The Transformation Is Complete
As of last night we are the owners of a 2008 Honda Odyssey.  I picked the dark blue and it is gorgeous.  I never thought I would say I loved a minivan.  Asked anyone, I swore I would never succumb.  But it is an awesome vehicle.  We got the EX-L which gives us everything but the navigation (not necessary) and the tvs in the back of the seats (not desired).  Leather, moon roof, power everything and so many features I am still making my way through the manual.  Good thing they have a quick start guide.  This was really the last big purchase we needed before the baby.  We took advantage of the end of the month and end of the quarter sales.  Plus the dealership was trying to break their own sales record so that made them extra motivated.  Say what you will, I scoffed at others myself, but this car rocks.
