We have two seasons in Florida: Hot & Bearable. So with that said we spend A LOT of time cooling off in the pool or the local splash pads! I want to get the girls out and they love doing it but I want to keep their delicate little skin safe in the process. Here are my 4 water day MUST haves that we don’t leave home without.

  1. Sunscreen! I don’t care how old or young you are, wear sunscreen. Just do it! For my girls I love to use ones that I know will be safe on their skin. When they were little babies we stuck to the Honest Company (and we still use that) but we also use a brand called Jason Sun as well. I love to use the Jason brand for their bodies then the Honest Company face stick for their faces and ears. I literally have both at home, in my diaper bag AND my car. I know, I am that crazy lady but I just don’t want to see the aftermath of sunburn on their little bodies.
  2. A hat! This one is mainly for my 16 month old but I wont leave home without a hat for her. Even with sunscreen the sun here is just stronger and it can do a number on her skin so I try to keep it protected as much as possible. This hat from ZOOcchini is everything! They have a bunch of different styles and they all are so cute! My favorite feature is the Velcro straps so they cant yank it off. It works beautifully for us!water swim diaper, uva swimwear, swim hat, baby sun hat, swim rash guard, toddler swimwear, sun safe, swim zip, sun hat, baby bathing suit, toddler bathing suit, bathing suit
  3. Swim Diaper: You want to be prepared for anything and you certainly don’t want to be that person with the kid who pooped in the Spray Park or pool so a swim diaper is essential! We love the ZOOcchini swim diapers because they have elastic around the legs and waist and fit very snug around those parts but leave a comfortable look around the rest of the parts. These have been fully tested by my daughter and approved by me (if you know what I mean!!)water swim diaper, uva swimwear, swim hat, baby sun hat, swim rash guard, toddler swimwear, sun safe, swim zip, sun hat, baby bathing suit, toddler bathing suit, bathing suit
  4. Even with sunscreen I want a bathing suit that truly protects their skin so my first choice is always SwimZip. SwimZip provides UPF 50+ sun protection clothing (bathing suits, swim shirts and rash guards) that zips right up the front for the easiest outfit change ever. Wet or dry it is a ZIP to change! We have used these suits year round for over 2 years and we keep going back for more!

I know most are thinking “back-to-school” but whether you live in a warmer climate location or you have some trips planned this winter now is your time to stock up on all of these must haves so when the time comes you are ready! What are your must haves? Let me know below!

  • Florida can’t seem to make up it’s mind with our weather and we keep getting little cold fronts down here! BUT, thankfully @rei has me covered with this lightweight - Trailsmith Anorak keeping me warm and providing me all the pockets 👏🏼 I’m sharing a few of my favorite spring finds from REI #ontheblog now! You know where to find the link ✨ #ad #rei #springfashionfinds
  • I just had to share these adorable captures from last night ✨ This really was such a sweet show and the cast was so nice too! Highly recommend it when it comes to your area! Thank you again @atthecapitol for having us 💕 #americangirllive
  • We really are stretching our girls’ trips these days but how could we say no to a night being hosted at @atthecapitol seeing the American Girl Live show?! #amiright 🤷🏻‍♀️🎉 We had such a blast and I shared a bunch of our night over on their insta so make sure to check it out! ✨ Double tap if you’re little one loves American Girl! If so, you have to see this show when it comes to your town! 💕#americangirl #americangirllive #aglive #americangirltour #capitoltheatre #atthecap #captakeover
  • These boys are still taking 2 naps a day and I’m not sure I ever want to give up these post nap mid-morning smiles ✨ Do I have to? 🤣 When did your little ones transition to 1 nap? #morningnap #twins
  • This photo perfectly sums up this afternoon- just a mess 🤣 1 dressed up mama, 1 kid missing (she’s back there somewhere), 1 kid screaming, 1 kid fake smiling and 1 tired teething toddler 🤦🏻‍♀️ BUT I had the absolute pleasure of meeting with another local news station today (with @aubreyonair who was SO amazing!) for another spotlight and let’s just say this is as real as it’s going to get when it comes to this crazy crew. I can’t wait to share it with you all! Stay tuned ✨ #mamastired #localnews
  • As we wait for our home to be completed (I can taste it it’s so near!) I think back to our last master suite and the one thing I’m missing most is our own bed. There is nothing like climbing into a cloud after a longggg day chasing all the tiny humans and we got that with our @tempurpedic mattress 😴 For the last 8 years that bed has been the place I find comfort in every night and I am so excited to have upgraded our old Tempurpedic mattress to the new TEMPUR-LuxeAdapt for the new house! I’m counting down the sleeps until we get to have our Tempur-Pedic back! Even better with their all new technology and pressure reliving power right were we need it to help rejuvenate us for another full day of parenting 👏🏼 #AD #luxeadapt #tempurpedic
