We’ve really been enjoying our summer so far, trying our best to make it the best summer ever!

We took a day recently to explore a local hiking spot we’ve never been to! Staying outside and active is my key to keeping my kids having a fun exciting summer and also keeping my own sanity! The less we’re cooped up indoors, the better! We loved our hike, taking in all of the gorgeous views, looking at the big tall trees, animals and a creek! We made sure to pack snacks, water, sunscreen and of course the camera to make sure our day was enjoyed to the fullest! Hiking in the sun

For Father’s Day, we were lucky enough to have family in town to celebrate with us, but once they left we took our Simply Real Dad out to our local airport to check out the planes some of the local guys have built and fly around the area! Dad's Sunscreen

What a great day it was! We went in the morning, but boy was the sun HOT! We made sure to pack the sunscreen for our day out and stayed safe while we had a great time checking out airplanes, helicopters, and chatting with the pilots! Dad sure appreciated the Mens’ Triple Defense sunscreen! It is made just for guys and even smells manly too!

Banana Boat Triple Defense Sunscreen for Men is the first Banana Boat sunscreen portfolio designed specifically for men.  The Skin Cancer Foundation revealed that men over age 50 are more than twice as likely as women to develop skin cancer, yet only 51 percent of men in the U.S. admitted to using sunscreen in the past 12 months. Men were also found to be less knowledgeable than women about the proper methods to protect themselves against sun exposure and skin cancer. To help combat this, Banana Boat designed Triple Defense Sunscreen with men in mind. The light-weight formula combats odor, even while sweating, and hydrates the skin. It’s great for dads who are outside and active with their kids this summer!

So far, we are truly having the best summer ever! We are making a point to get out and do something fun twice (or more) per week, along with our daily fun at the park, pool or walks! How are you making your summer the best??
