First Ride in My Jogging Stroller

My jogging stroller's maiden voyage!

Now that Grandma and Grandpa are in town, we’re all motivated to be more active and get out and enjoy the sunshine.  All this week, it’s supposed to be in the 70’s.  Can you believe it?  70-degree weather in December!  So, Papa assembled my brand new jogging stroller — a generous gift from Lola Bing, Lolo Nelson, Lola Baby, Lola Vita, Lolo Ady, Lola Pet, Lolo Bino, Lolo Carling and Lola Malaya!

While our fancy B.O.B. stroller is somewhat challenging to steer when we’re just strolling along, it’s actually very easy to steer while going fast (ie: while rollerskating), according to Papa.  (See video below.)  Regardless of the speed, it’s a very smooth ride.  It has shocks!  Fancy!… We enjoyed a great day on the trail along the beach.

Tita Ging thinks I look bored, but I’m actually having the time of my life taking in all the sights!  This is my first time to sit so upright and face forward in a stroller!  I LOVE IT!!!  Who knows?  Mama might actually take up jogging.

    So cute! I think there might be a pin in the front wheel that you can move, so you can steer when you’re not in “straight-path-running” mode. Hope you’re having a wonderful December!

        we registered for a BOB rain guard which works really well on both the BOB and the GRACO car seat stroller! i recommend it! (sarah actually got it for us!)
