On The Road Again

I mentioned in yesterday's post that Tuesday evening flew by for us...and this is why.

Meagan, Derrick and Davin came by to show us their 'new' car! Meagan has had her car since she was a single urbanite. Of course, most single girls want to drive a sporty car and her Scion tc was just the ticket. Then came Davin and baby seats...and the two door, sporty car was losing some of it's appeal.
She and Derrick decided to get a crossover-utility vehicle so that the family would have a little more room. They found a great Ford Edge on Monday night and sealed the deal on Tuesday.
Even though we are quite excited for them, the new car excited our household even more because...
(Cue Willie on the iPod..."On the road again, I just can't wait to get on the road again!)
Brianne is buying the Scion!
If you remember, she totaled her Maxima in February of 2008. She has been driving our Suburban since then. (First to school, and now to work.) This was just what she needed, as the gas expense on the Suburban has been eating her lunch. Sometimes quite literally!
Meagan fulfilled her teasing older sibling role by sending Brianne a text message saying that she didn't get the car after all. So, Brianne was very surprised when they drove in the driveway with two cars.
Ahhh...the joys of having older siblings who pass things down. Even if you do have to make monthly payments!

Bri looks so cute in her new car! I am so excited for the both of them! I will have to see a better pic of Meagan's new car. Very exciting for all!

I had a compact Plymouth Champ in high school. I still had it will the girls were born so I understand completely wanting a 4 door vehicle. Meagan, you will love having all of this room. Getting Davin in and out will not be such a chore anymore. Congratulations!!!!

Bri...looking good in your "new" ride. You will enjoy scooting around town in it. And if you are anything like Brittany, you will enjoy saving that money on gas. She loves to rub it in that she can fill her car up on $20 or $30, depending on gas prices at the time, and it goes for 2 weeks. While I put $30-40 a week in mine.
