Our home is minutes from the mouth of the canyon and we’ve always loved going up there during the summers to play in the beautiful mountains we have here in Utah. When Dash was a puppy we would take him on walks around the trails and let him chase the ducks in the water and now it’s his favorite place to go! There’s a certain spot on the drive up where Dash figures out where we’re going, from that moment on he can hardly contain his excitement. It’s so peaceful up there and the best part is there’s no service anywhere so it’s become the perfect escape for Drew and I to take our little family to unplug and spend time with each other.
On Saturday we made PB&J’s, and loaded up Isla and Dasher boy to spend a sunny afternoon in the fresh mountain air. Since I’m pregnant my daily exercise consists of walking (not very exciting, I know). We walked on the trail for about a mile before I got too tired and had to sit down. After our little ‘workout’ we sat by the lake and watched Dash chase his tennis balls into the water. Since becoming a mom, trying to find time to go to the gym is almost impossible now so the only workout I get these days are when it involves Isla and Dash. I’m grateful for days like last Saturday that I could get out of the house and get some walking in. I take my O2 jogging stroller, when we go on walks/jogs up the canyon and Drew uses it almost every day after work. He’s actually been training for a half marathon that’s this Saturday! A few times a week after work he takes Isla in the O2 jogging stroller and Dash runs along side. Every single time Drew gets back from his run, Isla is sound asleep! It’s his favorite way to put her down for a nap these days and it totally works!
One thing I wanted to point out about the stroller that makes it my favorite is that the seat can either face towards you or away from you. Sometimes Isla wants to be able to see me or Drew and she’ll cry until we flip it around so she can see us. It makes it fun that we can talk to her while we’re on our walks without having to walk around to the front or get her out.
