wagon" growing up, how does that sound?

What kind of van is that?
