Purchasing

So, a little while ago someone told me that their sister (or sister in law or cousins sister or someones sister) had trouble fitting three baby car seats across the back seat of their car.
I took that information on board, told Cade that we should measure it up, and then didnt do much else about it until last weekend when Cade washed the car and we thought – what a great time to trial the 3 seats across the back seat. What we learnt was that there was no way that we were getting three car seats across the back seat of our car.
So, we did a bit of researching and what we found was basically you have to buy special slim line car seats (which lets just say are not very cheap and we would have had to buy three of them) OR get a car that does fit three car seats across the back seat.
So – introducing new/old car that does successfully fit three normal car seats across the back seat and has other cool things like auto windows and cruise control. Its a 2006 Holden Commodore VZ Wagon that has 10cm more back seat than our old car – yes thats right 1o whole centimetres.
Special shout out to Kenny the car guy from Hillis Ford Wagga Wagga who helped us out with the purchase and trade in. He will ever be remembered as the man who “took” our old car and gave Maisie a blue balloon. Special times.

    aaah i thought that might have been a problem! and i also thought you guys would get a gigantic 4WD, but nice to see you got a nice shiny station wagon instead…you can always fit two and even three more kids in the back boot area now too you know 😉
