Day 187 - Beach Boys

Today's First Time Parenting Tip - Get your baby a pop-up tent for trips to the beach

Took our son to the beach for the first time this weekend, and he absolutely loved it. Loved playing in the sand, loved being in the water, seeing all the people and boats. Smiled the whole time we were there.

And we were able to stay for awhile because we had a little pop up tent we brought with us. It packs down completely flat, to about a foot-and-a-half circle. Even though we had him slathered with 45 spf sunscreen and had clothes on him, being out in the sun for an hour or even two would have been bad for him. Plus it would have been heck on his eyes.

The tent was great because we could throw him in there, he was shaded, we didn't have to worry about the sun in his eyes, and we had a place to feed and change him without getting sand everywhere. Plus he loved playing in it. I think he could have slapped the sand underneath the floor for hours and been completely content.
