Second task as a Maxi Cosi Reporter – Exploring hidden treasures

When the second task as a Maxi Cosi Reporter dropped into my inbox this week I had a bit of a panic.  The task that had been set was to head out into our town or city to explore hidden treasures.  I racked my brain as to where we could go and came up with the following places to investigate…

On Friday we packed the Loola full of picnic goodies, a picnic blanket, a ball and a frisbee and headed out on foot into our village.  Since moving here over a year ago we have tended to stick to the same places and haven’t really had the time to explore it all.  We had a really long walk around and although we didn’t uncover any hidden treasures we certainly found lots of roads and houses we didn’t know about and saw some horses along the way!

I was really impressed how much we could fit on and underneath the Loola without it feeling unsteady.  Even when I took Little Miss A out of the pushchair for our picnic, it didn’t become unstable like a lot of pushchairs do.  Not having access to a car during the week it is really important for me to have a sturdy pushchair that I can take enough things for a day out whilst still maintaing easy use of the pushchair.  The Loola certainly does this!

On Saturday morning we were awoken at a silly time by Little Miss A so managed to get out of the house early to go on our next round of exploring!  Since being up near Hull for nearly two years now we had still not gotten around to visiting the Foreshore or the Country Park next to it so we thought this would be the ideal opportunity to get out and about and put the Loola through it’s paces.  We packed the Loola into the boot of the car and off we went!

First up we visited the Foreshore.  It was really nice to have a walk down by the Humber in the sunshine.  There were a few rickety, narrow paths to go along which the Loola coped with very well and Little Miss A didn’t complain about the ride!  We managed to get some lovely photos of the Loola with the fabulous Humber Bridge in the background, OK so it may not be hidden but I would say it is definitely a treasure – getting that close to it you really appreciate the scale of the bridge.

After a stroll around, next we visited the Country Park which is right next door to the Foreshore.  The first ‘treasure’ we found was a lovely little play park so we let Little Mr A run off a little energy before moving on.

Next we discovered an old, disused windmill and outside of it were the old milling stones.

We then went for a little walk in the park itself.  The Loola coped very well with the uneven terrain.  The only thing it did get a little stuck on was the tree roots, however, I think this would be the same with any pushchair!

Overall we are really impressed with how well the Loola copes over different terrains and how comfy Little Miss A is in it for long periods of time.

Look out for task 3 next week!
