Jogging...and Easter Pre-view

So, I have been looking for a double jogging stroller for awhile now, and though I have found some brands and styles I am just IN LOVE WITH, they are sadly way too expensive for my work from home budget.

BUT!! I did find this stroller that I am just in love with. However, I haven't been able to find one to look at in person and even though $200.00 has been a deal for a light yet sturdy double jogging stroller, it is still a week worth of work for me at Dakno before I can afford it.

So, I am wondering if anyone out there has any advice on what type of double jogging stroller they enjoyed? And what do you think of this one I am looking at?

I was blessed enough that a parent at my preschool gave me a single jogger as a present when I left to start staying home and I really loved getting back in shape with it. Little Dude also really enjoyed the running (well, honestly, it was more of a walk with a hop to it for a long long time-I really started running about the time I go pregnant again and had to stop...hahah!) So, anyways, the point of that was to say that I really enjoy running and want to do it as a way to loose the baby weight with this baby; however, I don't want to get stuck with a stroller that is two heavy or hard to push with two kids.

I have been thinking long and hard about it and I do have plenty of time to get one, since JR can't ride in the stroller until he is holding his head up very well any way (I think 6 weeks is recommended; however, I would probably wait until closer to 3 months to do more than a real light jog/quick walk with both the boys.)

So what do you guys think? Anyone with double jogger experiences to share? Please leave me a comment and let me know!

Also, I wanted to report we dyed eggs tonight with Little Dude and he had a BLAST!! I will put up pictures on Monday, as I am sure with all the family and church activities I won't have time to get on here tomorrow. I wish you guys could have seen him in action with the egg dying..he was just in heaven and having the GREATEST time.

Of all the fun Easters I have had; this, by far, has been the best. Our Little Dude loved the Easter Egg Hunt Friday (I will put more about that Monday too) and has been playing with the plastic eggs and his basket ever since. Tonight was wonderful with my in-laws and John over to share in the fun. Little Dude was all business with the eggs and smiled like crazy watching the colors dissolve in the vinegar and water. Be on the look out for tons of pictures Monday!

Oh my goodness; the greatest joy is just watching him experience new things! I hope you all have a wonderful, blessed Easter (if you don't celebrate, then I hope you got to enjoy a fun day off from work and great time with family). And, I hope that everyone just has a wonderful, WONDER-FILLED day like my Little Dude.

Happy Easter!

is there a freecycle group in your area? There are always strollers bouncing around on our group so its worth a shot! Good luck and hope the ultrasound goes well!

Hey Michelle,
I wanted to mention this the other day when I saw you but forgot!
Have you been to "play it again sports" to look for strollers?
I went past one the other day and they had jogging strollers outside. I did not specifically see any double ones, but it wouldn't hurt to check out!
