5 Must Haves For a Beach Trip With Kids

Hey friends!

Hope you’re enjoying your summer so far! Today I wanted to share our top 5 things we must have for a beach trip with kids!

  1. First up is a shade tent! This is our number one priority when we head to the beach. On the beach there is 0 shade! Sun exposure can be tough on kids – heck it’s hard on me! So with our tent the kids have a place they can cool off and get away from the sun!

This is the one we have! It’s compact and super easy to put up! It also has screens on the sides to let more air in.

2.  Next up a wagon! We already had this one, and it works great for the beach. It also folds up so it doesn’t take up much space in our trunk. It makes lugging everything to the beach a lot easier! There is plenty of room on the inside and pockets on the outside for extra things!

3. A cooler! This one is probably a no brainer for most parents, but just in case I added it on here. Kids love to eat – especially after playing. Snacks and drinks close to the beaches are usually overpriced, and you have to walk out to get them. If you bring your own cooler you save money and time. Two wins in my book! Another trick I’ve learned is the night before I’ll throw a couple of water bottles in the freezer instead of using ice. By the time we need water they’re melted down and drinkable.

4. Baby powder! This may come as a shock to some, but baby powder is always in our beach bag! After you leave the beach and you’re covered in sand baby powder will get the sand off of you! You just shake some into your hand and rub it on your leg or arm to get the sand off! Works like magic, and you all smell good!

5. Portable phone charger. I know for some this may sound a little high maintenance, but I love taking pictures and videos of the kids. We also like to play music while at the beach. Having your phone die stinks! So we take our portable charger so we don’t have this issue! We bought one with multiple ports so we have them if needed.

My Life!

Hello Everyone!

My name is Lee! I’m a mother to two. A 10 year old son, Parker and a 2 year old daughter, Sophia. I’ve been married to my husband Erik for 4 years. He serves in the Air Force and we’re currently stationed in Colorado Springs. We’re from East Tennessee and definitely miss lots of things from the south, like Pal’s sweet tea! I work full time for another base here. We love exploring the area and traveling to other states. We love to hike and ride bikes together. I enjoy crafting, shopping, and reading. My goal with my blog is to share books I enjoy, clothes and shoes, recipes, and pretty much anything else I can think of! Can’t wait to share with ya’ll!

Here’s some pictures!
