To make it easier to "assist" Tonya with the blog posts when she really wants to post something, even if she doesn't know it yet, but she's tied up making quiche or something else equally or more important, I sort of broke into her account and added myself as a contributor. The kids think it's a good idea so it must be.
Anyway, here are some photos and a video tour of our new vehicle, a 2000 Chevy Venture. We still have the Exploder, but we also have a van now. It's only been about 10 years since we had two vehicles, so it's a big deal. It was getting difficult to get the kids and ourselves to all the different things we have going on, so we gave in because how else should one behave responsibly in times of economic uncertainty but by buying a car. Take that stimulant, you economy!
