WHAT TO BRING TO KEEP IT SIMPLE AND FUN!
Summer is close to coming to an end but that doesn't mean it's too late to take one more day trip to the beach (or river or lake)! Getting away from it all once more will help soothe the adrenals and it will bond the family to have one more day trip together. For us, the hardest part about going anywhere is packing and getting out but once we're there it is so fun and so worth it!
FAVORITE BEACH ITEM RECOMMENDATIONS:
A PORTABLE HIGH CHAIR
These portable camping high chairs have been so helpful! Feeding the babies outside is a breeze and it folds up very small for convenient portability!
A great picnic blanket (or two) is a must for the beach! These are great- waterproof, layered and the material won't get too sandy.
There are so many great coolers, it's hard to choose. Long straps and backpack styles are great for carrying to the sand.
This brand has our favorite sand toys.
These are great for shade if you're there a long time and tend to burn.
Our favorite brand of sunscreen. Surfers and lifeguards like this one.
These stackable snack containers are awesome for families and very portable for the beach, hikes, camping or any vacation.
These are pricey but they're the best!
This can be helpful if your baby will nap or rest while you're there.
Walks on the beach are perfect with a great carrier.
UV protection shirts for the kids.
Make sure they have UV protection.
First aid kit, just in case.
These adorable hats are grow with me and have sun protection!
PORTABLE & SAND FREE TOWELS
These fancy beach towels are compact, sand free and still super absorbant.
WATER BOTTLE TOTE
These aren't technically made for water bottles, but we love using them for everyone's bottles!
OCEAN ACTIVITIES FOR THE WAY THERE
Mess free activities for the car or plane ride.

TEA CLOTHING FOR BABIES AND KIDS
I love the Tea Clothing collection more than any other kids clothing brand I've found so far. They have globally inspired style, are a give back company (10% goes back to kid foundations), started in 2002 in San Francisco and of course are extremely high quality, durable and ADORABLE! Adurable?! One cool thing you may not know about them though is that they have an entire line dedicated to reusing their clothes which is great for the environment and also the budget since pricing is reduced, greatly. Tea Rewear also lets you choose very specific designs since there are so many options, going back years. For example if you're looking for a s'mores shirt because you're going camping or a birthday themed shirt for the big day, they have so many options. Here is a code to get $10 off if you spend $100. If you're like me and have a hard time resisting adorable kids clothes, give them a try.
