Here we go!--Update

UPDATE 5/23:

Okay, love the Radian and it fit in our Camry. Although, if we were any taller, it would not work for us at all. Luckily, we are short. We still have the same issue though. Isaiah's booster is too wide and will not fit anywhere in the backseat where he can access the seatbelt buckle. So, we are going to see if Toyota makes seatbelt extenders for the buckle. I asked my DH if turning Keira FF would help, but he said it would actually be worse. So, we are back to our carseat dilemma. Isaiah will be too tall for any 5-point harness system soon. I am not sure what we are going to do. We have tried 2 boosters. I need to do some research and see if I can find something narrow, but it seems that we have reached the point where a new vehicle might be in order. So, note to all vehicle manufacturers, please, please remember that some families may have more than two kids. Work with the car seat manufacturers to make carseats that will work for those families! I have never been more frustrated. We cannot help what vehicle we have right now. We bought the Camry one year before the twins came along. No one plans on twins, it happens. Sigh! Sad

I bought two carseats from Diapers.com today. I saved $168 over Babies R Us btw a cheaper price by $60 and 10% off for being a new customer. :woohoo: We ended up going with a Radian, so pray that we can get them to install RF in our Camry. We really had no choice. The Radian is 1.5 inches narrower than the Britax Boulevard, which appears to be the second narrowest convertible on the market. So, let's pray they work. I ended up getting them in Petal, which I was not a fan of at all. However, all the rest were a gray/black combo and I was afraid they would get hot in the summer. So, the girls will have pink seats until they need a booster or can sit in the regular seat without anything, but a seatbelt. Biggrin

Evan is REALLY comfortable in his Radian I hope the girls are too! A friend with a carrolla found this: http://www.car-seat.org/showthread.php?t=32350 and it helped her get a good fit for the driver's seat. GL! 3 across has to be a challenge!

Well I'm glad you like the radians - Evan loves his lol any hope the Radian booster would work? I think it's narrow like the car seats.

I keep going back and forth on a new vehicle. Decisions decisions!

I know jack about car seats, I got Harley's Evenflo one from Khols.com bc they had a special at the time for every $50 you got $10 Khols cash back so for her $170 car seat bc it had the best rating and what my friend told me i should look for and I also got 20% off of it and $30 Kohls cash back so I made out on her car seat.

BTW looking at the photo you have in your siggy I cant get over how big they got! they look so different from when they were little. Too stinking cute.
