Today was THE day! David finally purchased a new vehicle to drive. The old car was purchased just a month after mom died in '99 and had been a great car during our 10 years of driving it... but the repairs it needed with the transmission, AC and tie rod were just too expensive to complete....
so a day at the Chevy dealer.... and after test driving a few... and somewhat fun time of negations... while the kids played in the showroom... David ended up driving home a new 2009 Silverado Pick up truck.
Paul Thomas sure did give it a good going over... 5 point inspection NOTHING - more like a 500 times button pushing, lever pulling, door locking inspection. LOL :P He did everything except blow the horn on the "Texas Edition" Truck on the showroom floor.
While the girls just played and posed and giggled ;)
While the paperwork was being signed off on the kids stayed in our van watching their new Joana Veggie Tales DVD from Aunt Melanie ;) and Nora found some suckers for her and Olivia. Thank Goodness the babies were buckled or I may have had to consider a trade if sticky got everywhere LOL :P
and I would have never guessed what came next... I was for sure that the girls would be on a sugar rush overload all night... but nope.. Look who was asleep when we pulled in our driveway at home ;)
Yep, looks like the new turck passes Paul Thomas' 500 point inspection ;)
David I'm so happy for you and your new truck! ;) I hope you enjoy it for years to come! ~bonnie
