Six Ideas for a Summer to Remember (Just don’t forget your Hawaiian Tropic)

As much as I love Spring there is something to be said for Summer. There is just so much to do and people to see, most of it spent outdoors. So make sure you wear your sunscreen! Here are my six favorite activities to do in the Summer starting with my favorite: pool time! I love laying out, swimming, playing with the boys in the water and hopefully this Summer we will finally teach Jax to swim! It’s so relaxing laying out in nothing but a swimsuit, until you fall asleep that is! So make sure you protect your delicate skin with a sunscreen like Hawaiian Tropic® Silk Hydration™. I love this one because it has hydrating ribbons of luxurious silk protein and Shea Butter. Hawaiian Tropic® Silk Hydration™ Weightless Face Lotion pampers with 12 hours of moisturization, leaving skin soft as silk. The formula leaves you feeling hydrated and pampered like no other sunscreen can. 
Hawaiian TropicMy second favorite Summer activity is spending time at the beach. Any beach will do but I love heading down to the in-law’s in South Walton, Florida. On the Gulf you would be hard pressed to find a better place to get all sandy. Palm Trees, dunes. white sand, Heaven! The only downside is the sun is very strong there so sunscreen is an absolute must. We went for Spring Break and 1 hour left me with a nasty sunburn. Hawaiian Tropic® Silk Hydration™ sunscreens are as protective as they are indulgent, providing broad spectrum UVA and UVB protection combined with the luxurious skin enhancing nourishment of a premium moisturizer. I wish I had this product with me during the trip and that sunburn could have been avoided.
Beach One thing we love to do all year-long is hiking as a family. There are so many amazing parks and trails that we are still finding new ones to explore. Make sure to pack a lot of water, snacks and of course your sunscreen. Hiking in the Summer can be brutal.
Fashionable HikingWhat’s better than visiting your local Farmer’s Market? Waking up early on a Saturday morning and visiting this magical place with fresh fruit and vegetables, flowers and local artists is the most amazing way to spend my Saturday morning. Our favorite is the Pepper Place Market that goes on every Saturday rain or shine. If you are ever in the area this is a must see!
Pepper Place Farmer's MarketFor family fun we love taking the kids to the local Zoo. I mean, how cute is Jaxon feeding the pig! So cute and so much fun for the whole family. I swear it’s one of the only family activities where the boys will actually behave and enjoy themselves! Just make sure everyone is wearing sunscreen, especially the kids. The Hawaiian Tropic® brand offers experiential sun protection by pampering your skin with luxurious moisturization while indulging your senses with soothing scents and exotic island botanicals. Something I need when hanging out with the boys, indulgent scents!
PCB Zoo Lastly, what is everyone’s favorite part of Summer? Getting out-of-town and going on vacation. In these photos we took a trip out to Arizona to visit my mother and she keeps us busy with so many fun and different outdoor activities. On this trip in particular my mom flew my family, my bother’s family and my sister out and it was so amazing getting everyone together again. What’s better than seeing your loved ones, especially after years of no-contact? We went boating, cliff diving, hiking, and so much more. and it’s so incredibly fun! And how amazing is the London Bridge? Isn’t it just beautiful?!
