Our New Ride!

20130517-211700.jpg

Sadly, I had to say goodbye to my beloved Ford Edge. I loved that car, but it won’t hold five car seats! So we started researching and checking out vehicles. We looked at Suburbans and Yukon XL, minivans and a couple others but we realized that even if they could fit five car seats, it would be a huge pain actually getting the seats in the car, not to mention the cargo space we’d need for a double and triple stroller. So we found these passenger vans. We looked at the Mercedes Sprinter (the ones FedEx uses), the Chevy Express and the Ford Econoline. It was so hard to find one in good condition, with low mileage, all at a price we could afford. We found one, but just weren’t ready to buy. We figured we would wait until the babies arrive, but then we found this one! The deal was great and we just couldn’t pass it up.
So here she is!! She drives great and I’m actually getting the hang of it! Parking will be another story, though, so for now I’ll be the one in the last spot, walking a mile to the store!!

  1. We will have 6 kids… and we went with a Ford Econoline 15 passenger… One word of advice… pick the larger van, as these do NOT have trunk spaces and it is hard to get groceries or haul a stroller around.

    • We have the 12 passenger, and took the last seat out. So there’s enough room for all the kids plus tons of cargo space. We found an incredible deal and knew this size would be big enough, so we went for it!
