During the summer there are festivals, fairs and farmer’s markets that are great to visit together as a family. Sometimes though little legs just can’t keep up. Enter the perfect summer lightweight stroller – the umbrella stroller. Umbrella strollers aren’t fancy strollers with tons of storage. Rather, they are very light strollers that are perfect for maneuvering through crowds and they don’t cost very much either.
Kolcraft carries a number of umbrella strollers. Some are basic strollers perfect when all you need is a way to transport your tired child. Some of Kolcraft’s umbrellas strollers have cup holders, canopies and a little storage space. Some even connect to your i-Pod!
If you want to make your summer a little more hassle-free, try an umbrella stroller to help you spend more time enjoying all the fun summer has to offer.

You may remember when we met the family behind Wehmeier Portraits. We were so inspired by Elise and Rob who are living their passion for photography and capturing those special family moments that Kolcraft sent me (Michelle) and Wally Wonderbug to a pregnancy photo session.
I wasn’t sure what to expect. I can’t say I have been one of those moms who has felt oh so beautiful as a pregnant woman. I don’t exactly show off my baby bump – I’m mostly just trying to find an outfit that is comfortable more than fashionable. Being with the Wehmeiers helped me to see my pregnant body in a whole new light. It many ways it was a freeing experience of celebrating my pregnancy and all the changes my body has gone through for this little baby. The best part though was Rob teaching Wally Wonderbug the joys of photography. Wally had a lot of fun learning all about different camera angles and lighting from his expert and ever-so-patient teacher, Rob.
As the session came to an end I was so excited that I now have a legacy to pass down to my baby. There really is a difference between a do-it-yourself photo session and professional portraits that last a lifetime. I can’t wait to share how wonderful that experience was with my daughter when she is older. I can’t wait to show her that was her inside of me growing and developing. These photos are a great compliment to our ultrasound photos which capture her very first moments of life.
I realized that just as I wouldn’t skimp on my wedding photos with a DIY session, I’m glad I didn’t miss the opportunity to capture my pregnancy with a professional photographer. What made it even more fun was that Wally Wonderbug was able to share the moment with me.
If you are lucky enough to live in Chicago, check out Wehmeier Portraits. You will love the work they do and you will feel their joy at capturing your family moments. If you don’t live in Chicago, find a family friendly photographer and give your child the gift of his or her prenatal legacy.
We all know that as much as we love all the hope and promise that pregnancy brings, it’s not the most comfortable time for our bodies. Pregnancy pillows can alleviate some of that pain.
You know you need a pregnancy pillow, but would getting another item free with your pregnancy make you more apt to buy it? We would like to know!
Please let us know your thoughts in the comment section!
