In these long hot days of summer, the pool seems to be a consistently happy diversion. I’ve figured out a system that makes our trips a snap. All I have to do is put on my bathing suit, grab a towel and the pool bag.
The trick of the whole system is to restock the bag as soon as you get home. Or whenever you dig out the wet bathing suits. Which around here, usually happens after Bri goes down for a nap. The pool always tuckers her out.
Here’s the list of items that I keep stocked in the bag.
- Sunscreen (30 SPF)
- Sun hat
- Bri’s bathing suit (she changes when we get there so I don’t have to worry about an extra outfit)
- Two swim diapers
- An extra regular diaper (for when we go home)
- Pool toys
- Bottle of apple juice, Gatorade or water
- Sippy cup
- Snack (mandarin oranges or applesauce)
