Keeping this little boy entertained and not too hot in the sun has been an adventure. I am always racking my brain trying to figure out places we can go that we can walk outside in between places, but still go inside every little bit so we don’t get too hot in this hot Utah summer weather we have been having. We generally end up at a mall or shopping center, because mama loves to find a good deal, King can walk when we are outside to get his wiggles out, and our CYBEX Balios Stroller holds everything that we need in the under basket while we are shopping. Win right?
King loves to find things while we are on our adventures through the day. This kid is going to be an I Spy champ one day. He also loves to hide or throw things and then look at me with his arms up like above “where did it go?”. This is happens all day everyday and keeps me on my toes while trying to catch what he is throwing and laughing at his “where did it go?” with his little giggles.
I love finding places that are part outside so we can sit down and have a little snack together while on our adventures. King loves to be in the stroller, but he loves to explore on his own even more. This kid is always exploring, he is so curious right now.
I love that our CYBEX Balios Stroller is so smooth to maneuver. It can easily navigate through tight spaces and I love that it folds up small so it doesn’t take up all my trunk space. That was a huge thing for me when looking for a stroller. It is so simple to set up, and collapse down. I also love that the seat is removable so if your little one is tiny you can put on a bassinet, or attach the Aton Q Infant Car Seat quickly. The stroller seat also reclines, which is perfect for when we have a full day out and King gets tired. Even though he won’t nap in the stroller, he does like to lay back every now and then.
Giggles and playing make up most of our adventures and that is what I love the most about them. I have found that I am a helicopter mama and always have to make sure he is clean, not touching things, safe, and everything in between. This leaves me overwhelmed and stressed out most of the time. I have had to learn to let go a little bit, let him be little, and enjoy the moment. Ever since I try to be conscious of letting him be little our days are so much more fun, so many more memories, and happier all around.
At the end of our adventures, we load up in our Aton Q Infant Car Seat and head home for mom a big Diet Coke and King a good long nap. Where is your favorite place to adventure in the hot summer?
You can snag both the stroller and carseat at BuyBuyBaby.
