For Lolli and me, summer isn’t truly summer until we’ve seen the ocean and felt sand between our toes! Our family is heading to the beach for a few days of vacation, and here’s what we’re packing the kids for our #lolliandmetravels this month.
For Baby Girl
This is our first beach vacation with a baby girl! I’m packing plenty of sweet swimwear and sunsuits for little Liza’s first time at the the beach. We’ll pack towels for “tummy time” and a float or two for her to try in the splash pool. And of course, we can’t forget lots and lots of hats and sun protection for her baby-soft skin. My favorite brand for summertime sweetness the ever-cute Beaufort Bonnet Co line of classic clothing items in pretty patterns. Here’s what’s going in Liza’s suitcase:
For Big Boys
Since our beach trip lands on Fathers Day weekend this year, the boys are celebrating “Dada” by going shark fishing with him one morning, and I’ve packed outfits for the boat that are in-theme with the occasion:
Now that my boys have learned how to swim, they’ve started to enjoy wearing their goggles and diving for toys in the pool. Give them a beach bucket and tools for sand-castle building, and they’re happy as clams all day on the beach, too!
We still pack floaties for dips in the ocean. A great find this year were the boys’ monogrammed puddle jumper covers from The Smocking Bug. (Our exact ones are sadly no longer available, but you can find all kinds of colors and patterns available online):
And here are some other items I’m packing for my beach boys:
