We love our long days at the beach. The kind where you pack the cooler, a good read, and a big beach blanket, because you’re going to stay until at least a few family members succumb to the afternoon beach nap. It’s the best, only to be topped by a stop for ice cream on the way home. Today we’re sharing our beach essentials.
We never leave home without cozies for the bevies. Now that I’m a Colorado resident, I may have to send a few of these to the beach house. Not rubbing it in or anything. (Sarah here: YES PLEASE!)
We have a few iHome iPod players with rechargeable batteries. This is our favorite (three Schu’s own one!) – plug it in each evening and they’re ready for a day of solid beach tunes.
We just picked up a small beach cabana to keep little A out of the harsh rays.
A pack of cards and a Bananagrams are always on our list.
When someone’s driving a truck beachside, we always throw our ocean kayak on the back.
I can’t wait to see Alex wrapped in his shark towel after his first foray into the waves.
Sarah usually falls once or a dozen times while messing around with her skimboard.
The whole Schu gang is meeting up in Virginia this weekend for a few days of fun in the sun and sand. We hope you have something planned for yourself – whether it’s a short trip or a big pitcher of iced tea on the patio. Enjoy!
