Meet Matilda...

Tilly for short. She's our new 2001 Honda Odyssey. Although she's five years old, she's not very well traveled and has only 35,500 miles. I've only been driving her for a couple of days now, but I think she'll be a good fit for me and Lauren. Although she doesn't have any bells and whistles, besides power doors and windows, she's VERY roomy and seems pretty comfortable so far.

I have a feeling that Tilly may be taking the Arizona gang to our Disney Waiting Mommas Summit in April.

This morning I dropped my Dad and Step-mom off at the airport to head back home to New York. Here's a shot of me and my Dad from this morning.

I spent the last five days hanging out with them and my brother, sister-in-law, nieces and nephew...we had a really nice time.

I hate saying good-bye to my Dad...we don't see each other very often and I always get teary-eyed and feel a bit down for a while. I think it's because when he leaves I realize how much I wish he lived closer. We did have a really great visit though and I'm sure we'll be seeing him again once we bring Lauren home.

Nice new ride! Joel's brother has an Odessy and loves it. I'm sure you will as well.
Glad to know that you had a nice time with your dad. My parents used to live far away and I know how hard it is to say goodbye after a good visit.
Thinking about you.

I really like the Odyssey. We even looked at one a week ago. Nice.

I know how you feel when Dad leaves. Before my parents moved closer it was tough to see them go.

I know what you mean about saying good-bye. It's hard! I always get a bit teary too.

You will LOVE your mini-van, and you will need it! :-)

Love the new ride. I had a minivan when the kids were younger and absolutely loved it!!!(especially when we had 5 kids) Now I have a 4WD SUV which will work fine for just me, dh and maddy. Enjoy the Odyssey!

LOVE your car!!! I've been eyeing off the Odysey for a little while now... but I've only had my forester for about 10 months!!! Not quite time to change over yet!!!

Love em though! It'd have to be the sexiest of all the Mum-mobiles!!!
