A Happy Hubby

My hubby is an especially happy man today.

And this is the reason why.

He has wished, dreamed, “window shopped” (online) and planned..........

And now he finally owns his own Chevrolet Silverado Z71 4 WD (not new, but new to us).

He’s walking around with a big grin on his face. It arrived Monday evening.

It looked like this when it arrived (from Delaware):

He removed the camper.

And starting the inevitable babying it and sprucing it up (with chrome).   Now it looks like this:

And the best part is that there’s no monthly note to go with it!   :)

We’ll be trying it out on our little road trip to Georgia tomorrow morning to see Kim, Chuck, Dakota and Shiloh.

The up side to that: More leg room inside the truck than my little Mazda 3 S for a road trip. The down side: Jason is going to be very picky about letting us eat and drink in it (at least for the first 6 months). ...............So if you see a lady and two kids sitting on a curb at a gas station with a snack and drink, that will probably be us.

Shhh.......Don't tell Jason, but we're really excited about it too!  :)

Woot! Nothing like a shiny new pickup~ and I can see why Jason must be grinning from ear to ear!
Happy Birthday, Jason, and let Tammy take the wheel every once in a while, okay? :)

Oooh, I love that truck. It looks baaaad, don't it? :P Bad like good. :) We have to call it the Avenger, okay? :)

Maybe...maybe the curb is worth it for the truck, eh?

I love you! 8!

Joy :)
