I wrote that Father’s Day post Friday night while waiting for Joe to get home from work so that we could take off for the weekend. We had a great trip, but I am exhausted after traveling 12 hours in two days. I’ll have to write a post later this week to show y’all what we did for Joe for Father’s Day – it was the perfect gift.
While out of town this weekend, we stopped by Babies R Us to check out strollers. Right now we have the Graco stroller that comes in a travel system with the SnugRide carseat. It worked great with the infant carseat, but long ago we moved on from that…now I want something different! Something light, with smooth rolling so that I can push it with one hand, easy to fold and store, and something with REAL tires. I fear this does not exist.
For real tires, it seems that we are locked into a jogging stroller. That is fine, except that they tend to be bulky, heavy, and not the easiest to fold. Not only that, but to make it easier to turn, I’d like one with a swiveling front wheel, which is not on all jogging strollers. Needless to say, I didn’t find anything that was exactly what I want.
If I am willing to forgo the nice tires, it seems that my best option is an umbrella stroller – at least it would be super compact, super light, and cheap enough to make up for the fact that it’s not perfect.
Did I mention that I don’t want to spend a fortune? Any input?
