So we really did it, we really did! We bought a van. Several hours and much himming and haing later we settled on one and I really love it! I know its so silly that I am so excited about this but I have wanted a minivan for so long, probably since we were pregnant with Bella, but alas it was never a neccesity. James was so sweet and thoughtful throughout the entire process, even though he didnt understand why some things were important and why it was such an emotional experience for me , he supported me and listened. Lets hope it give us many good years of use.

Here is a pic of the bad boy we picked out. One of the major selling points for me was that it had 8 seats (which was hard to find) and in comparison to the other ones we looked at it was so much more spacious with tons of storage space and just totally family friendly. After we got home and put the kids in bed we just went out and sat in it for a while, so fun! It was like a little mini-date playing around with the different gadgets. Toyota really thought of everything when they made this car. It is complete with a hook to hang my purse on and 16 cup holders, yes we counted, it was like playing hide n seek, we kept finding them all over the place.

Very, very awesome!! John may need some convincing one day (in the far off future)of letting us get a mini-van...BUT when the time comes Toyota might be the trick :)

We're excited for you guys! We love our van. I wish I had made it more important to get the optional 8th seat. Ours only seats 7 which is usually fine, but there have been many times that it would have been VERY nice to have that 8th seat!
