We've had our white Astro van for 7 years and it has been been great. Well, great until we had to endure this summer without an air conditioner. It's sort of embarrassing to walk into church or the grocery store all sweaty. Those 100 degree days were especially rough. The A/C was just going to be more to fix than is worth putting into a 10 year old vehicle.
We finally decided to get a new (to us) vehicle. We still need lots of room with 3 kids to tote around, so we knew it would be either a van or an SUV (I was pulling for an SUV). A good friend had her suburban for sale and we snatched it up. I just love it and feel like the queen of Sheba to have something so nice to drive. It's so quiet and smooth.
So here comes the part where I need the help of my beloved readers. We are a rather strange family in that we always name our family vehicles. The van, because we are so funny and witty, was named "Vanna White", but we have yet to come up with something for our "new" red suburban. I know how smart you all are, so I'm sure you'll come up with something fantastic.
I'll let the kids pick a name from your ideas and the winner will have our undying love and appreciation. :)
By the way, anybody want to buy a white van with no air conditioning? We'll give you a good deal!
