Chevy Uplander

Meredith and I went on a pilgrimage today that took us officially from cute young married people to full blown grown-ups all in the span of about 4 hours.

All that is to say that I am now the proud owner of a…wait for it…a MINIVAN! As I signed the papers I think I heard the death rattle of the last bit of cool that has been hanging on inside of me. But I do have to say that I have wanted a minivan for a long time now. As a youth pastor of a church without a bus I am constantly needing vehicles that have multiple seats. So now finally I can take 6 youth with me somewhere! You would be amazed at how many times I have needed just those 2 extra seats.

As for the choice of van I don’t exactly know how we ended up with what we did. If you have heard of a Chevy Uplander you have more knowledge of it than I did when I woke up this morning. But the deal was good, and the lovely Mrs. Sumer Analytical Sunshine helped out with some research so we went ahead and picked it up.

I am excited, but man do I feel old.

    I"m jealous. I have a 3 row Trailblazer. It’ll hold 7, but it’s a headache to move the middle row around. I used to have a minivan and I’m ready for one again. Cool or not…doesn’t matter anymore. We’re not cruisin’ downtown Mayberry anymore, are we? I would give my right pinkie finger for a Nissan Quest. Sigh….

    Congratulations, Big Daddy!!! You think you can haul 6 youth with you. The first time you have to take Nathan’s seat out of it, you’ll get lazy and decide not to do it again.

    Hahahahahahaha!!! *points at you* Hahahahaha!!!

    OK, I confess…we just bought one, too. *sigh*

    I swore I’d NEVER drive a minivan (I’m a vintage Mustang type of girl). We’re now at a church without vans, and we realized that just two extra seats would make all the difference in the world on a Wednesday night, so we finally succumbed.

    We got a big ol’ used 2002 Dodge Grand Caravan with removable seats, and hubby Scott loves it. It fits his larger *ahem* frame, and he’s got lots of space to leave stuff lying around. ;o)
