One of our favorite things to do in the summer is swimming in our pool. With the sunshine comes the sunscreen, and that’s one of the kid’s least favorite things. Stephen is not as bad now, but Layla tends to hate it. I find the stick sunscreen the easiest to use on fussy, fidgeting kids, especially their little faces. I absolutely love my sunscreen oil for myself! It smells amazing and it makes my skin so soft and not greasy at all. And my sunscreen fluid for my face is perfect, since I still tend to have acne at 35 (grrr!). It doesn’t clog my pores or make my face greasy.
The kids are fortunate enough to have many of our family members living right next to us, including their 3 cousins that they adore. They all have so much fun swimming together. Stephen finally got his nerve back up to conquer the slide alone. He did it last year, but for some reason, he was afraid of it this year and wouldn’t do it without anyone catching him.
Layla loved her baby pool and slide combo that we set up. It kept her distracted for the most part, but once in a while she wanted to do what everyone else was doing.
We were lucky enough to have some beautiful weather this past weekend and got to spend tons of time swimming and grilling and hanging out.
They also got lots of playground time. All the activity is always great for wearing the kids out too, and causing them to fall asleep early and easy (bonus!).
What do you all like to do on these beautiful days? And what are your favorite products to use in the summer time for yourselves and your kiddos? Let me know in the comments.
