Oh sweet, sweet summertime! It’s time for the sun, sand, & sea and all of the fun family times that come with it! Our family will spend hours in the sand and listening the waves crash while we build sand castles and chase around the beach ball in the sun. Last year was the first year our trips were actually easy with a three year old and five year old, because we could spend hours out there without having to worry about packing a ton of stuff. This year.. our beach trips will be just a tad bit different with a newborn in tow.
If you’re a family that likes to vacation on the beach, I have these 3 Summer “Must-Have’s” for you! Last summer, we borrowed a beach cart from friends and it was a LIFESAVER. I was psyched to find the Tommy Bahama Beach Collection at BJ’s this year for a fraction of the price of what they go for at other places!
Here are my 3 Summer “Must-Have’s” for your beach vacation you can snag at BJ’s Wholesale Club!
Tommy Bahama SPF 100 Beach Shelter
$29.99 available in-club
Especially with a baby this year, it’s integral we have something to shield her from the sun. That aside though, I’m also a stickler for sun safety. Cancer is something really sensitive to me losing my mom, an aunt, and all four grandparents to different types of cancer. While it wasn’t skin cancer, I’m a firm believer that we should protect ourselves from every type and do what we can to teach our kids about proper skin protection. This beach shelter is not only easy to set up, but it’s huge too! We can fit our beach chairs in there, plus toys and other things for the kids.
Tommy Bahama Beach Chairs with Footrest
$49.99 each available in-club
When life gets rough, I like to hold on to my dream,
Of replacing in the summer sun, just settin’ off steam!
I feel like Olaf relaxing in the summer sun getting gorgeously tanned in summer, while lounging in these totally awesome beach chairs! Seriously, you guys – – this is the Cadillac of beach chairs! Look at my kids lounging in our front yard! Now I’ll just sit in my beach chair and close my eyes and imagine the warm sand between my toes and water splashing my feet!
And last, but not least….
Tommy Bahama Beach Cart
$49.99 available in-club
Well, to carry all of the above of course! These beach carts are AWESOME and a LIFESAVER with kids! You can hang your chairs on it and throw in your umbrella, beach shelter, toys, snacks – you name it and the big wheels make it easy to push over the sand. We fit so much into this cart and went to and from the beach multiple times from our beach house making those trips that much easier while toting the kids too!
All three of these items are available in club at a BJ’s near you!
Now… if you have a little one, like me; find out my tips for making the most of your beach vacation with a baby in tow.
- If you pack up your beach cart with a great beach canopy you’re already off to a good start. Unless your baby is old enough for sunscreen, keep a sun hat handy too.
- Mini battery operated fans can be a great thing to keep on hand. It’s so important you make sure you keep babies out of the sun, but also that they don’t get overheated. When they’re really little, they’ll likely just sleep; so keep that little fan handy to put over their sweet little faces every once and a while for a quick and easy cool off.
- Breast Milk popsicles. If your baby is old enough, I found this idea on Pinterest and it’s brilliant! You could pop a few of these in your cooler to give baby to cool down and for an easy treat!
BJ’s has a huge selection of sunscreen you can stock up on for your bigger kids too! I love how I can go there and stock up on literally everything I need to gear up for a week at the beach and not have to go anywhere else.
