5 on Friday {summer dreams}

1} With another snow storm looming...we are thinking SUMMER.  We got our Island Beach State Park driving pass.  I am looking forward to long days spent on the beach sunning, reading and relaxing.  Of course the husband and boys will just be fishing...

We invested in a privacy shelter for rinsing off, changing and pottying.

With the kids we must be prepared for emergencies.  The shelter and Luggable Loo courtesy of Cabela's.

It's not fancy, but does the job.

Some more fun + sun items:

2} Thick beach towels

Get everyone in the family their own monogrammed.  That way no fighting over towels and perfect for pool parties...you'll get your towels back!

3}  The only beach bag worth mentioning

We all have our surnames or initials on a bean bag, but order additional ones for the pool or beach and monogram as such; Pool, Beach, Summer, Sun, Sand, Shore, etc...

4} The best beach chair

Head rest, carry strap and cup, book, smartphone holders make this the most versatile.

5} A cute suit and cover-up

This one-piece is classic and will suck me in while chasing the 4YO all over the beach (running in the sand is not a graceful moment for me...)

This tunic is currently on sale @ J.Crew + 20% off for cardholders.  I also used a rewards card and ebates and got even more off.  Note: it runs big, I'm swimming (no pun intended) in a medium.

What warm thoughts are you dreaming of? Have a fabulous weekend.

Thanks for visiting!
