Nothing says “nap time” like a trip to the beach or pool! Allow me to clarify that first sentence. I am not referring to myself napping at the beach or pool. ( I wish.) I am referring to visiting the beach and/or pool with littles ones. The beach is the perfect place for little ones to play, splash and use outdoor voices. Even if nap-time is non-existent in your home, these fun outdoor activities are a fantastic way to enjoy summer and possibly even let out a little bit of energy!
Hampton and I basically live at the beach or pool all summer long. I am so excited to share with you what I typically pack for a beach or pool outing. I also wanted to share a few summer time must-haves from when Hampton was younger that I personally used during our summer outings.
