We returned from our trip to Missouri on Sunday and I’m thankful for the time we spent there.

I had one goal for the trip: take Joslyn on a stroller ride.

We went on almost one almost every day, mission accomplished!

This trip made me excited for spring to arrive in South Dakota.

On a few days, Joslyn didn’t even need a coat, hat, blanket, extra blanket, and car seat cover!

Can you imagine how much easier it was for us to go places?

Also, it was nice to be in the warm houses of my family and friends. My soul (and feet) were warmed by this trip.

Joslyn got to see both of her great-grandmas on this trip! Isn’t that kind of amazing?

Plus, she has three great-grandpas.

What a lucky kid!

Need a stroller? So far, I’d recommend ours.

(Note: Amazon has an affiliate program where I can receive a small credit for recommending products. If you’re in the market for a stroller, I’d suggest the one we purchased.)

I know that strollers & carseats can be purchased together at a savings, but I had several friends tell me to skip that savings and go for a stroller that’s got bigger wheels and purchase the carseat individually.

For whatever reason, most people I talked to started with the bundle, then bought a jogging stroller/trike with bigger wheels and abandoned their previous 4-wheeled, came-with-the-carseat stroller. I suppose it’s not really a savings if you don’t use it, right?

Here are a few of the things I like about it:

  • If you purchase a Graco “Classic Connect” car seat, it’s compatible with the stroller and clicks right in.
  • If you live on a gravel road, the bigger tires are helpful.
  • If you live in a windy place, the sun cover rotates all the way forward to block the baby from the wind.
  • If you don’t want to spend $300 – $500, but want a jogging stroller…this seems to be a good lower-cost option.
  • If you want a stroller that is easy to drive and turn, this one is very “nimble”.

Of course, I can’t speak to the longevity of this stroller yet…but so far on our first few outings I’ve been tickled pink! Love It!

Here’s the link to purchase the stroller from Amazon.

    So much fun to ‘visit’ you via your written stories Sierra! Thank you for sharing!
    Joslyn is SO cute. I worked charge in OB Nursery at Avera in Sioux Falls while Rog attended Augustana after we were married. Little ones such as Joslyn were our favorite among the staff. Know why?? Plentiful hair is absent and we loved our little ones with ‘peach fuzz’!! 😉

Hey, I’m Sierra Shea! I am so glad you are here. 

Where do I start with writing to introduce this blog? At the beginning, I suppose: I’ve been writing on various platforms online since 2013. I started blogging shortly after moving to South Dakota.

I am a mother and a maker at heart. I’m so grateful to be married to John and mother of three: Joslyn, J.D. and Jesse.

I am a self-taught decorator and designer. I am a brand new shepherdess and a Spiritual Director.

I love living in South Dakota, even though the winters & the wind can be a near-daily struggle.

Blogging is a grounding force in my life and it helps get me out of my head, unstuck and moving in the directions I always hoped I’d be going!
