For the past few months, our 10-year-old sedan has been on borrowed time, failing bit by bit. Reluctantly, we finally came to the decision that it was time to go car shopping.
On the afternoon of Election Day, after 4 hours, 2 red balloons, and about 50 almonds, we ended up as proud owners of a Scion xB. Though we both didn't initially love its boxy style, after the test drive, we knew it was a good fit for our family. It's nice to have a little more room without having a massive car, and I now find its quirky looks positively endearing.
We tried to decide what to name it, and C came up with the winning suggestion. So, I present to you, the latest addition to our clan: Snowbox!
