If you have more then one kid, like twins, or just younger ones, having a double stroller can come in handy. I love our double stroller, we got last fall, right before our youngest was born.

Trident “See What Unfolds Live”

Music, it’s a language on it’s own. In times of happiness, heartache, or sometimes both, it keeps me sane.
