Yes, the van is here. I will make no excuses, beg for friends, or try to justify it any longer. I haven't felt this happy since I gave birth to my children (and married JO!). It is single handedly the best thing I have ever ridden or driven. There is nothing like holding the keys up in the kitchen and automatically starting your car and letting it heat up in the cold mornings. Or, holding a baby in one hand and a toddler in the other and your doors automatically sliding open. Or, letting a toddler crawl in on his own because it's so low to the ground. Or, not having to worry about having new DVD's to change out because you can watch T.V. instead. Or, not having to pay as much for a Suburban as you would a house. The list could go on and on. I will forever be a minivan driver and I am a better person for it. You can all make fun of me and vow that you will never drive one, but I feel sorry for you all. Just allow yourself to give in for one test drive and you will be hooked. I will never be afraid to go on a road trip again.
P.S. I'm sure everyone wants pics but I actually haven't taken any good ones yet. It's a silver Chrysler Town and Country if you are curious.
