New Van!!!!

As promised!!! Here is a blog about my van. We bought a used 2005 Kia Sedona with relatively low miles. It isn't too fancy but it is perfect for us! I really enjoy that it has rear air and heat for the kids in the back seats! I really need to figure out a name for our van. Maybe I will let the kids help choose the name.
First day in the new van. Asher looves sitting in the back.

Sooo tired after a long day of play.

Asher too.
Both of the kids loove the van. Asher keeps asking when Bethany is going to come so we can put her in the new van too. He is sad that he has to wait awhile.
I am especially excitied to take the van on our road trip to Chicago over Fourth of July weekend. I think it will help to make the trip more pleasant. Though more expensive since it uses more gas. Oh well. At least gas prices are kind of coming down.
Well at least now you have seen our newest family vehicle, especially bought to accommodate our newest family member.


  1. I was sad when I moved to a van but at that time we had just gotten our third child (she came via adoption) and the Accord I loved just didn't work. Well, now we have four, so the van is even more of a necessity. I still mourn the loss of my Accord. I loved it. But I will admit, the van is much appreciated as we hop about town and travel on trips!

  2. I like you're van its nice.

  3. Very nice! How does it drive?

    We are thinking about getting a new vehicle in the form of a mini-van as well. Three kids in the backseat of the Buick is do-able, but tight. And Daphne wouldn't be in the center . . .

  4. Teagn--I enjoy our van and I think it drives nicely. I researched vans and the Kia Sedona came up to be the most affordable but still ranked pretty well as far as mini vans went. I had a Kia Spectra (standard car) before this and liked it--so hopefully this one will be good for us too.
