New Car!

We dropped some cash this weekend! Kyle took his car (a 2001 Infiniti QX4) into the shop on Saturday morning only to discover that there were some "issues" that were going to cost quite a bit to fix. Frankly, it was going to cost more than we dreamed of putting into it given it's age and that we've racked up some miles on it. He's had the car forever and it's definitely seen better days but as luck would have it, it decided to completely fall apart on us two months before we have a baby due ; ) I guess it's good that we discovered the issues now as opposed to after Kate arrives!

Anyway, both of us despise car shopping...but with so few weekends left before Kate gets here, we knew we had to take advantage of the time we have now to pick out another vehicle. So...we tried to make it quick and painless. Who needs to spend hours upon hours at dealerships with car salesmen haggling with you??!! We spent a couple of hours online looking at a few options for certified pre-owned SUV's, low mileage and under warranty...and then quickly acted. We found this awesome Toyota 4Runner. It's a 2007 and is in fantastic condition. We got a deal on it and traded in Kyle's Infiniti and PRESTO...we weren't sad to leave the Infiniti on the lot and drive off in something in much better shape!

Kyle is like a kid in a candy store! It's been a while since he's upgraded his vehicle and he's always loved the 4Runners.
