Fitting a family of five into a PT Cruiser, when two of the five are in ginormous car seats, is no easy feat. Runner Girl has gotten too tall and too "mature" to ride between two car seats. It got to the point that she couldn't buckle her seat belt. So I went shopping online and found an older used minivan. Showed it to The Rock and he said, "Let's go buy it! Right now!" HA!
We went the next day.
It was still there.
The van is big enough to hold our entire family, including Small Fry if she came for a visit. And we'd still have one spare seat belt.
Little Mister says he loves the "big car" and likes that he can get in and out himself.
Or maybe he just loves the DVD player.
