Buy Buy Baby...Hello stroller heaven!

Mother's Day weekend and we pulled out the shorts, sunblock and sunglasses. Hallelujah!

I am thrilled to say that my Mother's Day weekend (last year of being mama to one little munchkin!) started on Friday with The Husband having two days off...IN A ROW! Fellow Pastor's wives and wives of weekend working husbands, you know how amazing this is.

We celebrated by grabbing some doughnuts and hitting the streets for errands galore. Not the classiest way to spend a Friday morning but there are some days, you just can't avoid the "have-to's."

 A "have-to" that turned into a various awesome date night with J spending the night at Grandma and Grandpa's house was a trip out to Buy Buy Baby.

Folks, I'm pretty sure we found the motherload of baby gear. Buy Buy Baby was the Bed Bath and Beyond on steroids for parents. Particularly, it's the stroller heaven of baby land. They had an ENTIRE wall of strollers! Strollers that I had only read about! Uh-Mazing. Truly

I had been hunting for a particular double stroller. With 2 kids under the age of 3, I've been trying to find the perfect double that will fit our little guys. Oh and fit our Britax Companion car seat. I'd narrowed it down to three...

1. Baby Jogger's City Mini Double - 2012
2. Baby Jogger's City Mini GT Double - 2012
3. Bumbleride Indie Twin - 2012

Main problem with all three? Where oh where in the Bay Area can I take them for a test drive?!

Finally, in entered Buy Buy Baby. Not a quick drive to Pleasant Hill but 45 minutes to touch and feel instead of guesstimate was worth it.

After an hour of drooling and test driving and physically taking a stroller out to my car to see how it fits into a Ford Focus, The Husband and I had come up with our decision. Hands down...2012 Baby Jogger's City Mini GT Double.
Not only does it have adaptors for our Britax car seat, a boogie board for J, a cooler, snack trays and rain cover, it...is...easy. I can't tell you how excited I am to pull the trigger on bringing this bad boy home. Ah yes. It's the little things in life that make this mama smile.
