Jon and Kristen Kennon came up with the idea while at a local Central Arkansas landmark called the Old Mill. They have two boys, ages 1 and 4. Today was like most days out with the kids, a lot of carrying them around on your hip, shoulders or arms as I am sure most parents of young kids can relate. Jon was carrying a camera bag with a shoulder strap that day and it hung down right about where his hip was so he stuck his three year old on the top of the bag and let the should strap carry the weight, viola! Kristen looked at him and he looked back at her while putting minimal effort towards carrying his kid, they knew it was a genius idea without even exchanging words!
