When you’re big family parenting during those final days of summer, staying active is a priority, and creativity is key. With sports and dancing behind us, we’re able to focus on some other activities that allow us to explore our city. With its sunny and mostly mild climate this time of year, San Diego serves as the ultimate summer playground, and one of our favorite neighborhoods to frequent is the posh and picturesque La Jolla.

Oozing with elegance, this coastal “Jewel” boasts some of the most beautiful coastlines Southern California has to offer, and is home to some of the wealthiest residents in the city. A Schaffer fan favorite (long before kids), La Jolla beaches churn waves for days perfect for surfing, and the burgeoning Prospect Street has some of the best shopping and restaurants that, in my opinion, rival some of Beverly Hills’ bougiest. So, it might come as a surprise that we’ve found countless ways to enjoy ourselves in La Jolla that don’t break the bank. My kids love visiting the seals at La Jolla Cove, and what captivates me most is the vibrant and ever evolving art scene. Along with top tier museums and galleries, mural artwork continues to make a splash around town, and in this Instagram obsessed era, just keeps getting better.

My two little ones and I recently spent an entire afternoon on foot, checking out mural artwork throughout the village. You may be thinking “How in the world can you pull that off with two kids under the age of six in tow?” Answer: I wouldn’t dare attempt it without my UPPAbaby VISTA and the VISTA PiggyBack ride-along board – aka Roman’s wheels when he gets too tired to walk. Murals La Jolla Mom and Kids La Jolla UPPAbaby Vista Mom and UPPAbaby VISTA citygirlgonemom Mom and UPPAbaby Vista Baby in strollerMom of multiples and stroller UPPAbaby Vista and kids La Jolla Mom and Stroller La Jolla Mom and kids
Going strong for five years, my love for UPPAbaby hasn’t faltered. This brand knows exactly what multitasking moms of multiples need, and has found a way to make our lives easier. For that reason alone, the Italian mother in me wants to grab them by the cheeks and kiss them.

When it’s just baby Brody and me, we use the lightweight UPPAbaby MINU, with a large, easy to access basket ideal for my supersized camera, diaper bag and entire pantry of to-go snacks. The carry handle, shoulder strap and storage bag are genius for moms on the go like me. As much as we ‘go, go, go’, having a lightweight stroller that I can sling over my shoulder is a gamechanger for getting in and out of cars or going out to dinner. Plus, it’s ultra smooth ride brakes with ease on an incline or busy street. To add, the one-hand, one-step fold, all-wheel suspension is coupled with a lightweight frame (all under 15 lbs.), and that makes the UPPAbaby MINU 100% Mom and baby Brody approved!

Growing up in New York City, I was privy to a plethora of art forms, and street art’s always made an impression. La Jolla’s affluence juxtaposed with its rugged-yet-refined mural art creates a high class, high def experience that is vibrant – and quite frankly rare – just like its namesake “The Jewel.” Like La Jolla, the fleet of UPPAbaby strollers can best be described as ‘Mom’s Crown Jewel’ with its superior quality and attention to detail. A company that makes mothering easier and mom feeling like a pro is worth its weight in gold to me, no matter how many kids I have in tow.

  1. The thing that impressed me the most is the stroller is easy to fld and sling over your shoulder! I guess it is not that heavy then. This work well for someone who is traveling too! Great review. This is a must have especially for parents with few growing kids.

      awe thank you so much for your feedback xoxox

    2. Danielle Lucia Schaffer

      I forgot to add the MINU is extremely lightweight…

  2. Those bags do seem like a lifesaver for storage while on the go. I need to take medical supplies with me wherever I go so that is perfect. I love all of the art in this post, great shots!

  3. This might be the best stroller i have ever seen! I love the step for the older kid and I also love how you can fold it up and carry it as easily as a lawn chair when needed! Amazing

  4. Great stroller and comfortable for us tall girls. They need to design a beach caddy for the family that outgrows the stroller but still needs to lug gear 🙂

  5. That stroller looks perfect for days out, I love that it can be easily carried when not in use. Looks like the perfect item to help you visit places like La Jolla with two children with minimal stress!

  6. What a fun day out on the town with the kids. I love your stroller, it is great that your older one can hitch a ride standing to get a break from walking so much too.

  7. Wow looks like you guys had a blast! I haven’t been to La Jolla in a while but I’m always so amazed by all the shops and art work there.

      me too it seems like a new mural pops up all the time

  8. It looks like you’re having a blast in all of your pictures. So many whimsical and fun moments that you are enjoying with your little ones.

  9. what an adventure so muc hfun, loved all the fun visiting and reading your post as well
