Firsts - Installment #1
We bought our first MINIVAN! I say "first," because I can only assume we will have to purchase at least one more. My dad found us a good deal and we sold one of our Tauruses (or as we called them, the "Tauri") and are very happy with our purchase.
In fact, we are pretty much convinced that we would not have made it on our 5 1/2 hour journey to celebrate Christmas without it! Yes, that is a full van WITHOUT the back seats!
Not only is the van helpful in carting all of our stuff around, I find is simply wonderful for traveling with an infant. If she is sleeping or content, I can sit in the front with Jason. If she is discontent, I can hop in the back. And, it is much easier to nurse and change diapers in at the many random gas stations that we stop at.
And lastly, I think I have only had to visit the chiropractor once since we got it! It is helping my back with how easy it is to put the carseat into.
Thank you to the inventor of the minivan!
Stay tuned for future installments of "Firsts!"
