I say stick with the mini van if it has 7 seatbelts for the kids, because climbing all over an suv is awful. Or upgrade to a 12 passenger van.
Just wanted to say, I totally agree with this. We had a Yukon XL (Suburban) before our 15 passenger van. It fit everyone, but it was really a pain and hard to get everyone in and out. We traded it in when our youngest twins were a couple months old. Someday when all our kids are out of carseats and don't need help, maybe we will go back to it, but I doubt it. It is cramped with 8 people in there. (Ours was 8 seater. 3 in 3rd row, 3 in second row and 2 in front.)
