Welcome to the Family

It's been a long time coming, and long ago if you had told me just how much I would want one of these, I would have scoffed.  Now, I couldn't be any happier. We have a new and very welcome member of the family:

2007 Kia Sedona - name to be decided.  
Stomper has suggested "Ole Bessie." Bitty is leaning towards "Violet" in honor of my 1976 Volvo wagon which I drove in high school.  I loved Violet.  She died in my arms one stormy winter night....but I digress.  That's a story for another time.

 Isn't our Kia so shiny and blue and clean?  I am cringing at the thought of what the floor may possibly look like one year from now; I'm sure the debris will contain at least 50% french fries, same as my purse. But I will do my best not take for granted this currently clean vehicle. 

I'm so grateful to not have to buckle three kids in a squashed row of carseats I can't even tell you.  And look:  here's Bitty demonstrating the automatic doors:


My life has just gotten  much much easier.  Thank you.

We had a rental van for about a week and Elle cried when we had to turn it back in. The automatic doors were her absolutely favorite.

oh the shame - you are officially a van mom :) I am jealous - I wish I had a van now and I don't even have three kids to squish in my car... yet.

Welcome to the world of two-handed backing up. Enjoy the van...later it morphs into a suburban which is really just a truck with extra seat belts.
