I need a bigger car!

I don’t know how my Dad did it. He used to squeeze all five of us into his sedan (with pillows, bolsters and all) and drove us to some land far, far away and we survived the trip! He is still doing it now though this time I am rarely in his car anymore. I have my own family of 3 now and already we are finding it almost impossible to travel from point A to point B comfortably without the need to ‘toss something out of the car’ at every rest stop for extra space!
Just recently we went for a weekend excursion out of town. The plan was to go for a 2D/1N getaway at a resort somewhere and a short visit to my hometown after that upon check-out.
For that we needed to bring Ethan’s bicycle, stroller and more. 
How do you fit a bicycle into your car when you have luggage bags, stroller, child car seat and an alligator? (o.O)
We ended up ditching the child car seat as there was just not enough space in there! We buckled Ethan to the car seat instead. 
But how am I supposed to drive with that alligator on my head like that? (>_<) Should we ditch the alligator too? But Ethan will SCREAM his lungs out!!!!!!! So Alligator must bawak jugak no matter what.. *roll eyes*
We ended up having a loooooooooong, cramped and tiresome journey! If only I have a more spacious car! Darling…. hint! Hint!
