Over the weekend we got a new (to us!) minivan. Jason has been doing a lot of research the past few months and we had it narrowed down to a Nissan, Toyota or Honda. In the end we went with a 2010 Honda Odyssey.
We ended up spending a little more than we had planned but we weighed our options and decided that, for us, this was the best way to go in the long run. We have low miles and a full bumper to bumper warranty for an additional 8 years/120k miles because we went with a Honda certified vehicle - worth it!
Amelia loves the van. She named it "Tasha" and she refers to it by that name constantly. Who can blame her for her excitement...she went from her knees touching the back of the driver's seat to this:
|Talk about leg room!|
We are selling Jason's car this week and will use my little Saturn to commute to/from work. Whoever has the kids gets the van. So far that means he has it all the time since he takes Amelia to speech and school M-Th mornings, ha! The only time I leave the house with the kids is usually Thursday evenings for speech!
It's going to take some time for me to get used to driving a larger vehicle than my little quad-coupe but I'm sure I will get the hang of it quickly!
