road trip

Wednesday, September 05, 2012

We took our first family road trip this past weekend - JB needed to dangle his toes in the ocean!  And to all of the skeptics out there who said we needed a new car - here is living proof that you can still have a mini and a baby AND go on a family vacation!  That's right it all fit.... stroller, suitcase, bassinet, baby food gear, misc. baby gear, AND the baby!  (I'm a pretty awesome packer, I know!)

That's right, you don't need an SUV or a mini van when you become a mom - you can still keep your cool car.  (Well, until you have 2 babies, but I'm not ready to talk about that yet!)

In other news, JB is really, really great at vacationing - I think it is because he is a big fan of the lounging activity!

  1. How did I miss this post before? We have a new baby, the same stroller... and we once had a MINI, before we had to PCS to Dhaka... But since we're heading back to a world with paved roads and reasonable traffic laws, we're thinking of getting another, but upgrading to the Countryman. Good to know the mondo big stroller fits even in the R56. :)

  2. The countryman is on my want list. You should do it - and help me prove to all those SUV mamas that kiddos and minis do mix! :)
