The Married With Kids You Beach Vacation Check List

1……..towels
at least 1 for each of you, used for laying on, sitting on and drying off with….maybe bring a few extra….used also for all the spills during the day…..always on the towels….

2……..sunblock
to keep the kids and you all protected for the day at the beach….know your SPF ahead of time…need to keep reapplying so bring plenty….spray sunscreen is highly recommended ….or you’ll need even more towels for those greasy hands of yours…….

3………beach umbrella
kids will need to get out of the sun and get some shade. …especially the young kids….also can be used when the clouds open up and the rain comes down….typically this happens to me at least 3-4 times a season…….never in the forecast…….

4……….beach chairs
if you really need to sit comfortably…..and also if you have another adult with you to help in carrying them.

5………hats and sunglasses
to keep you all covered and well protected…..and for looking a little cool…make sure the hats have brims to block the sunlight and that the sunglasses protect against the UV rays.

6…….beach and sand toys
to keep everybody happy and amused when they are out of the water pails and shovels,beach balls and a frisbee should work.

7…….book or magazine
just what everybody brings but who are you kidding……you won’t have time to read when you have kids to watch at the beach…….besides the magazine will be soaked and filled with sand by the end of the day.

8……..your ipod or radio
just maybe you can use it..be sure the ipod has a waterproof case on it

9………binoculars
no….not for finding your kids……for looking way out at those funny objects we all see but can never identify…….kids always think they see the loch ness monster.

10…….sweatshirts
even though its a hot day at the beach, you can feel a little chilly ( or downright cold when the sun goes down)

11……..snacks
can’t say enough about this one……kids are always hungry and thirsty at the beach….and you don’t want to go for broke at the concession stands……you don’t even want the kids to know there are concession stands so remember to sit far away from that area…and besides you spent most of your money already for parking…..so bring sandwiches, some chips and plenty of fruits……..and an endless supply of juice boxes.

12……..first aid kit
you never know…..always have at least band aids.

13……..flip flops
kids think they can walk barefoot but that sand is hot….and no matter how much they beg you cannot carry them.

14…….lots of water
whatever you don’t drink you can use to wash off the sand before you get back into your car……but no matter what you do you will bring home a little bit of beach with you………

The Single You

1……a towel
