Time for a Cool Change

2009_routan_silver

This past weekend found us cashing in on a FAB deal for this Volkswagen Routan.

Crap.  A minivan.  

Hell froze over when BP decided to become Catholic (YAY!).

Now it’s gonna freeze over again because this great big hunk of a man has to drive a MINIVAN.

Why, oh why, did we purchase such a soccer mom-grocery getter-kid toter-family oozing vehicle?

To fill that backseat up with baby #3 in November.

    Congrats Mandy!! I’m so happy for you!!! You’ll like having a van for the extra space and it’s really easy to get kids in and out of! 🙂

    Wow – Congratulations! We’re so happy for you guys!!! I personally think the Routan is the least-minivanish of the all, one that even I wouldn’t mind if I had to have a minivan. 🙂

    Oh my gosh CONGRATULATIONS!!!! Way to reel us all in with the minivan story! I almost missed the point of the post! So, are you hoping for a girl this time? And don’t feel bad….my hubby told me yesterday that I’m eventually going to have to drive a mini-van, too. I’m really hoping I’ll get my SUV, though.

    Congratulations Mandy!!! That was a great way to tell us your exciting news. Much more clever than my way. 🙂 Sage’s birthday is in earlyNovember. I think it is a great time of the year. I also have a mini-van and love it!! I can’t imagine having kids and not having it.

    Congrats Again! tell BP that he’s still cool in my book, and that it could be worse…..he could be driving a minivan with wood-grain on the sides of it. I am a fan of German engineering. big ups to VW for making a cool mini.

And believe me, you and BP will be very happy that you got that van. Oh God bless you. I will be praying for you and your family!!!
