Summer Must Haves

I am a born and raised Floridian.
I practically came out swimming.
I grew up on the water
 and spent the summers in a constant state of wrinkles from overstaying my welcome in the pool.
I am sure that I was lathered in sunscreen as a child, 
but sad to admit that once those rebellious teen years hit,
I actually thought I was stronger then the sun. 
Instead of sunscreen,
I used baby oil, and I now have the freckles and sunspots to prove it.
How. Stupid.  
But God knows what he's doing.
He didn't make the mind to stay in teenage land forever.
I proudly wear sunscreen now.
 As summer approaches I must make sure to keep my own tiny safe from the sun.
Here are some tips and products we can't live without.

A beach hat is a must.
Not only is this beach hat the most adorable thing I may have EVER seen,
it protects my lady from the sun. We happen to love this hat, from Old Navy.
A Sun tent is the perfect place to lay while napping, nursing, reading a book, etc.
I didn't know what I was missing out on until I recently purchased one.
 Now it's on my must have summer list of 2012.
Sunscreen nearly goes without saying.
We love this sunscreen by California Baby...truth is we love all things from California baby.
 Having a baby at the beach is delightful,
 but it means bringing twice as much as we used to.
This backpack chair is ideal. 
It's one less thing you have to worry about carrying,
 It ranks high for me on the must have list 
and would be the perfect chair if it came with an extra pair of hands.
This zip and carry picnic blanket from Target is by far the best $19.99 I have spent in awhile.
Unlike ordinary beach towels that trap every little piece of sand,
this blanket can be wiped off with ease,
 zipped up and has a convenient handle for carrying.

And there you go. Our summer must haves for this year.
Do you have any you can't live without?
Please do share.

  1. Its like you learn my thoughts! You seem to grasp so much about this, such as you wrote the e-book in it or
    something. I think that you could do with some p.c.
    to power the message home a bit, but instead of that, this is magnificent blog.

    An excellent read. I will definitely be back.
