Spring Break is here and so is my cousin Nikita from Toronto, Canada. This is her first trip to California so the girls and I thought we would take her to one of our favourite places, Santa Monica. A city known for the famous Santa Monica Pier, eclectic energy, shopping, restaurants, and more shopping.

So with the holiday booked, I have already started to think about what I need to take with me and how I am going to strategically pack it into the car. The Mountain Buggy terrain is quite a bit bigger than my previous pushchairs, so I am fearful that something may have to stay behind. My mind starts to reel will it be the kids bucket and spades and other essential toys, or am I going to have to forfeit some of my clothes!
We came across this post on a top influential parenting forum in Australia, by a mum who was making an important purchasing decision on what the best double buggy was for her and her kids. We got in contact with her and got her permission to post here, as it gives valuable insight into the all important decisions to make when purchasing a new double buggy! Thanks Amelia, and welcome to the wonderful world of Mountain Buggy!
Well, I guess I didn't want to linger over it... so we have made a purchase: The Mountain Buggy duet! Haven't taken it out yet, but this was my shopping experience (for those looking for the same sort of thing).
My "due date" or "guess date" as we say in Hypnobabies (the childbirth education program that I teach and that I used to prepare for Baby Jaguar's birth), was March 27, but my baby had other plans. She came at 35 weeks on Mardi Gras, in fact! I say that she didn't want to miss the parties: Mardi Gras, her sister's birthday and St. Patrick's Day.
Today I took delivery of my new Mountain Buggy terrain and I am just so excited! I feel like a child who has woken up on their birthday morning with a huge sense of anticipation at the big brown box in the middle of the room and an uncontrollable desire to lose control and simply rip open the box without a care in the world!

When our second daughter was almost upon us we faced the dilemma of having 2 kids armed with just one buggy. Up until Sofia was born, we had a Mountain Buggy swift to cart around our oldest daughter Ariana, and while it was awesome and totally suited us in every way, we needed to accommodate another passenger who was soon to arrive.
We heard from today's guest blogger Kristina, when she sent through a gorgeous email to our team, just to say thanks for designing a great stroller!
"I purchased a Mountain Buggy Urban Double stroller back in 2004 with the birth of our second child. Since then, we've had 3 more kids, now aged: 8, 7, 5, 3, and 9 mths. I'm still on the original stroller (replaced the seats a year ago, but not out of necessity, I just wanted to update it a bit with a new color). We live on a farm and I use that stroller more than our ATV and tractor combined. If it doesn't have 2 kids in it, or 3 or 4 (arranged very carefully), it has a kid and 3 50lb bags of horse feed, or a kid and 6 buckets of tools, duct tape, twine (farm necessities) where I walk around the property fixing fences and what not. We recently had a crew come clear some pine trees off our property and I wanted to walk around and look at what they had done. I walked 60 acres, going over pine trees 6-8 inches in diameter, sticks, twigs, dirt mounds, mud, you name it! What's in the woods, I went over it with the stroller - not a flat tire... nothing! I can't tell you how much I love that stroller. There are only a few things I would buy if I had to do it all over again, knowing now what I know after 5 kids, what I would start over again with one, and that stoller is one of them... along with diapers! So, thank you so much for producing such a great stroller. And if you ever need one tested for durability, just send it my way!" :-)
We loved Kristina's story - Along with kids and buggy in two, Kristina really did live life without limit! So we contacted her and asked her to be our guest blogger, introducing us into her world!
