I did a “What’s in my Bag” post a while ago, but now that it’s summer my daily necessities have changed a bit. Which is why I am doing another one, but just with my summer stuff.
I bought a back pack for summer. A backpack is so much easier to carry than a purse. So I went and picked this one up from walmart for less then $20.00. I love this pattern though.
Inside the main part of the bag, I have 4 different types of sunscreen. For myself I have SPF 15 and SPF 4 I always use 4 on my legs as they never seem to get any sun no matter how long I am out side, and then I’ll use it on the rest of me depending on how hot the sun feels, or how long I’m out side for. I also carry SPF 15 for the days that I am outside longer, or if the sun feels real hot. For the kids I use SPF 30, This one is just a cheap off brand but works just as well, we spend a lot of time outside, in the sun weather it’s at the park, the beach or my back yard, They’ve never gotten burnt. I like the continuous spray one as I can just line them up and spray them down. However, you can’t use the aerosol on their faces, so I also carry a lotion one too. In the main part I also keep diaper wipes because you never know when your going to need them, there is also plenty of room for water bottles and a change of clothes if we need them.
The front little pocket is perfect for my makeshift first aid kit. In that I have My niece’s inhaler, and some allergy medicine for her. She had really bad asthma and allergies it helps to have that on hand. I’ve also got band aids, and some hand sanitizer.
On one side I have a bottle of bubbles and a toy car, you never know when they’ll get fussy because they’re bored, or you might just want to blow bubbles.
The other side, I have a spare key for my car, because the amount of times I lose my keys or lock them in my car (or worse the trunk) is a bit embarrassing. I also have a portable phone charger because I want to be able to take pictures of the kids, or I need the parents to be able to get ahold of me.
What sort of things do you carry for summer?
