I remember when going to the beach involved, a towel, my phone and sunscreen. Now it involves half a house at this point since having a toddler and baby. 😂 I have pretty much gotten down to a T after 4 summers 💆♀️👌
Our absolute MUST haves when heading off to the beach are sunscreen, water bottles, first aid kit and bug spray. The rest of the items I wouldn’t say I absolutely need to go to the beach but it certainly makes the trip much more enjoyable. 🏖
I’m pretty positive I’ve included everything we bring to the beach minus our everyday diaper bag items. For the following items I would highly recommend getting a foldable beach wagon to lug it all for you.
~~~~~~~~~Handy Items to Bring~~~~~~~~~~
some sort of quick up shade, always extra towels, beach blanket, mini portable Bluetooth speaker, buckets/shovels/etc, battery operated mini fan ( mostly for the baby), beach cover up (we love the towel versions) snacks, snacks, snacks, wipes, extra outfits, baby pool (inflatable baby pool to keep baby in the shade), puddle jumpers, water shoes, baby carrier, sun hats, wet bags, a couple bath toys for the baby, some sort of mini cooler with ice packs, a mesh bag for the wet/dirty sand toys and sunglasses for everyone! ☀️
To pack everything, I use my handy thirty one bags.
Some of these things we could do with out but we typical spend 3+hrs at a time. Surprisingly it takes me about 5 minutes to set up while wearing the baby, and about the same to pack up☺️👌
If anyway has some different must haves (or questions ) of their own drop them below 🔽🔽

@vice published the amazing story about our retail partner @farmersdaughtercountry repopulating Cape Breton. In need of more staff, they offered applicants employment and 3 acres of land in exchange for a long-term commitment to living on the island. Sisters Heather and Sandee have received more than 100,000 applications over the past 4 months. What a great example for rural businesses!
I'm very sad that @rogethedog is home going into hamstring surgery tomorrow 😢 but I am also V happy that I am being his place holder on my parents romantic getaway to Nantucket 😉 we'll be home soon dad! In the meantime...mama date!
Today my godson said something so profound.
We got into a conversation about colours and how I really loved one of the colours on his multiclick pen; it was a light pink - surprise surprise, I know.
Quickly I said, “Well I am a girl so I should like pink; pink is for girls.”
His response? “No Auntie Jax, pink is for everyone. Every colour is for every person.”
Proudest moment ever.
Today we’re smoking on some new heat from @spacebrosinc, this ones the El Chapo’s Rockstar. This one is extremely loud and potent but I guess that’s what you get when you cross two heavy hitters like this. The Rockstar is a Canadian classic that’s been around for years, then you take a heavy El Chapo Og and put that in the mix. The result is a super gassy indica hybrid that’ll have you stuck to the couch. The bud structure is tight with still some give to it but extremely sticky. The buds are darker green with hints of purple throughout especially when you get deep into the buds the purp comes out. The nose on this one is pure gasoline the classic loud of smell that you can’t conceal with a bit of the earthiness in the mix. When you light this one up the gas comes out even heavier in the taste department. We were already loving this strain then we found out @91supreme had ran this one into a HTFSE so we had to track some of that down. Once we did we just went crazy for this strain the concentrate had the same gassy note to it. The consistency is saucy with nice sized diamonds in the mix. Ether way if you come across this strain in flower form or concentrate be warned that this one is a heavy hitter. Definitely not the strain to smoke first thing in the am, for sure a day ender here. So if your suffering from insomnia or extreme pain this strain should help. So keep up the good work @spacebrosinc, also good call @91supremeofficial for running this one. The flowers are available from @quadcity.to1.
Oh how I love engagement sessions! These two were such a joy to capture and their love for one another was so beautiful to be around. H+S , thanks for sharing your story and your evening with me last week. 💕
