Why are my girls are so tickled?
Because they're rollin' in style! :)
I have to say that this was a very emotionally satisfying purchase. Our last car was a brand new 2003 Accord and we bought it right after a really devistating pregnancy loss with the idea that we'd never need it for more than transporting our teenage son and is musical gear around. The Accord was a great car but there wasn't much room for anything other than our 2 Britax Marathon carseats and the double stroller.
This minivan means a lot to me. It's a big silver symbol of a very long struggle to bring more children into this family. When I drove it for the first time today, I looked back at my babies in their seats and actually broke into tears pulling out the driveway.
