Last weekend Adam and I decided there wasn't enough going on in our lives right now....only a new house and a baby on the way. So we bought a truck!
Seriously, Adam's 2002 Volkswagen GTI was a really fun little car for him, but the key word in that sentence is little. It had a backseat, but it definitely wasn't big enough for an adult to sit back there, much less a car seat and baby gear. And over the past year his car had many problems. It broke down regularly and we basically spent a lot of money each month repairing it. So we decided to stop wasting our money and just buy him a newer car!
We bought a 2007 Ford F150 FX2 Sport. It's a black 4-door truck with a really big comfy back seat. Perfect for moving, going camping, and hauling around baby stuff!
It was hard saying goodbye to the GTI. (We traded it in to the dealership). Adam adored that car but as many people have told us, it was time for us to buy a "grown-up" car. Adam really likes his new truck and I liked the price, so in the end we're happy about our purchase. Next up: House and Baby!
