With summer upon us one of my favourite things to do with my family is to play tourist in my own city. A tool that helps me do that, with my six kids with ease is my new Bugaboo Bee⁵– a customizable, compact stroller, perfect for urban city strolls.

I love to explore my local neighbourhood on foot with my kids. There are so many local parks, shops, museums and historic landmarks I have never explored- and the summer, with my kids, is the perfect time to do it.

With the variety of ages I've got in my crazy little crew, a comfort wheeled board is the way to do it. I love how easy it is on these short trips for my little kids to hop on and hop off with ease [big time bonus that the new integrated attachment points on the stroller make it easy to click on Bugaboo accessories like the cup holder and this comfort wheeled board without adaptors]. And while we are on it, look at these wheels- the caps are just one of the changeable options in 700 possible design combinations on the stroller [changeable options include the handlebar grips, canopy and padded seat].

Aimless time with my kids is pretty much the best. I love being able to take impromptu detours, spend time in front of sweet historic houses like this one, and dream up what my neighbourhood may have looked like a hundred years ago. I love to dream.

These kinds of strolls playing tourist in my own neighbourhood allow me to have aimless conversation with my kids, be a little less in my head thinking about work / household tasks / the regular lists that run through a mom's head, and be more present with the people I love most. 

My stroller helps to make these kinds of experiences easier and I'm grateful to Bugaboo for partnering with me on this post. To learn how you can design your own Bugaboo Bee⁵ click here. Happy summer!!!
