New Car....Sort of.

So a few months ago my mom called me and asked if I'd like to exchange vehicles with her. It took me by surprise, and I didn't know what to say. Then she explained that they have the truck already and she'd like a car to drive to work (she drives an hour each way to work). So I told her I'd discuss it with the husband, and of course we both thought it was definitely a trade in our favor. We felt pretty guilty and called my mom back to express our feelings about the trade. She assured us that it was what her and Lucas wanted, and she knew we'd need more room with a baby and growing family. I went to St. Johns a few days ago to visit Jordan and her baby, and came back with the Honda Pilot! It's a very nice car, and we are so grateful to have it. I don't have a picture yet, but it's silver. I have no idea the year. So if you see us cruising the Pilot, no we didn't fall into tons of money, we just have a very generous family.

Oh my. I am so jealous. We LOVE the Pilot. We are still driving our two beaters (which we can only find the keys to one) that both break down randomly and leave us stranded. What a great family you have.

Love your mom! And of course she would say, "no really, it's what I want." You would say the same thing to your daughter down the road. What a great mom. Enjoy the pilot. Those are cute!

Nice - I'd be all for a car swap with my parents, but I'm sure they wouldn't be too hip on the idea of having a car with 1 hubcap...

Thanks so much for coming to see us - your little Maddie is so gorgeous, Jessie.
