Mini-van...

So, the time is coming.

Like getting really, really close.

The Sub.aru is going to get traded. My once upon a time "mom car" is already been/being out grown. It will likely be a better fit in a few months when the boys turn around in their car seats, but in reality, the amount of stuff required for traveling with twins + our monster very well loved stroller + monster car seats = a need for a much larger car! I am so excited to be able to get everyone inside the car and then worry about getting everyone strapped in and ready to go. Seriously, I HATE standing in the rain and also as the boys get older it is becoming more possible to get in and out of stores without the stroller, but getting one to stand with me while I strap the other in-- IMPOSSIBLE. Its time. I kind of didn't think I was ready, but the time has come and as we think about adding to our family I know it is one of those things that just cant be avoided.

So, my dear readers, which one do you have? Have you rented one on a vacation that you loved? We aren't planning to buy new- it is just not our style. At this very moment we are almost certain, we'll buy a Honda Odyssey.

Have rented a Toyota Sienna, while I don't want a van, it was a nice one!

I know our time is coming as well...our family car is a Subaru Outback and our other car is a Honda Civic. Both work great for every day to day things, but taking trips is cramped in the Outback!! I know a minivan is on the horizon. I am hoping to wait until the Subaru is paid off before we need it. It has to happen... Good luck to you on your mini van shopping!!

I nominated you for an award you have probably already won, so don't feel like you have to play along. You're blog has just been good for me, so I wanted to share/recognize that. KinderCoaster
