I've got a few ideas to make a beach vacation more enjoyable for you and the kids. Right now we are on vaction in Maryland visiting my parents. That means lots of pool time. I'm loving the Aveeno Continuous Protection Sunblock Spray. Today while at "Grammy's" pool down in Maryland we loaded both girls up with this SPF 45. Hooray for a sunblock with easy application. The Aveeno spray gave an even coat of lotion all over the girls' skin. Unlike other waterproof high coverage lotions, this didn't leave white chalky residue. Suggested Retail $8.99-$10.99
I'm also loving the Ore Diaper Bag Organizer Pouches that I found from Amazon.com's Baby department. I zipped clean outfits for each girl in the "clean" pouch. That way after the kids finished playing and got hosed down I didn't have to tear apart my entire beach bag to get them dressed. This handy labeling system also makes things easy for Grammy, Daddy or the sitter to keep things straight and reduce the list of instructions you have to dole out. $24.95 for a set.
Finally, we are saving a bit of cash this week by checking out theAMC Summer Movie Camp. This summer AMC theaters is offering a series of $1 movies from now until August 6. Across the nation, each Wednesday a select movie is just $1. That's an outing almost any budget can handle. This week the movie is Shrek The Third, next week it is Bee Movie . Log on to AMC Theatres form more details and to find a theater near you.
