Well, Jennifer has convinced me to purchase a new (used) mini-van. I'm not sure why we need a new set of wheels; afterall, we can all fit in the Rio. Andrew is a lanky young man, standing nearly six feet tall; Richard is a hefty brute of a boy and could serve on the defensive line for a football team; Elliot's still in the car seat... I don't know why everyone was complaining... Well, in actuality, the boys have never complained, but Jenny decided enough was enough.
So, we found a 2003 Kia Sedona with just over 15000 miles on it at Priority Chevrolet. Our sales associate was Angela Skinner; if you're in the market for a used car or a new Chevy, I strongly recommend Ms. Skinner. She was honest; she's customer-focused; she's not your "typical" car sales person. They were originally asking $18,349; our price today was under the "Private Party Value" per Kelley's. We didn't get a steal, but we didn't get ripped off, either. It was a fair price.
So, the long and short of it is this: we'll be cruising in a minivan starting this week.
