Fantasy Beach Day


I love going to the beach but now having 2 kids it's a whole different type of fun. It takes about 2 hours to prepare everything. Need to pack a cooler, snacks, extra clothes, diapers, beach toys, towels, sunscreen, beach chairs, stroller, etc.  Then I need to change the boys into their bathing suits, lather them in their sun tan lotion, get their sandals on, make sure they have gone to the bathroom, swim diaper is on, hats are located, etc.
 I have to then get myself ready which is usually a rush (at this time boys and husband are anxiously waiting to get to beach). I have tossed up my hair up in a very unsexy/unbeacy pony tail, I have some lame bathing suit on that I found tucked way in the back of my bureau and throw on anything decent I can find to wear over it, and some flip flops and sunglasses and that will have to do.  If I'm lucky my nails/toes will be painted. My cuteness factor is definitely lacking. 
Then coming home it's the unpacking of all the above items, cleaning up 10 pounds of sand and then preparing for dinner and bath/bed time. Despite all this work it is well worth  seeing the boys play in the sand and in the water and to see them so happy. Family beach day is super fun, but it is not exactly relaxing for my husband and I. So here is my beach day for just me!

  3. Yes, the lathering up of the sun lotion is the funnest part:) My husband helps with that but it's a total of 5 of us with sun lotion, makes it a bit hard to just lay down and relax. Cute blog. New follower. www.heartbeatcompanies.blogspot.com

  7. Our boys are around the same ages---and we just got back from a week vacation at the beach! Oh, remember those good old days when all you do is sleep and read---not anymore:) But one can dream, right? And I still think we need those cocktails after attempting to take wild toddlers to the beach!

    1. Did you have a "Stay"cation or did you go away? I have a weeks vacation in August. I figure by the end of summer, I will have our beach routine down and will hopefully get prep-time cut down in half and maybe even have had a day or two at the beach by myself (naahhh..who am I kidding, I'm never going to be able to pull that one off lol)
