pictures 'n stuff

Last weekend I picked up this sweet jogger stroller at a garage sale for $60! It'll be perfect for strolls in the neighborhood - in any weather. I still want a "regular" stroller for trips and for shopping etc... I am considering a few different ones but I seem to keep coming back to the MacLaren. Anyone have the Maclaren and have an opinion on it?

One of my mother's day's gifts was this dragon garden ornament. We have affectionately nicknamed him Moo-shoo (Like the dragon in Mulan).

I just thought that this was a great spring picture of Francis. :)

Great pic of Francis!

The jogger stroller looks great... sweet deal! I'm partial to the ones, with the front wheel on a swivel... I'd have to be honest, I'd definitely be using it more in shops than I would jogging!!!

I bought that exact same stroller in fantastic condition at a garage sale for $20! I used it for 2.5 years and put no less than a thousand miles on it. I wore it out and had to get a new one. =0(
I was emotionally attached to that stroller...go figure.

I have the Maclaren Techno stroller and can not say enough great things about it. I've had about 15 strollers b4 I found the Maclaren and feel sorry for people who havn't yet discovered it yet. Alison feels the same way about her Maclaren. They stroll with such great ease and they are small enough in the trunk and can fit in the store aisles easy....but really, it's all about the stearing for me. Go for it, you won't be sorry!

Now bring on the referrals!!!
