daddy's new "fancy car".



there is a history behind damian's new car...
he used to have a red/orangish 1964 nova back when we were footloose and fancy free... living on the beach all day without a care in the world... perusing around town with no destination in mind..
damian sold it when we moved to l.a. for a brief moment to attend ucla film school..
well, we quickly hightailed it back to san diego (l.a. just wasn't for us),
but we were without our sweet nova...
so fast forward years later..

last week this beauty fell into our laps and we seized the moment....
long story short.. damian is now the proud owner of this pretty... or handsome i mean, white 1963 nova in beautiful condition with only 68,000 miles on and it previously owned by a little old lady (i picture her with a bright scarf on her head and giant sunglasses!)

BUT... the fine print
the girls are not allowed in it ...
we stick them in a 10 airbag volvo...
and we no longer peruse around town with nowhere to go...
actually, we are always on a mission.. and in a hurry... and running late.. just a tad late..


ohh! makena says daddy looks "so fancy" in it..
i totally agree..

You are living my dream. I have had this thought of the future where my hubby and I drive around in a old classic with the windows down on a sunny day... Just loving each other. Someday we can have a driving club with the old classics together. Just need to find that guy. : ) You are adorable.

Stacey! I would LOVE to join your classics club! Where do I sign up!? Your guy will be the luckiest alive when he finds you! xo

Let us know if you want to drop the girls off for a bit, so the two of you can go cruising down the 101...
