new (not-so-new) car

with the second taylor babe on the way jeff and i got anxious to up-grade cars. jeff had been driving the ol' black escort. awww, the escort... i love this car. it was my first big purchase. it got me through all of college and our newly-wed years. the best part about the escort was that it was a stick shift! i always feel like i'm a race car driver when i'm behind the wheel as my torso sways back and forth with every shift change.
then there's the mits. the most uncomfortable car known to man! i did feel cute driving it, but over-all it was a pretty ho-hum car.
anyway, both cars are small, and not very safe to drive in on these crazy arizona roads.
the day that cam was born we got this:



sweet huh? it is a 2005 nissan pathfinder, V6, fully loaded, leather interior, sunroof, third row seating, tow-package, 4-wheel drive, xm radio, after stock tires and off-road package. two best-of-alls': (1) we got it at an auction for a killer price and (2) it has awesome a/c with back seat upper air (this is a must in the arizona heat). even with gas prices we love the car and feel much more safe being up higher. oh, we feel like we look cool driving it too.
p.s. now we have an itching to get really out-doorsy and sporty with boating, kayaking, biking etc. we've always had this itch, but now we have something to tow the toys with...
