Beach’n Babies

*The following post is sponsored, all opinions are my own*

August is here and I can’t believe summer is almost over, this week this kids are taking a much needed beach trip with their Nana and Papa, so we decided to test out our brand new beachmate  at the local sand park.  First off I love that it’s engraved with our family name, this gives it a classic spin.  Having a custom piece really stands out while on vacation.

As a mom of 4, it’s so important to have my hands free, so this durable strap really came in handy after everyone was finally out of the car and in route to the park.  I love that it’s comfortable enough for Elle to carry, while I’m busy rounding up the younger boys.

Once we hit the park it was over, the fun began and the kids went to work.  I love the that all of the containers can double as organization or just plain toys!  The shovels are extremely durable and they are actually industrial strength so I know they will last forever, especially being a mom of 3 boys.

The beachmate also comes with a cooler, this was so perfect because I was able to pack up some snacks for the kids and an extra bottle for Axel.  Did I mention the tote bag has several pockets?  Oh my gosh, this is so necessary for my car keys, cell phone, sun block, shades, literally anything you can think of!  And on top of that it’s bottomless so there’s no issues of having sand in your car or home after the trip.

Whenever we are out in the sun we ALWAYs pack our Nuby water bottles, because staying hydrated is a must.  The cooler kept the water cool and I never have any issues with the kids drinking their water with these awesome bottles!

Now that the test run is over, I have the kids swimsuits, beach chairs and of course the beachmate packed up and ready to hit the road.  Be sure to head over and snag your very own Beachmate here trust me your family will love it and it’s so durable it’s totally worth every penny! No more cracked buckets being replaced every year.  These containers are so sturdy and legit!

How are you guys celebrating the last days of summer?  I’m enjoying all the fun memories with the kids before they head back and we have to be on a schedule.

Until next time….

Terrific Two’s

Now that Easter is over, I can get back into the swing of things!  I have really been getting this Mommy of 4 role down.  The kids are back in school from Spring Break and everyone has welcomed Axel with open arms.  Life has been pretty smooth but now we are dealing with the Terrific Two’s as I like to call them.  Jagger has enter the stage of independence, mischief, curiosity and TANTRUMS.

Recently I have been able to scratch off  dinner melt down from my list thanks to Nuby’s amazing Sure Grip Miracle Mat!  Normally when Jagger is done or he has a tantrum he wants to throw his plate on the floor, but thanks to this mat he’s no longer giving me a hard time and extra cleaning might I add.  Here’s what I love about the mat:

  • Integrated Section Plate
  • Non-Slip base sticks to flat surfaces
  • Plate and placemat in one
  • Silicone easily wipes clean and is dishwasher safe
  • BPA Free
  • Available at Babies R US 

I’m also thankful for the Nuby 360 cup!  This cup really preps your toddler for independent drinking out of regular cups and they do not leak!!!!! Your toddler has 360° sipping which is easily allows them to sip from any side of the rim. It even has an insulated base that keeps drinks cool for up to 6 hours!  Yo ucan snag this cup at Babies R Us as well!

Just thought I’d share a few items that are making #MomLife less stressful for me.  Anyone else having fun with the terrific two’s?  Until next time….

S is for Spring & Soccer

*The following post is a sponsored blog post with Nuby, all opinions are my own *

Yesterday we started a new adventure with the #HWTH crew, Maveric started soccer!  I can’t believe my little guy is about to be 4 and he’s already into sports.  Currently the kiddo’s are taking swimming lessons and now we have soccer and next week Elle is hitting the pavement and starting out with the running club.  With all of these extra curricular activities, it’s so important to stay hydrated and thanks to Nuby’s new Thirsty Kids water canteen we are doing just that!

This canteen holds 12 oz of water which has been perfect during breaks.  I love that it’s easy to grip and that the spout stays clean when closed.  The silicone band makes it easy for little hands to grip as you can see above, and it’s BPA free.

With this durable plastic we are surly going to make it through the entire season with this one.  Be sure to snag one for your active little person from Target . What are some of the activities that you have signed your little ones up to start this season?  IMG_0855

I’m not sure what it is about kids, and new cups but this one has received two thumbs up.  Thanks to our friends at Nuby for the cool new canteen.  Until next time….
