Our new ( used ) ride

David got me a car.

I keep insisting it is The Family Car, but have yet to fully convince him of it. :)

It's a 2007 Yukon XL SLT ( I had to get him to explain what all that meant - basically it means it is the long version with nicer "trim" ) that came all the way from IDAHO.

I know.

He keeps apologizing for it being maroon, but I think it's pretty cool. He researched it for a long time. It had to fulfill a bunch of criteria, eg : extensive safety features, cargo space, towing capacity ( for our airstream ), second row bench seat ( for the baby's car seat to go in the middle seat ), 4 wheel/2 wheel REAR wheel drive/all wheel drive ( I had to learn what all that meant as well ) etc etc etc.

My poor hubs racked his brain over it for weeks on end, and finally found this car in Idaho. AND it had very low mileage on it, with only 1 owner, for a reasonable price.

It arrived yesterday while we were at Taco Tuesday, and so David and Lin went off to get it from the transport guy.

It seats up to 8 people, with great storage/cargo space.

I like that it's got rear controls for some stuff

And that Jaxon gets his own air/heat in the back

"wow, there's a lot of space back there, mummy"

"everybody was Kung Fu fighting..."

I know, it's quite large and long, and driving it will take some getting used to, but thank God, parallel parking is a rarity here, and we will be going down the road with hubby knowing "that both his babies are as safe as can be".
