Ladies and Gents- It's done! The minivan purchase has been made. We opted to go with the Honda Odyssey Touring. We ordered it today and it's expected to be delivered in 2-3 months. I know, hard to believe they're THAT much in demand-- well, that and the disaster in Japan certainly doesn't help matters when it comes to production.
Anywhooooooo, in a few months, yours truly will be an official minivan rollin' Momma! We picked out a black one--I thought it was the sportiest-looking color of the bunch (making the transition to mommy-mobile a little easier).
Good news is that it comes loaded with a ton of cool features to keep my Daughter & BITO (bun in the oven) entertained during long car trips. It's hard to believe I'm saying it, but I can't freaking WAIT for it to get here!! Woot woot! I mean, it's not nearly as cool as an old V-dub wagon but what can I say, I'm a sucker for the Navigation, DVD & Bluetooth. Pretty sure none of those options are available in the Volkswagen. In fact... are there even floorboards in that bus-mobile? :-/
