Here it is

My new minivan :)

So pretty! So nice & comfy & spacious & full of areas to keep things. Yay! And I can put the kids in separate rows so I can hop on back & sit by one of them if I need to.

I'm so happy.

I never dreamed I'd get this giddy over a minivan :)

We did it!

We got a minivan! It's too late to do much other than post a pic from Toyota's website, but I just had to announce it! We totally thought we were going with the Honda Odyssey, but we looked at the Sienna's & fell in love. And I did NOT like the features (or should I say "lack" of features) on the Odyssey.

So now it's official: I'm a suburban minivan mama. Oy vey! At least I'm not a soccer mom....yet!

Mom was so excited when we told her that Dave & Nicole were coming up to meet Olivia over 4th of July weekend. She'd wanted to host a family party for quite sometime, so this was perfect! Unfortunately Dad's new barbeque hadn't arrived yet, but that didn't stop us. We invited everyone!

Dave & Nicole came up with the kids, and Kathy was her for the week anyhow. Dad's cousin Marsha drove over from Roseville, and Brenda came up with her gang from Oakdale. Michael couldn't make it, but his daughter Danielle & her son James accompanied Brenda & Sabrina. It was great to have so many kids together. We didn't even notice that they were there; they were having so much fun! And since everyone wanted to hold Olivia, I was able to enjoy myself as well.

It was a wonderful afternoon & evening and we can't wait to see everyone again.
