Harper enjoyed showing off the minivan.
Harper loves the DVD player - and doesn't argue about the fact that we're only going to use it for long trips (like to Wisconsin)
Ah, trunk space! Room for a stroller and a kid (and probably some groceries).
So we are now the proud owners of a 2003 Honda Odyssey. It is newer than the car we sold, but has twice as many miles on it. That did seem a bit weird, that we would trade for a car with higher mileage, but it really was about the space and not about the condition of the car (my car was in great shape!). It's difficult to find a used minivan with all the bells and whistles, I guess people just drive them until they die. We're hoping to get a couple of years out of this one (maybe even 4?) and then be able to buy a brand new one. Is it too much to hope that there will be a hybrid minivan by the 2013 model year???
