After this incident a little while back I was thinking the kids really haven't had much sensory play since we have spent so much time inside. (We limit baths during the winter because of their crazy dry skin.) The snow and ice was still packed on top of the sandboxes at the playgrounds so I brought out a tub of rice and let the kids play, pour and enjoy. They were engrossed for quite a while, but I had to put an end to the fun once Oliver started tossing the rice around. Bonus points: they also enjoyed helping me vacuum and sweep up the mess!

We finally traded in our old Maclaren for this sweet ride:
|Britax B-Ready with 2nd seat!
|They are quite pleased with it as well.
I've been eyeing this stroller for a few months. After researching and reading tons of reviews I decided this is the double stroller that would best suit our city traveling needs. It just came to the market last summer, so it was impossible to find a used one.
But, Brian's sister found us an amazing deal. Currently Britax has a promotion going on where you can get the 2nd seat free. And then we bought ours at Buy Buy Baby which accepts Bed Bath & Beyond coupons (check fine print for exclusions). So, we got this sweet ride (normally $650) for a sweet deal ($400).
As the novelty wears off Isabella will be back scooting all over the city and Simon will be strolling.
