Swagger WagonPosted: April 20, 2011
We’ve officially joined the “Swagger Wagon” club, and I couldn’t be happier! Nick and I have had our eye on the Honda Odyssey minivan for a few years now. Over Christmas, we told Nick’s aunt and uncle from Minnesota about our dream car, and that’s all it took to launch Uncle Dave into his search for the perfect van for us. Once we found out we were pregnant with baby #2, we called Uncle Dave and Auntie Grace and shared the news with them by asking them to pick up their search because we would be needing the extra space sooner than expected. Well, Uncle Dave took us seriously, and within a few weeks, found us a great van at a great price in Minneapolis (their hometown). Unfortunately, this was during a really busy time at work for both Nick and me so we were unable to fly up there to see or purchase the van. Yep, that’s right. We bought the van without ever seeing it! AND…my in-laws flew up to Minnesota and drove it home for us. We are so very blessed! We’ve had the van for almost a month, and I. LOVE. IT. Reuben is in heaven riding in the van. He loves being able to climb into his own seat, and have room to stretch his legs. The DVD player is a great addition too, although we’re currently in negotiations as to how much it will be utilized while driving around town. I’m looking forward to having it for long road trips, though!
This is a stock photo, but our van looks exactly like this 🙂
