Our Travel System

Last night we put together our travel system. I was just so sick of looking at that box for nearly two months. As mentioned, I went with the Graco Alano FlipIt system in the Circa pattern.

I know the handle looks a little weird, but it can actually move to any position you want, so right now it's up high so it doesn't take up quite as much space. There is also a detachable cup holder that I've just got stored in the basket underneath for now.

Obviously we haven't used it yet, but I like it so far! I think the Circa pattern is just beautiful and the styling of the stroller is very sleek and modern (I find many travel system strollers to be really bulky). I wheeled it around our condo a bit and it seems to move very smoothly, and the breaks work well which is important. Oh, and just to be clear the system does come with a car seat base, I just didn't photograph it.

The car seat didn't require any assembly, and it took us about a half hour to get the stroller put together. We did need to use a hammer for attaching the wheels, so keep that in mind if you go with this system. The directions could have been a bit clearer as well, but we figured it out. And this afternoon I put the car seat and base in my car to make sure it fit. Thankfully it does! I wasn't too worried since I have an SUV, but you never know.

And hopefully my dad is having a garage sale in the next couple weeks so I can get rid of the desk and bookshelf in my craft room and begin setting up the nursery!
