A few weeks ago we went on a short family holiday with our friends to Taupo, New Zealand. As you all know, when you travel with kids, you tend to take A LOT of stuff with you. It seems to be that the smaller the child is, the bigger their bag!

This is not a typo - not this time. But the first time it was... or perhaps Apple had nailed the auto correction on the iPhone this time and had it right?
Rewinding a little here, we had signed up for our local (correctly spelt) antenatal classes. I know it seems that there is a recurring theme in my blogs of me having no idea of what I'm doing, and I'm sure I still don't, but I promise our twins will be quite safe - Sarah knows what she is doing.
Arriving at the airport at 6:30 in the morning is tough... doing it with two kids in tow is madness! Boy, were we glad that we had a buggy to keep two year old Lexie in check!
Cleverly engineered for function and durability, all of our Mountain Buggies are designed to enable parents to live a life without limit. With well considered designed from frames to fabrics ensure simplicity from the road to the washing tub. As parents ourselves, we are no strangers to the thrills and spills that parenthood brings. We get many queries from mums, dads, grandparents and caregivers alike. From 'how do I clean my fabric? How do I stop my brake from clicking? How do I clean my wheels? We'd like to share with you some tips and tricks based on some of the top 3 questions we get around care and maintenance.
I know that shopping and showers isn't your normal mix - unless you are doing up your bathroom, and let's face it, if you have a baby on the way, that is the last thing on your mind! But this mix is one of the most important for a parent to be.
Returning to Melbourne from New Zealand, it was back to having no family around and Mark often away for five days at a time for work. This meant essentially leaving Bruno and I to wing it solo. While gaining a huge appreciation for single parents out there, I also started to fully appreciate the freedom and ability to train that the terrain gave me. Cue: ultra-marathon no longer at the back of our minds but eyes now lingering over the entry button.
Our little mascot (Bruno) arrived by speed train late October 2013. Having been very lucky with a smooth and natural delivery, it was not long before I was out and about with him in my terrain .
For me, buying a buggy was like buying a car or a bike: I needed one that suited my needs of living an active outdoor-lifestyle. For example, if you're a keen skier you generally need a car that has 4WD; if you're a mountain biker you need a mountain bike vs. if you're a triathlete you generally need a time trial bike (okay, let's be honest, there's a few needs there that should be replaced with wants, but you get the idea).
