….A Ford Econoline E-three-fifty!
And he even put on the antlers and nose that I’ve insisted on decorating “my” vehicle with for the past three years (to his chagrin). Is that devotion or what?
(Seriously, I’m more touched that we now have a van that we’re not going to outgrow in the next few years–much less weeks!)
We took it for a family drive today. I haven’t driven anything this large since college but I am enjoying it. Haus Meister is relieved that six months of research and haggling has paid off. Trooper enjoyed the vista afforded by the amount of windows, and Rascal kept pontificating on the enormity of our cavernous vehicle. Dinosaur and Princess took naps. Poor little dears; our three youngest now have colds.
Rascal was less than sentimental about the departure of our now traded-in Odyssey. He went inside the dealership with his Daddy, inspected the pamphlets of Mustangs (especially pictures of ones with stripes, as any striped car wins its way into Rascal’s heart), received a balloon for his cuteness and shook hands with some of the managers. No doubt they see him as a potential Mustang buyer when he graduates college.
