Re: Family of 4 and a minivan-too much space?
We got our mini van before we had kids too...we had gotten a dog (St. Bernard) and were sick of stuffing him in the back of a 2 door car! Plus, we knew we planned on having kids soon. Now with 2 kids it is so easy to travel and not have to plan packing carefully because we can fit anything in (ours is an extended version, we fit a full size couch in the back with the seats out).
H...mom to three silly girls, 7, 5 and brand new!!!
Plus two dogs, and oh yeah, DH!
