Strollers Strollers and More Strollers

Yes, I bought more strollers (I have lost count over how many I've had through the past few years.) I bought a new double stroller for Disney, which I like. Still have my sit n stand stroller, works good for when I need that type. Had several single strollers but they had worn out their welcome. A few were in the shed over the winter and when I pulled them out, they had mildew on them (Yuck!) The McLaren had a broken wheel, the other McLaren was stolen in Disney a few years ago, the jeep single stroller had lost all the air in the tires and they couldn't be inflated again, etc. etc. etc.

So off I went in search of new, light weight, umbrella style strollers. In the back of my mind I thought I could always get more Mclarens, I did like them. But instead, in my search I went to www.overstock.com and found some that I love!! Yes, these Keekaroo strollers are awesome! They are sturdy, light weight, tall enough for John to sit in and not have his feet drag, easy to push, etc. I bought both the red & the lilac and am quite happy!

And, during my search for strollers I came across this pet stroller (also on overstock) and couldn't resist! It's also lightweight and easy to use and fun for Sami!!

Water Table Fun

Step 2 offers some fun, sturdy, outdoor toys for toddlers and kids. One of my kids favortite things in the summer is the water table (available at step2.com or many local toy stores.) You can put water in one side and sand in the other, we put water on both sides and just let them splash around for hours. Comes with the umbrella which really does come in handy during those hot, sunny summer days.
