Summer Essentials

IMG_4799

I’ve seen quite a few “Summer Essential” type posts with favorites listed out of sunscreens, sun hats, snacks, bathing suit picks, etc… and I do love those posts. I do. Who doesn’t love a good round up? But you know what our summer essentials are? Water and fun field trips. That’s what summer is all about for us. Pools, splash pads, lakes, sprinklers, you name it, we want to use it or swim in it. Add a zoo, hike or ice cream (always ice cream!) and we can call it a perfect summer day.

What are your favorite things to do in the summer?

    Oh gosh how good do those sprinkler things coming out of the ground look!? Oh to be a little kid!

    I call those our weekend adventures. I love finding new things to do and explore as often as I can.

  3. Love Finley’s little swimsuit- I bought the same one for my daughter this week & am really hoping it fits for the next few months of warm weather! Happy summer!

  4. Our weekends consist of swimming at grandparents, water parks and any place that my son can dig in the dirt!

    Seeewwww cute!

    I don’t know if you’re taking requests as far as blog content – but i’d love to hear more clean eating ideas and hear more about yours/kevs workout routines.

    Love this blog!

  6. Cute post! What zoo is that? Looks like our favorite one: Brevard Zoo in FL near my parents house. If so, just wait until they’re old enough to do the Treetop Trek for kids. It’s awesome!

  7. Can’t think of anything more darling than a baby in swimwear!

  8. We just took our kids to the zoo recently! I love going to the zoo in the summer – and we love lakes, beaches, rivers, etc!! 🙂

  9. Our summers are all about the beach. Also Finley’s bonnet is super adorable.
