On Friday, Art and I headed to Hot Springs for the week-end. We got a great deal on a hotel room where his office Christmas party would be on Saturday evening. Even though he has worked for the same company for five years we have never gone to the Christmas party (usually because I am nursing or we have a newborn.) We thought we would take advantage of the time without the children to finish up some shopping. Well, after buying some things for the children we decided to drive through a few car dealerships to see what kind of deals and incentives they have right now. Art had been doing a lot of research on 10-15 passenger vans because even though we have a 9 passenger Suburban, it is hard to get the children in and out of it. Nick, Alex, and Chelsea have to climb over the back seat to get in and with the new baby coming we could use some more space. Needless to say the dealership offered us a deal we couldn't refuse and we bought a 2007 Ford 15 passenger van. There is very little cargo room with all of the seats in it so we will be taking out the back seat and still have capacity to fit 11 people comfortably and no one will have to climb over any of the seats. We spent 3 hours at the dealership, but still made it back in time to get ready for the Christmas party. It was fun to get dressed up and go out, but I was really glad to get back home to the children on Sunday morning.
