The temperatures are soaring, flowers are blooming, the sun is shining. . . it feels like summer to me. For our family, summer means impromptu play dates, trips to the splash park, lazy beach days, and lots of ice cream. It’s hard living a block from the best ice cream spot in our city, but somebody’s got to do it. 😉
The bad part? The crazy mess that’s left over when the fun is done.
Or even worse, running late because you can’t find the sunscreen or mosquito spray or insert whatever else you can’t leave without.
Enter the summer bag.
One place for all your essentials to be immediately emptied out and repacked when all the fun is done.
The summer bag was our sanity saver last summer, and this year will be no exception. Here’s my list of 10 items we don’t leave home without, and a few nice-to-haves for certain outings.
