We have the keys, we have the car!

Late Friday evening, the sales person from the dealership pulled into our driveway to exchange the loaner vehicle for our NEW (to us) 2002 Chevy Suburban.

Isn't she pretty??

We're still considering a nickname. It's really cute to hear the kids try to spit out "sururan" or "busurban". Maybe we'll call her BOSS-lady... her great big 22 inch tires say "BOSS"

We are finding her to be a great balance between my need for a practical vehicle and Shane's need to have a toy. (but honestly, I think he's pretty excited).

The kids are quite comfortable as well.

Lots of space, and oh! the entertainment!We took her for a trip to Dallas, OR to see Shane's Mom for the day. Even Dex was able to come along since her crate fits nicely in the back. (and after a day of running through the river with Louey, no way is that dog getting loose in this nice clean car).
We were very blessed by our last car. My husband has said that he feels much we are much safer in this vehicle and "it's fun!". I think we're just blessed!


  1. Congratulations on the new car! Looks like a lot of fun, although driving it would freak me out!

  2. Wow! So sophisticated and so fun all in one! Congratulations.

  4. sorry sarah, i was trying to see if when i changed my name on my profile it would go back and change all my old comments too...apparently not. so then i tried this comment window it is all gone, but in my view of the whole post with comments it still says my name and links to my profile and therefore my blog but just doesn't show the comment. whuups. thanks for letting me experiment on you. :)
