Sun Safety - Family Style

Disclosure: This post is sponsored.

My babies are Florida kids through and through, so when summer arrives, we spend a lot of time at the beach. We live not 45 minutes from some of the most beautiful beaches in the world, so to not take advantage of them would be an absolute travesty! There is only one thing that could keep us from our beach fun…and that’s the sun. Haha! I know, that’s what most people go to the beach bask in some rays, right? Well, that’s not exactly the case when it comes to my family. With the exception of my Swedish blooded hubs, who is nice and golden thanks to his marathon training (no fair, haha), we’re a fair skinned bunch and have to be diligent about protecting ourselves from the sun.


That doesn’t mean we stay inside all summer however. No way! We turn to sunscreen, like Banana Boat NEW SunComfort, hats and oversized sunnies! I mean we have plans...We can’t let the sun take one minute of summer fun away from us! In fact, we have a beach vacation in the works, so sunscreen is going to be extra important that week. We’ll probably be spending even more time than usual on the sand and I don’t want my little ones at all! Luckily, we’ve developed a routine over the years that’s kept them from getting even one sunburn.

Sunscreen is step one of, course, in our sun safety routine. Next, comes the sun protecting accessories that I mentioned before. And finally, we typically head to the beach in the later hours of the afternoon, so we aren’t out there during the hottest part of the day. Oh, and I can’t forget an umbrella...We all love relaxing under its shade.
