The kid's spring break, here in Texas, falls way too early in my opinion but it's a week off from school so I'm not going to complain too much. It's already the middle of February and we will be off to the beach before you know it. I've rounded up a few of my favorite items for our trip. This straw hat will be perfect to keep the wicked sun off my face and the sunscreen will protect the rest of my body. Shiny, temporary tattoos for fun in the sun? Heck yes...my daughter and I have been waiting patiently this winter to put these on. An oversized blanket for the beach while wearing these ever so popular brown sandals will take our lazy days to a whole new level. Last but not least a new fjallraven backpack to fill with our accoutrements and make traveling a breeze.
