New (to us) Car

About a month ago, I begged Andrew to try putting both car seats into our Saturn. We did and it worked, but it was VERY tight and it seemed that the two kids would be almost on top of each other. At that point, we decided maybe we should look at selling the Saturn and buying a bigger car. When we started looking, we discovered that buying an older minivan would be possible. We did some looking in the classified and on Craigs List and decided that on Saturday, we would start making phone calls and doing some test drives. Yesterday morning, I noticed a commercial for a really big used car sale going on at the fairgrounds. We decided that we would start there this morning. After looking around a little, we found a 1999 Dodge Grand Caravan Sport. The price was higher than what we wanted to pay, but we told them what we were willing to pay and after a little going back a forth, they finally agreed to our price (in the end we were able to get them to drop the price down $2,000). Here is a picture of our new minivan. Just so you know, we don't have a thing for red cars. In fact, if we had a choice of anther color, we probably would have chosen a different color.


We now need to sell our Saturn, so if you know of anybody that wants to buy our Saturn, please send them our way!

On a side note....I can't tell you how many times Andrew has heard me say "My belly is getting quite big, I don't remember ever getting this big with Keagan.". He patiently says "No, you didn't". So, I thought I would take a picture and share it with you all today. I know that for a lot of you, this doesn't look all that big, but it is for me.

Our Van is a 1999 and we love it. Congratulations on the van. We know what it is like to have the two car seats in a small car and how hard it is. I have to say that we love the color and the sport van is really nice van. Also we love the new formate of your blog it is easier to read and we love the color.

Cute pregnant picture, right now I just think I look fat and awkward.

Congratulations on the new van. It is awesome, all that room. By the way,I think you guys really prefer red sporty vehicles and don't want to admit it.

I can't believe you didn't mention that you got a new van to me yet. I guess you are just testing me to see just how much I read your blog. Sadly I haven't been out to read my fav blogs much lately.

You look great too btw!we6kings

You know your family is growing when you need three rows of seats! I'm getting very excited to meet the newest addition. Here's to hoping your water doesn't break in a public place again.
