S-t-r-e-t-c-h-!

This is not a great photo, but I had to really crank the iPhone to get all of this baby in the Hipstamatic frame.


Our friends bought a limo for their family car, fer cryin' out loud! How fabulous is that? This is what happens when you have triplets before your Irish twins turn three. You need a real family wagon. With cupholders. And a privacy screen. And leather seats. And decanters! And a TV/VCR! And just enough curb space to park the thing!

It is a thing of laughable beauty. I hope our friends keep it and don't chicken out on this crazy wonderful eBay deal. Beats the pants off a minivan. They are a very special family and I think anything that helps them keep and share their great sense of humor as they navigate the winding roads of parenting five children three and under is a keeper.

I'm looking forward to my first ride in... what's its name, anyway? A 'mobile like that has simply got to have a classy name. Any suggestions? I'll pass 'em on.

WHAAAAAAAAAAAtttttttt? I am laughing- and I cannot stop! Andrew didn't believe me when I told them they bought a LIMO- until he saw the picture. (thanks for posting for proof!) WOW! Oh how I wish I was still in the neighborhood, just to see her driving that thing around!!

That is HIGHLARIOUS! My mom had 4 under three, but FIVE? You deserve a limo for that. And drive and a maid, too. they are lucky to have you for neighbors for sure! I LOOOOVE it. I think they should name the car Blanca.

How sweet is that! Imagine being dropped off at school every day in a limo (assuming they keep it that long)! I would suggest naming it Barnbilen; that's 'the kid car' in Swedish.

Ha ha, Tyson's old boss had one for his family car too! I thought it was so great when he used it for us to ride in to go to a work dinner party! I felt so fancy!
