During the summer, I try to spend as much time as possible outside with my two boys. ( ages 4 and 2). They are just happier when they’re outside. We love to hike, play at the park, visit our local arboretum, go on bike rides, go on walks and have picnics.
I don’t know what it is, but eating outside is just so special to both of them. ( I love it when they eat outside too! This means that they’re NOT making a mess in my kitchen!)
The folks at Shopko sent me their awesome J is for Jeep Brand All-Terrain Jogging Stroller. I was super excited. I have never invested much in my other strollers, and this stroller rode so much smoother than any other stroller I have ever used. It has made our afternoon walks much more enjoyable, plus our outdoor picnics at the park as well.
My little guy loves this stroller too. He has been really excited about strolling in it, and has gone out of his way to sit in it when we go outside to play. ThisJ is for Jeep Brand All-Terrain Jogging Stroller from Shopko has cup holders and a very large snack tray. This large snack tray made it easier for my little guy to participate in our picnic at the park.
Here are some more summer tips on how to use this Jogging stroller this summer!
- Picnic in the park: Sometimes the simpler things in life are those we often overlook. What beats the simplicity of a picnic at the park, crawling through the freshly cut grass and pushing a youngster on the swing? Enjoy your local community by planning a picnic in the park. Prepare ahead of time and pack meals and activities in easy-to-carry containers. Shopko now offers an easy-to-use Summer Infant Pop ‘n Sit Portable Booster that makes picnic feedings a breeze.
- Summer strolls: What better way to spend time with the family than enjoying the cool, beautiful summer mornings or evenings on a walk or run? Use Shopko’s new J is for Jeep Brand All-Terrain Jogging Stroller that makes pushing a stroller easy no matter the terrain.
- Love your library: The summer is a great time to take advantage of the great programs your community offers. Many libraries offer reading groups for all ages throughout the summer months – even mommy and me type programs for the littlest ones. Use your library card to stock up on books to read to your infant during those rainy summer days that prevent you from being out and about with your child. If your baby is teething, consider Shopko’s new Appeteethers, a teething aid available in an assortment of fun food shapes that will keep infants calm during story time.
- Wade in the water: There is no better way to cool down than to visit a local pool or beach. Plan weekly trips to a watery destination to keep you and your children cool while having fun with others. Avoid pesky messes on-the-go during meal time by packing a Bumkins Pocket Bib now available at Shopko.
