Also, on Father's day weekend we purchased a Honda Odyssey! The car I was driving before this was from the 90's and no longer had working AC...and in this weather, AC is definitely a necessity for this preggo mama. So a new car was in order for our family.
I always swore to myself I would never be a minivan mom- minivans are SO ugly! Our next car we bought was going to be a Toyota Highlander. However, once we found out we were expecting twins- those plans flew out the window.
We were going to need something that was bigger. So I just looked at a minivan and sorta fell in love with the convenience. Push a button? Ding-ding the doors open/close. Built in entertainment center? Sweet. Lots of space? Plenty. Great gas milage? Yes. Price? Compared to a large SUV, can't beat the price. I was sold. Jared needed a little convincing, but he eventually came around. It's going to save us a lot of time, money and hassle, and he really couldn't argue with that ;)
