My Toyota Tundra was a wonderful truck and I was not in excessive favor of selling it, but it became daily apparent that we were quickly outgrowing it. I could barely squeeze the boys into the carseats in the backseat and I knew that once Lochlan was in the bigger carseat I would have a whole different challenge - putting him in the bed of the truck just didn't seem like a reasonable option. So... we sold my truck on Saturday and by the grace of God, found this lovely beast on Sunday. We drove ALL THE WAY TO GEORGIA (a 10 hour round trip drive) with our little pack and picked it up. It is a dream come true! We got great deals on both ends (selling and buying) and really feel blessed! Mr. Knightly (so named because it's black as night and all the girls love it) has room for 7 with the third row seating, plenty of space for my baby gear (stroller, backpack, diaper bags, etc.), horse blankets and groceries. It drives like a dream. And best of all, it has an engine big enough to still pull my horse trailer. Awesome. What do the boys think of it? "Paugie, you need to put your seatbelt on because we're going to go chase some trains with Mommy's new truck." Madigan's explanation for why Declan should let Mommy put him into his carseat without going into a fit of despondency. I never saw chasing trains in my future, but there it is!
