No vaca in store for us...but something else is!

One last thought for the day. This past week, my whole family has been at the Gorge, one of my favorite vacation spots for the summer, but this year we weren't able to go because our brand new babe. So I posted some of last summers pictures of mine and Jose's "professional" boarding and skiing skills to remind me that I will be able to go next year, and that my life isn't over because I had to miss one summer. It is the first time that I have missed the trip! Wish we could have been there.




















But in the mean time, Jo told me that we could have some fun of our own here at home, and we did, we certainly did.....

This month, our lease on the Durango was finally up, so I told Jo that we shoud go car shopping just to look around and see what we would want to purchase, just to get an idea. And the first thing out of his mouth was "Don't get any ideas!" So we broused this week just for fun and...well... we ended up getting a new car! But instead of leasing it we own it. (Well, we will own it when the loan is up right?!) She isn't just a beaut!, but she is also very practicle. You have to just imagine this, we now have a family of five, in which one member includes a big, bulky car seat. But just imagine us all jammed into one little Honda Civic!! Talk about family toegetherness! Our new car includes third row seating which suits our family perfectly now, considering that we probably won't be taking it anywhere because of the cost of gas!? Right? In that case she makes a great drive way decoration!
