Our garage is complete!

Joe and I took the plunge today and bought a new car. We have been a one car family since we've been married, but it didn't matter too much when we lived in Reno because Joe had a work truck. Since May I have been stuck at home with no means of transportation. Joe only works half days on Friday so instead of spending time together or doing something fun, Friday has become our appointment day since I can have the car. We also figured that there was no use getting a vehicle that would only fit two children as we hope to expand our family even more in a couple of years. Luckily we used our Costco membership to get a smokin deal. (If you have a Costco membership and are looking at purchasing a new car, go through them, totally worth it!). There are so many extras that we weren't looking for, but make the SUV that much more fun! Here is a look at our new mode of transportation. (We still have the Toyota and that will be paid off this month which means only one car payment, woo-hoo).
It has a back up camera that shows up on this screen on our console. It is so cool! Plus it has dual climate control and all other nifty stuff.  This is a shot of all the room the kids now have. The only problem is that they aren't close enough anymore for Blake to help us get things to Kalli. 
On the way home Blake kept telling me "mommy, we have a new car". Yes, we do and I couldn't be more excited!

I'm glad to see you're doing your best to keep the economy going. Can I convince you to buy another computer now?

My husband would DIE for anything by Nissan. He's been drooling over a Titan for about three years now!

Nice vehicle!!! We have a Nissan ALtima and we love it and would love to get a Nissan SUV in a few years - good to know that we can go through Costco for one! Congrats and enjoy!

I have the black version of this same SUV and I LOVE it!!! I looked long and hard to find an SUV that had smilar features to my Lexus. The armada has almost all the same plus a few different. I can't live without the smart key and back-up camera!!Plus I wanted a back seat that folded into the ground. You will never regret buying this!!
