Family Adventures with Joovy

Family Adventures with Joovy

Traveling with young kids or even going shopping can be tricky. As soon as we had our 3rd child, we knew we needed to figure out some creative ways to escape the house with 3 kids. I wasn’t eager to leave the house with a newborn and two toddlers, so for a few months I only did errands if my husband could watch at least one child. Slowly I got used to the idea and now it’s a lot easier to take all three kids with me but I’ve still experienced some near-impossible events of having to corral the kids through the parking lot or chase them down while holding my purse and a baby. I’ve found the most effective way to keep track of my two toddlers is to trap them in the stroller, or let my more responsible daughter walk and trap my 2-year-old and 1-year-old in the stroller. I absolutely love our Joovy Caboose Ultralight. It has everything; seats, platforms, secure restraints, pockets, pouches, storage areas, and it easily folds up to fit in the trunk of my Civic. It feels just as streamlined as a regular stroller except that it fits two kids! I’m excited to share why I love this stroller, a basic essential for any family who enjoys getting out with young kids!
