This time around there would be no shopping. There would be no walks around town to see the sights. Unfortunately, we were without a stroller. Ugh! This happens whenever we take Jeff's car out of town. Harper rides in my car 99% of the time, and fittingly, one stroller permanently resides in the Expedition. I am so used to having a stroller in my car at all times that I don't think to pack one when we take Jeff's car. No matter how strong you are, there is only so long you can carry a baby around in a car seat. It is cumbersome, and there is no easy way to carry it off.
Harper and I ended up spending our day in Austin searching for a lightweight stroller. I wasn't particularly in love with anything we saw at Babies R Us. I thought about Target, but really, I'm over that place. Then, I remembered the stroller Jeff and I saw at the Co-op last summer. We wanted it then, but we knew it would be awhile before she would be able to ride around in it. This would be our opportunity! I knew Jeff would love it because it screams "UT," and I would be happy to have a small stroller to keep in his trunk. I didn't end up using it yesterday after all, but we gave it a whirl around the neighborhood this morning to try it out. It is going to come in handy!
