I was provided with the stroller mentioned in this post, at no cost, to feature in this blog post. All opinions are my own.
Last week I took my two kiddos out for a fun day with Mommy. Although we often go out together, this trip was extra special to me (and I hope them), because it could very well be our last day trip out just the 3 of us….at least for a while. You see, I am writing this blog post at 39.5 weeks pregnant. We will become a family of 5 any day now.
When we want to head out for a day of fun, we often hit the city of Hagerstown, Maryland, which is about a 20 minute drive from our home. This is the city where I was born and there are so many fun things to do! Before leaving, I packed a diaper bag with drinks and snacks, grabbed our new Summer Infant 3D lite Convenience Stroller, then we were on our way.
Our first stop for the day was the Hagerstown Premium Outlets. I had some Carters Cash to spend and well, as a mom, you know how important it is not to let that go to waste! We stopped at a few other favorite stores, like Gymboree and Gap Kids looking for great deals on clothes for the kiddos. They pack the clothing racks in so tight that I always make it a point to take a small, easy to maneuver stroller when I go there.
The morning started out a little breezy and chilly (it can be like that early in June) so the kids stayed warm with light blankets. I was glad to have the extra basket space on the 3D lite to store them once it started to get warm. No trip to the outlets is complete without stopping for a soft pretzel! We split 2 between the three of us (and yes, they were delicious!).
All shopped out, our next stop was the playground. My kids LOVE playing outside, especially after being cooped up inside after an extremely cold and snowy winter. We spent a long time on the swings, slides, and other playground equipment.
The Hagerstown City Park has this beautiful lake with a walking trail that wraps all the way around it. For just a few dollars you can purchase a big bag of duck/fish food, so of course, we always do. The kids love animals in general, and they feel special being able to feed them. Keeping my son in the stroller means he can feed the ducks without my having to worry he will fall in!
Our next stop was lunch so we headed to CiCi’s Pizza for a cheap meal the kids love. Then, to finish off the day, I treated them to gelatis from Rita’s Italian Ice. (Okay, I was craving it as well so it wasn’t entirely for their benefit.) Maggie was especially excited over the butterfly that landed on her arm while she was eating.
We had such a great day out, just the 3 of us. It was a special time that I’ll always remember and cherish.
As mentioned above, for our day out we took the Summer Infant 3D lite Convenience Stroller. I’ve got the chance for you to win 1 of 2 of these awesome strollers, but first, let me briefly tell you about it.
The Summer Infant 3D lite Convenience Stroller is a light, portable umbrella stroller with all the features you love in your full size stroller without the extra bulk and weight. Included with this stroller are:
- cup holder
- 5 point safety harness
- large, expandable umbrella top
- multi-position seat recline, including one that is nearly a 180 degree angle
- lockable front wheels, brakes on rear wheels
- soft foam handles
- large storage basket underneath
- carry strap
- rear storage pocket
I love having this stroller for a day out with my kids and my son loved it too! The basket was the perfect size for storing the kids’ essentials, while the rear storage pocket held my keys, cellphone, sunglasses, and wallet. The large umbrella shade kept the sun off of my son, and it was nice to know that if he fell asleep (he didn’t this time) that I could recline his seat for him…..all with a stroller that weights just 12 pounds and only costs $79.99!
