Goin' to see Great-Grandpa!!

We just received an invitation to my Grandfather's 80th birthday party. This is very exciting for me because my family get togethers are very few and far between. Plus, we make the best of every moment. Unfortunately, Hubby is not able to come with us due to work. :( Thus, this leaves me to travel with our daughter all alone. I gave a brief, very brief, thought about traveling with my parents but that will be a long drive (about 14 hours one way). I don't think the little girl can handle it that long. So, thankfully with hubby's travel points, we were able to get flights and only have to pay $20 (for taxes)! I love travel points!!

The next concern was how was I going to push a stroller, carry her car seat, diaper bag, and any other misc accessories? The internet is a great research tool. Initially I found that car seat that converts with a "pop" of a handle, but that was about $230. Just a tad out of my price range. In looking at reviews for that stroller, someone mentioned the gogo Kidz Travelmate. How cool is that?! They were out of stock but I went to one of their online retailers and found it in stock and can ship in 1 to 2 days. The great thing is that we will have this for our trip to Disney too. Keep your fingers crossed for it to work like we hope it does! :)
