My new truck!
We bought a truck yesterday. A Ford F-150 Lariat...or something. And get this, it's mine! Well, mine to drive around...my primary mode of transportation. Bryan and I have been talking about a truck for ages. Every time we need to haul something we call my Dad to borrow his truck or Bryan's bro. Kevin for his trailer. With so much landscaping going on in our new yard and with plans to build an out-building in our backyard, we have lots of hauling needs. Maybe it was time to buy our own mode of hauling. Couple that with Ford's gargantuan sale on trucks and voila! We traded in my Ford Freestyle for this truck. (This is our 4th Ford in 15 years. Ford, as you probably can guess, really likes us.) Believe it or not, it not only fits all 6 of us but actually has more leg room. Brandon thinks it's the coolest thing ever. The 3 older kids are already fighting over who gets to sit in the front with Mom and Dad. I feel like I'm driving a beast of a vehicle...but I'm sure I'll get used to it. Did you ever think of me as the kind of girl who would drive a big truck??
