Our New Van!

What a busy day! This morning, after getting excused from the jury, I had no idea we would be buying a van, but after 3 hours of negotiating with the dealers at Skinner's, we did! We just decided to get one locally so we don't have to pay $700 to have one shipped. It's a 2005 Chevy Uplander, which is one of the vans we liked during our searchings in Seattle. It's not blue, as my "dream van" would have been, (Yeah, I know..I'm not cool), but it's a nice brown color and has a DVD player, and a built-in child seat, and power opening doors. It's nice.We even got them to throw in 2 little monkeys wearing Chevy shirts for the kids!

That is the coolest soccer mom van I have seen. It looks more like an suv than a van :) I like the color too, it is about the same as my Trailblazer! I want power doors though. That is cool!

It's super comfy inside, roomier than our Grand Caravan, and rides really nicely. Can we borrow it for our next road trip? -gmajohn
