Holy cow! Guess what I got?

Posted by   + Show Post

A new (to us) car!

We got a 2012 Mazda 5!  I finally have a vehicle that can fit more than a sedan!  Yeah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Using some 'stock' images here, as I am being lazy with hooking up my camera!

Here is the configuration on the inside (it seats 6).

It has van doors, but more of a hatchback look.

I have been secretly wanting this car for a while, can't believe it is mine!

Dh's mom came over today and we could all go out and go to ds2's soccer game in one car! Sounds like a small thing, but it is nice!

We actually don't have a big family, which is why I wanted this car...  It is smaller than a standard minivan and gets better mileage, but does allow us all to go somewhere as a family if one (or both) of our moms want to come along as well as allow us to bring home a friend for a playdate, etc...


My sedan technically seated 5, but with how small the middle seat was, it was not practical or even helpful.  Especially with one kid in a car seat and one kid in a hbb!

So with this car, we have the extra room, but for a family of 4, it is not overkill (as I felt a van would be).

Oh - and the colors I showed are the colors of our van - silver exterior, black interior.
