My New Toy

This has been a very exciting and busy week for us. Mon. morning Weston got to come home. Drew took Mon., Tues., and Wed. off to help out with Autumn, then Drews mom came down Thurs. and Fri. and was a big help with both Autumn and Weston. She cooked, cleaned, changed diapers, and entertained Autumn, very very helpful to me since I was trying to take it easy to keep my blood patch in place.
Anywho! On Fri. our new toy arrived, we bought it back at the beginning of Jan. but it took this long to get to us. We finally have 2 cars again! We sold my Jeep back in May, taking us down to one car, which really wasn't so bad, but I had my days where it really bothered me that we had one car. Drew has a tiny car and so two cars seats in the backseat is very tight. I actually have to sit in the front seat with my knees in the dash just so Westons car seat fits properly. We needed something bigger!
We looked and looked at Suburbans and Tahoes but for one, I didn't like the idea of the hugeness of a Suburban; two, the gas mileage; three, there are a lot of Tahoes and Suburbans on the road. So we started looking at other SUVs that sat 7+. We bought a Toyota Sequoia, with low miles, it seats 8, drives smooth, and is really powerful.
This is what our family of 4 was squeezing into:

My car!Drew was getting all the insurance stuff squared away and Autumn was playing in the seat next to him.
