Rest in Peace, Snap and Go

We are gathered here today to celebrate the life of our dearly departed Snap and Go stroller.

You take to the grave the secrets of your youth, coming to us in your golden years through the mystery and magic of Craigslist. Your straps were frayed, your bolts were rusted, and your frame was scratched. It would have been easy to pass you by, but we knew there was still love in your heart for a few more strolls.Snap and Go's first trip to MI in August 2009 - walking with Grandma A and the guys through her neighborhood.

Thank you for your faithfulness, Snap and Go. You wheeled our babies around many an airport, scrunched yourself down flat through dozens of magnetometers, and endured the cold cargo bin while we flew in our cozy coach class seats. What an adventurous soul you were!

The time has come to say good-bye. We wish we could have sent you to have more adventures with another family now that we have outgrown the blue Snugride carseats, but alas, you are no longer safe for babies since your accident being gate-checked in St. Maartin.

We loved you, Snap and Go. May you rest in peace.
