Some Beach...Somewhere

I am linking up with Across the Hall in 2nd  to discuss some of our favorite things to bring to the beach/pool.

First of all, I love this topic because I just got back from a week long vacation in Outer Banks, North Carolina. I wish I could go back so, so, so, so, so (have I made my point) much!  Here are few of my favorite things on the beach.
This isn't the beach we were at but one of our chairs actually looked like this one. It was so nice to recline with your toes in the waves and the sand.
I always have to wear a hat at the pool or the beach. I don't burn very often except for my nose. My nose loves a good burn. I also think fedoras are the cutest. The straw ones do well in the heat too.
I tried this Banana Boat 2 in 1 sunscreen this year and loved it. It goes on smooth and is not greasy at all. I also like that it has aloe in it. After a day in the sun, I always use an after sun lotion. This year I bought the Great Value Wal-Mart brand with lime in it and was pleasantly surprised.
I'm a little addicted to Janet Evanovich right now. I have read most of the Stephanie Plum series and am starting some of her other books. I just love books that make my laugh out loud. These are definitely great books to read in the sun.
We played quite a bit of Corn Hole at the beach. It was fabulous! The boogie boards were also fun and the boys were all over the football.
Everything is better with a great group of friends. This is a picture of some of our group from OBX.
Tomorrow, I swear I'll be back to educational texts. Wherever you are, I hope you are having a wonderful summer! I'm headed to the pool. :)
