mad moms in minivans

Well...we finally took the plunge!  We are now minivan owners.

This is the last picture I took of the kids piled 3 deep in the back seat of our 4Runner.  We had looked at minivans before Nolan was born and had decided to wait a little while longer.  Well....on the way home from the hospital we decided that maybe we should get the minivan sooner than later!

Even as excited as I was to get the was still bittersweet because that 4Runner had been with us from the beginning!  Geoff bought it before we met...but then we went on our first date in the 4Runner....our first family vacation....brought all 3 of our kids home in that car.....just lots and lots of time spent in that car!

When we were at the dealership and Geoff was moving all of our stuff from the 4Runner to the van it started raining....the girls were ecstatic and just getting into everything in the van...and Nolan was screaming his head off.  I too one last peak into the empty front seat, back seat, and back end, then hopped into the van before we got drenched.  I think all of the commotion {read: my kids} kept me distracted and so I didn't shed a tear.

Our kids in our new van before pulling out of the car lot.  Not sure if the seating arrangement will last, but we are loving all if the extra space, newness (to us), and I'm still getting used to all of the controls and such.

We're definitely in a new season of life with our 3 soon-to-be kindergartener, recitals for the girls, swimming, newborn baby boy, etc.
And it's a joy-filled, wild ride! (pun intended)

Welcome to the land of minivans! It's a great place to be. I LOVE my van. They are made for people like us!

Congratulations! Bet you will love it! I remember our minivan with fond memories. Our kids were much older, but we had some fun times in that van!
