I loved my van, and honestly, there are things about it that I know I will miss. It had a lot more room for carrying stuff in it--you know--all the kid stuff kids need/want--books, coloring books, toys, diaper bag, etc, but the van had a lot of miles and sometimes acted like it was going to conk out on me. We could have gotten a one year old van for less money than the Expediton, but I dislike buying new cars, so we went with the Expedition because it will last longer, and in the long run, as the kids get older, it will suit our needs just fine. Plus, my parents had an Expedition years ago, and I loved it then. I love this one that we got. Emily and MIL love the DVD player!
You would think MIL was a kid the way she is so excited about that option.
