There was a time in my life that going to the beach meant throwing on my swimsuit and some sunscreen, grabbing a towel and heading out the door. Not anymore! Going to the beach means being comfortable and being prepared to settle in for a few hours. Blanket, bottle of water, creating a shady escape while still looking cute and of course the comforts of a great beach chair. That's just me.
I have 3 kids. They are an entirely different story. Not only do I need the above I also need all the beach gear that will keep them having a great time. So needless to say when we go to the beach we haul A LOT of stuff with us.
