 It's time to get your beach bag ready for the unexpected trips to the sea or a picnic in the park.  I find it such a challenge to remember everything when a spontaneous trip calls, so I think I will be creating a little beach kit.  I picked up this beach bag from mark. an online boutique that has a little bit of everything and is great for girls on a budget like me.  I was amazed how much I could stash in here:
1. flippers
2. swim board
3. goggles, snorkel mask
4.  snacks
5. sunscreen
6.  insect repellant
7. 2 towels
8.  1 book
9.  B's swim socks
By the way, this bag is reversible and has a cute nautical print on the other side.
Now that I'm back in Texas, I need to make the canine travel team a bag too.  Even though I am only a dog mom I find that while everyone runs to the car and gets buckled in I am left scrambling to bring all the essentials.  Not that I'm complaining because I do like to take care of my family but does that ever happen to you?  Does your family ask you for the sunscreen, chips and expect it to come out of your "magic bag?"  Well, since this is my role, I use it to my advantage and justify my bag obsessions by explaining that I need something to carry everyone's gear in!!  So there you have it!
Do you have any tricks to keep your beach bags ready?
