we got away for a little mini-vacation over the long fourth of july weekend to visit family in minnesota and it was f a n t a s t i c. sleeping in, pool lounging, reading, shopping, eating, swimming, board games, sparklers, barbeques, lots of sweet treats and more pool lounging. it was a wonderful little getaway and i'm already wishing i could go back.
the highlight of the trip for us was visiting the sweetest little baby shop and getting to "meet" our future stroller for the first time. all of my research proved very faithful because we loved it even more even person. wheeling it around the store was like a dream.
