Inside My Summer Bag

Summer has started and it is time to pack the all purpose Summer Bag.  
Here is what is inside mine:
My bag and a waterproof / sandproof blanket.  
The angle is wrong, the blanket easily fits inside the bag.
 All of this (plus more: listed below) is in the Summer Bag.
Small clutch purse to only carry money and ID
Cover Up / dress to go out to eat in
Touch-up make up bag:
-tinted moisurizer/sunscreen
- concealer
- pressed powder and brush
- chapstick with sunscreen
- swimmers ear
- large tooth comb
- water proof mascara (to stay put after the kids splash)
 - Leave in conditioner / detangler
- Neutrogena Sunscreen
- Off Bug Spray
- Antibacterial wetwipes
- Purel that can hook on the bag for easy access
- First Aid Kit : lots of bandaids (the fabric kind that doesn't come off in is amazing how easily pruney toes get cut up while swimming), scissors, tweezers, eye drops
Things not shown:
- kid goggles
- sunglasses for the family (many pair live in every car)
- kid water shoes
With everything in its case, it is amazing how compact it all becomes.
 Just add towels and snacks and you are on your way for a great trip!!!


It is soccer season and the kids love to play.

Just keep swimming

Swimming lessons were so much fun!  
After only 2 weeks...
Nic loves swimming...
Kate is swimming all by herself!
And because she wouldn't be my daughter without putting something in her mouth

My little artist.  First to admit, he didn't get this from me!
 The precision with water color at only 3.5 yrs old is outstanding!
No! I swear no one helped him...Mimi and D-dad can vouch.
 And my little girl...isn't she cute.
She had to remove her clothes due to her elaborate painting technique.
