Our Summer Journey With Safety 1st

I am a compensated brand ambassador for Safety 1st, all opinions are our own.
our summer journeyWe are a theme park family and what I mean by that is that we spend a lot of time at our favorite theme parks here in southern California. There’s so many exciting things to do and this summer has been full of adventure!

We are also a family who is often on the go, we spend a lot of time in the car and traveling together. Especially in the summer months and as a parent I always want to be sure my children are safe and happy. That’s why we have used Safety 1st products with our children.

From summer road trips to through the Grand Canyon to exploring thousand year old ruins we started this summer with a road trip adventure to see and do it all!

I know what parents need when it comes to gear for their families because I’ve spent time perfecting taking trips with our girls. A strong stroller when traveling a must especially if you’re going to be hitting a theme park this summer. Plenty of snacks and water is a must so I like having a stroller that can keep up with the needs of our family.

The Stand onBoard® Double Stroller from Safety 1st is my go to stroller, it’s always in the back of our SUV and is a must for our family.

This tandem stroller also includes convenience features such as parent and child cup holders and an extra-large basket to make the walk more enjoyable for the whole family.

I really like the hieghit of the seat in the back. It’s comfortable and the perfect size for my older kiddos when they need a little break.

There’s also plenty of cup holders that don’t get in the way and a large basket to store everything you will need for a busy day with your family.

    Do they make a stroller for 4 that you cam still lift? My daughter has twin 19 mo, a 3 y/o and an almost 5 y/o. It is impossible to go anywhere with everyone.

  2. Mommy2jam on August 14, 2014 at 3:04 am

    I need a double stroller …. I needed a double stroller at one point. I wish I knew about this then. Thanks for sharing

  3. Krystal's Kitsch on August 11, 2014 at 10:02 am

    That stroller looks SUPEr durable. Always a plus when on the go!

  4. Camesha on August 10, 2014 at 10:00 pm

    We need a double stroller! This one sounds awesome. I thought we wouldn’t need one for my son at his age but when we’re out at the zoo or theme parks it would so come in handy!

  5. Rachael on August 10, 2014 at 10:27 am

    That’s a nice stroller. I’ll keep it in mind if my daughter gives me any more grandchildren.

  6. Brett on August 9, 2014 at 7:40 pm

    Looks like you had a great time! I love the little minion.

  7. Marina @ Mommy Snippets on August 9, 2014 at 6:12 pm

    That looks really fun! Awesome tips.

  8. Janell Poulette on August 9, 2014 at 5:47 pm

    That is a very cool stroller. We have been to baseball games, the beach and Downtown Disney!

  9. Ann Bacciaglia on August 9, 2014 at 4:49 pm

    I went to California this summer and loved it. I will definitely return very soon,

  10. Lauren on August 9, 2014 at 12:54 pm

    That is a great stroller. We needed that at Disneyland!

  11. Christie on August 9, 2014 at 11:04 am

    I’ve been thinking about getting a combo stroller like this for my 2 littles. Nice features!

  12. Rosey on August 9, 2014 at 7:04 am

    I love that ride-on feature for the stroller you have. And you’re right, a stroller, snacks, and plenty of water are a must when you’re out and about with the kiddos. It does look like you’re having a great summer!

  13. Shell on August 9, 2014 at 6:09 am

    You really have traveled all over! This summer, we’ve been to NYC, Outer Banks, and we’re heading to Orlando.

  14. Carly from The Puzzled Palate on August 8, 2014 at 10:26 pm

    Looks like your family had a great vacation. This summer we made it to the beach and to the mountains:)

  15. Felicia on August 8, 2014 at 8:52 pm

    It looks like you guys have had an amazing time! The stroller would definitely come in handy, especially in theme parks. I love that it fits both girls comfortably.

  16. Chrysa on August 8, 2014 at 8:13 pm

    You have had some super fun trips! I have mostly traveled by myself this summer, but we did take a 4 day weekend to go to a nearby resort area this past weekend.

  17. Jennifer on August 8, 2014 at 7:25 pm

    We visit theme parks during the summer too. It looks like you guys have had a very full and exciting summer!

  18. Debbie Denny on August 8, 2014 at 6:06 pm

    Love that stroller. Looks like a great trip for you all.

  19. Veronica on August 8, 2014 at 5:02 pm

    Greta looking stroller. They are so much better than when my kids were little

  20. April @ Everyday Fitness and Nutrition on August 8, 2014 at 4:14 pm

    That’s a super fancy stroller! Instead of a summer vacation, we decided to take a cruise in December. I am counting down the days!

  21. Dawn on August 8, 2014 at 3:37 pm

    These are great baby products. The look very well made and durable. Those were my two major criteria when my son was a baby.

  22. Shop with Me Mama (Kim) on August 8, 2014 at 3:00 pm

    OH! Looks like fun! And that stroller, looks amazing! Look at all the great features!

  23. Melinda on August 8, 2014 at 2:39 pm

    i love when a stroller system works well. there are so many useless kid products out there but this looks amazing

  24. Mitch on August 8, 2014 at 1:18 pm

    K., you have too much fun! I love these pictures! And what a great stroller system, safety first always!

  25. Amanda on August 8, 2014 at 12:05 pm

    Looks like a great stroller for toddlers and preschoolers!

  26. Debi on August 8, 2014 at 11:44 am

    Double strollers are so convenient for moms. It is so great that there is an easy alternative to getting around with older and younger children both!

  27. Liz Mays on August 8, 2014 at 11:15 am

    You’ve been picking some fab places to go. You’re really plugged into all kinds of great attractions. I’m a wee bit jealous.

  28. Janel (A Mom's Take) on August 8, 2014 at 10:45 am

    You have had a great summer. I grew up in CA and all those places you went are places I would visit as a child. Can’t wait to take my family one day. We haven’t gone too far this summer. But we did explore some new parts of Louisiana I haven’t been before.

  29. Everyday Living with Chrys on August 8, 2014 at 10:35 am

    Looks like great fun. That stroller is pretty cool. I love that their is a place to stand in case someone gets tired and just doesn’t want to walk. Love the cup holders too!

  30. Betsy Mitchell on August 8, 2014 at 8:53 am

    Looks like yall have had a busy and fun summer time! I love going to theme parks too – just wish we had more in my area.

  31. Terry on August 8, 2014 at 8:06 am

    You seem to have it all down pat! Looks like the kids are absolutely enjoying the fun summer thanks to your great knowledege of what kids need.

  32. Jenn @TheRebelChick on August 8, 2014 at 7:49 am

    Oh my goodness, you guys had an awesome summer! I’ve always wanted to see the Grand Canyon. 🙂 That looks like a great stroller, I’m trying to pick one out for my sister’s baby shower, thanks for the info!

  33. Jeanine @ sixtimemommy.com on August 8, 2014 at 6:08 am

    What a fun looking summer! The Grand Canyon looks amazing every time I see photos. Hoping one day to get there myself!

  34. Robin (Masshole Mommy) on August 8, 2014 at 5:06 am

    I went to the Grand Canyon for a day while I was on my honeymoon. I would love to take my kids someday.

  35. Virginia @thatbaldchick on August 7, 2014 at 11:28 pm

    What a fun summer. Looks like Safety 1st had you covered all the way through!
