This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Graco.

This past Wednesday I attended a Graco Stroller event and had the opportunity of meeting some great ladies!  Since my in laws were in town I left my little girl at home sleeping and took my 3 year old to play at the party.

Yeah, R looks pumped...well it was cold and windy so I was trying to keep him bundled.

Special thanks to Brittany from Naturally Estes for organizing and running the event!  This was my first time getting together with other bloggers so I was kind of nervous but she made me feel right at home.

Zoe's Kitchen provided some super delicious sandwiches and wraps.  Personally I was huge fan of the chicken salad (I'm actually very picky about chicken salad and I love theirs!) and the yummy and beautiful fruit salad.

I made a plate for R and I to share but I went back from seconds and thirds of the fruit salad because it was so deliciously fresh and juicy.

R was a even bigger fan of the cookies.  Big surprise...not really!  lol

Oh yeah, but the reason for the party was to talk about the new Graco FastAction Fold Click Connect Jogger.

Brittany did a demonstration on the stroller which I had to miss part of because R decided he HAD to go potty.

R prefered to run to the top of the big hill and attempt to roll down.

So do you want to know what I think about the new FastAction jogger?
  • Super easy fold up and the wheels click off, like really easier click off.  Some strollers have wheels that come off but you need a wrench and someone with a super strong grip, not this stroller the two back wheels pop off with the simply use of a easy to find button.
  • I love the phone holder and storage, this stroller has TONS of storage both for Mom near the handle, for baby in the tray, and more with a HUGE and I mean HUGE storage compartment under the seat.
  • I love the front wheel is able to lock.  I prefer to never lock mine but I know some folks like theirs locked so this has a easy flip of a click to lock it into place.
  • It has a nice sun cover but I wish it was more maneuverable, it doesn't come very low so if the sun is setting it's shining right in babies eyes
  • The handle is super soft but I wish it was able to change positions.  If you're tall, the handle position is perfect.
  • I love how straight up the seat will go.  It is a reclinable seat but my kids were never the type to want to lounge in strollers, they like to be up and looking around and this seat come to almost a 90 degree angle that my little B loved
  • I really like how easy it was to click her in.  The harness is different that any stroller I've seen but it was super easy to click.
  • I folded this stroller up and EASILY fit her into the back of a car.  I was so impressed at how well and EASY it was to fold it up with the handle and click the wheels off easy peasy.
