We are headed out of town for a road trip back to one of our favorite little towns in California this weekend, Murphy’s. This time we are going for a family reunion on my husbands father’s side of the family. I’m looking forward to meeting people I’ve never meet and introducing them to our 2 daughters.
While preparing for our road trip I’ve been dreading the drive because our almost five year old, Piper, complains about her car seat being uncomfortable literally every time she is in it. Driving long distances with toddlers is already difficult enough. Thankfully we were able to get a new Graco car seat to eliminate most of that whining just in time for our trip!
Piper is still pretty tiny, she’s in the 10th percent in both hight and weight, barely weighing 30 pounds. Her two year old sister is quickly catching up! I kept Piper rear facing until she was 3.5 and have been concerned for her safety if we were to get into an accident, since she’s such a little peanut. Graco car seats are rigorously tested to exceed US FMVSS safety standards, helping make every protective parent more comfortable driving around their most precious passengers.
The line of Graco products is extensive with products for children from infancy to youth. The seat we chose will work for Piper until she is 8 years old (in California kids have to be in a car seat until 8 years old by law), and maybe longer if she keeps growing at her current rate.
We had ours delivered with the free 2 day shipping saving me a trip out of town, and with a job, 2 kids and ladedade… any extra time is very helpful in my life!
Now I’m looking forward to the drive to Murphy’s and can’t wait to turn the music up and sing our hearts out!
