Ollie's New Ride

After receiving Oliver's new wheelchair we quickly realized that putting it in and taking it out of our trunks would be no small task. The wheels would have to come off and the chair would have to be wrestled into the just wide enough opening.

So we decided that it was time to trade in Kate's car (affectionately known as "teal flash") and buy a van. We got a really good deal on a 2009 Sienna with only 14,000 miles on it. So far we're really happy with it.

Bye-bye teal flash! You served us well.

That's more like it.

Both mommy and Ollie are comfortable and smiling!

Oliver especially enjoys the leg room and us not bumping his head as we put him in and take him out of the car. In our other car his legs stick out between our two front seats and Kate continuously tickles them, so two thumbs up from Ollie.

Fold down seats make it much easier to bring my chair and wagon to Long Island for Thanksgiving.

We wouldn't have been able to make this purchase if it weren't for the generosity of our friends, family, and surrounding communities. We can't thank you all enough and feel so blessed to be supported by such wonderful people.
