My new wheels

I am the proud (yes, proud!) new owner of a 2012 Toyota Sienna!  As some would say, I'm officially a loser cruiser!  And I LOOOOOOVE it!  We got home after dark so I didn't get good pictures, but here are a few that we did take.

Tyler told me that he could definitely see me as a "van mom" :)

One of the MANY reasons why we went with a van over an SUV...the aisle to crawl through to the back.  With an SUV, I would have two car seats and in order for someone to get into the back, I would have to take a car seat out (which for those of you who don't have kids, is a huge pain in the ass) so I could fold the seat down.  No need to remove car seats with a van.  If/when we have a third baby, Kyla will be able to easily crawl back there.

A little fancier and many more features than my Stratus!

The pictures are hard to tell, but the color is Salsa Red Pearl.

Another reason to love it...see how far back the passenger seat is?  Even when Kyla's car seat was behind it, her feet had plenty of room and weren't scrunched up against it.  With an SUV, the front seats would have to be way up.  If I'm spending money on a new vehicle, we are going to be comfortable!
I forgot to take a picture of the way back and how much storage room there is, but there is a ton!

So, there you have it!  I am a van mom!  And I sort of want to just go cruising around because I love it that much.  If you don't want to be my friend anymore, check ya later :)
