The day has come..

Welcome the newest member of our family. Our new 2001 Ford Windstar van. Yesterday was the day we purchased this van and our lives changed forever. My wife moved one step closer to becoming a soccer mom and me, well I just look like a typical dad now.
The car is in great shape for being a 2001 and only has 67000 miles on it so I hope that it can give us double that if we treat it nicely. My brother-in-law, who works for a Ford dealership, was able to snag this deal for us as it had just been traded in that same day (thanks again).
The kids certainly have worked it in already and we have already had a few crying fits and toys are scattered throughout the inside. Word of advice, don't put puzzles on top of the van if you are prone to forgetting them. Rylan now has one less puzzle because of my mistake.
My only concern at this point with the car is the massive amount of room in it. My wife will have an uncontrollable urge to fill it with goodies from Disneyland, Target or really anywhere else.
