Goodbye Dwight & Hello Princess

It took us only one week after Sophie's birth to realize that our current van was not going to be large enough.  We had been planning to buy a larger minivan for several months but thought that we could wait until July to do so. Well, try fitting four kids and all the gear in the silver Mazda...I'll tell ya it ain't pretty.  I had been browsing the KSL ads for vans on and off for several months so I knew when a good deal would pop up and a week after Sophie arrived so did our good deal.
This is our new "Princess" van as Phoebe calls it, because it is white. She requested a white or a pink van and through no effort or appease her request we found a white one. It is a 2007 Honda Odyssey with a little less than 60,000 miles on it. We did make sure to have a DVD player installed for those long trips home & to finally silence our 3 yr who tends to be a non-stop broken record talker at times.   
This is further in the wrong direction from the type of vehicle Cory wants, however it fits our young family better and it is nice to finally have something with a little power again. Our only problem at the moment is that  it is a little long for our garage with our deep freezer so we are now down sizing our deep freezer size and having to build more shelving in the garage to get everything up and out of the way.  Hopefully our pretty new princess van will finally fit in its garage/ home this coming  weekend.

We have an Odyssey too, and you will not regret that purchase! Best mini-van ever. WE love ours and the dvd player is heaven sent.
