Passenger Safety Week! Enter to #Win a Diono Car Seat!

Just a reminder that TODAY is the last day to enter to win a Diono Car Seat in celebration of Passenger Safety Week! As you can see in the picture above and the two below, we get a lot of use out of ours. My son is 9 and he still rides in a car seat (our Diono goes up to 120 lbs!). I say the longer you can leave them in there the better. The Diono helps boost him up over window height too, so he can see where we're going when we are on the road.
