Minivan debate

We have been needing a new car for awhile. You know, the ones that actually fit more than 2 car seats comfortably? Our jeep will fit 2 boosters and baby seat but that is after giving yourself carpal tunnel trying to buckle the boosters in which are CRAMPED up next to the baby seat. It's like a 10 minute process...and sometimes even bloody. It's a no-go with someone with little patience like myself.

So the minivan question arose???? Oh the look on Chay's face. Classic.

You see, I'm married to a motor sports kind of guy. He hauls dirt bikes and 4 wheelers on a weekly basis. Either to sell, fix up, buy, or ride. Fox bumper stickers and minivans don't mix. I don't think minivans mix well with any man really. I'm now convinced they somehow mess with manhood.- Along the same line as chick flicks and listening to Celine Dion.

I'm not a minivan fan either...but I would drive one if I had to. But THIS commercial has definitely changed my mind. You have to watch this...

every minivan family out there (who is basically everyone I associate with) this is for you...take pride in your swagger wagon.

and this one is for Chay...because a family man really can drive a minivan...

oh these commercials made me laugh the hearty laugh. The big chuckle and jerk motion that the Tomblin ladies are known for. Joette has the worse laugh and jerk out of all of us. She can become dangerous when she laughs. Don't make her laugh while she is driving.

Minivans are cool.

Hey what are you trying to say? My wagon gets us around. And my 16 year old son can't wait to get behind the wheel of it too! It runs and all 6 of us can fit! End of story.

HAHAHA These ads cracked me up! Thanks for the laugh.

I refuse to admit that I drive a minivan. If you ask me, a '94 Astro van is in a category all by itself. I choose to believe that I'm kickin' it retro style yo!

It's funny though because I was just asking Cami about her swagger wagon the other night. It looks pretty nice. ;)

I think that no one ever wants a mini van until the actually get one. It is the only way to go when you have more that 2 kids. I love our mini van. The big sliding doors are so easy to drag everyone in an out of. I could go on and on about it...if you need more convincing.
