Summer Time: Swim Time

Are your kids ready to hit the waters? 
As a Mom, or parent, we always make it a point to have everything ready for them before they dip in the pool or sea water. I am definite that your checklist includes:
  • Swim suits
  • Sunscreen
  • Hats and sunglasses
  • Towels
  • Goggles
  • Swimming rings and arm floaties
  • Swimming Vest if needed
  • Shampoo and soap

And the other items that should be in your bag if you are off to a swimming getaway are:

  • Flip Flops
  • underwear/diapers
  • comb
  • pocket money / coins
  • snack
  • baby powder
  • insect repellent patches or lotion especially for overnight stay
  • umbrella or kiddie tent
  • plastic bags for wet items

And the list goes on but of course, we only bring what we really need. I have experienced to have packed a lot that there were items that shouldn't have been included and I end up exhausted carrying a heavy bag.

Yesterday, my daughters had fun "swimming" in a large basin. LOL!
The small inflatable pool we have won't keep the air that long anymore so they end up using the basin instead. My elder daughter is just so excited to hit a real pool saying they won't fit in just one basin. Ha! Ha!
I am planning to bring them to a resort near us instead, in case our friends won't have any plans for a summer outing again this year.

we are also planning for a beach swimming but i still do not know when yet, my husband and eldest son are still too busy with their work, maybe before the end of april we could already schedule it :)

Summer already? I love when the seasons change.

Great checklist for families heading to the beach!

How cute! My niece and nephew often bathe inside the same basin-size. They also complain about the capacity of the basin, that's why their mom finally bought them an inflatable pool. =) As for your checklist.. you've got a good list there! Although I haven't packed for any kids yet, I could probably share that I also keep a list of the things that I only need to bring during my travels. It also helps me control the weight of my bag. =)

I can relate on this one as my daughter became a swimming addict the moment she learn how to deep dive, float and paddle ;)
