::::

So, the one thing we really needed for this second baby was a double stroller... we only have one car and it is really hot here so wearing one kid isn't always my cup of tea but I had no idea how we were going to afford said double stroller. Well... my wonderful MIL bought us a Quatro Tour Duo which is almost a 300 dollar stroller (She is awesome obviously) and it came in the mail today and is SO pretty!!! Maybe now that the baby has a plush new ride he will come out??

Yeah, I did a ton of research before telling her what one we wanted... and I test drove it in Babies R Us with my best friends 4 year old in the front and DS who was 6 months at the time in the back and it still drove super easy!! I was so excited I put it together myself before DH got home

I'm glad I liked the graco because our infant carseat is a Graco. We rarely attach the seat to the stroller but it is nice to have the option!! The combis are really nice too

Got mine over the weekend, too, and took the boys for a test drive. Pushed over 75 pounds up and down hill and still no baby!! Oh, well, it is a sweet stroller. It will be great exercise to sling the baby AND push the boys..!

i have the peg perego aria twin and TOTALLY love it! i got it in 2003, tho, so i don't know if things have been redesigned, but at the time, i chose it over the Combi because the peg was *slightly* more narrow and made to the width of a wheelchair and the Combi was not, so getting the Combi in and out of stores was a real PITA! just a thought....

I have the single PP Aria and I love it and was considering the double, but I guess I wanted something different.
