Let's see how they used to transport us babies back in the day.
Here's me in some sort of contraption. I'm sure that was a legit stroller back then, but it cracks me up how much it looks like a jerry-rigged grocery cart. I can see my parents using wire cutters and a stapler, throwing in a pillow and saying, "There! We made a stroller."
Adam in the front, Eric in the back, Gramma Paula pushing. It looks like my stroller in the first picture, but with an extra seat, yes?
Adam and his big brother Eric. It looks like there is a cute carousel print on the fabric.
Here is Adam's childhood pram before we reupholstered it.
We decided on red. We call this color "Irrgang Red". For some reason, we decided our family color is red. So we paint everything red, upholster things red, etc. Please tell me someone else out there has a family color, too.
Little V in the re-upholstered stroller. I wish I still had a baby little enough to fit in that thing. It made me stupidly happy to push that thing around. We called it the "perambulator". Just to annoy ourselves.
When we needed the pram for Piper, we stuck Violet in the red lawn wagon.
I miss that chubby little foot poking up out of the stroller.
Both of my girls spent a lot of time in a baby wrap.
One more photo...best for last. This one KILLS me! It's Adam's parents on a sailboat and they've tied a rope around Eric's waist. A rope. Isn't that funny? You can also see the baby carriage under his mom's arm. The basket part lifts out so you can move it around.
If any of you have photos of your baby carriages I'd love to see them.
