Thanks for all the responses! I really don't think I'll be able to use a carrier too much even though I'd love to. He's chunky and I'm a wimp! I agree about a 2 year old being difficult, though, so we'll make it work. Also, I really don't want to wait another year.

At 16 months he was more go with the flow and just taking it all in. And he enjoyed the characters. This past trip he wouldn't get near them.

DS didn't walk until he was 22 months old and while we were VERY excited when he finally decided to take those first steps, things were quite a bit easier before that. He didn't argue about the stroller at all.
Now that he's been walking for a year...it's starting to be battle....
Yeah...the carrier can be rough with such a heavy kid (I think DS was a bit over 25 lbs before he started walking) but sometimes it's still the easier option.
I was very excited when DS could simply stand on his own, because then I could stand him next to me while I dealt with the stroller etc.
