Summer Fun with Banana Boat

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Banana Boat®. The opinions and text are all mine.

Hey guys!!!  Summer is right around the corner and with that comes outside fun and sunny days.

After this long winter, I am looking forward to those sunshine-y days where the boys spend all day outside playing on the swings, chasing butterflies, making up secret games in their fort, and swimming at my grandparent’s pool.

I remember being young and spending all day in their pool, splashing and swimming, and seeing how long I could hold my breath under water.  We would break for lunch and my grandma would fix us these amazing turkey sandwiches and brownies, and we would sit on her deck wrapped in towels, water dripping from our hair and eat lunch before jumping back in the pool (always waiting a half hour after eating of course lol).

I cannot wait to have these memories with my boys.

See, when they are out of school for spring break or summer break it can be hard to keep them entertained day after day, and going to the zoo or park every day just isn’t an option (especially for my wallet lol).

So I had to think of ways to keep each day fresh and fun without breaking the bank or leaving the yard lol.

Twice a week we have a special picnic outside.  It is also something my grandma used to do when I was little, so I am happy to do it with my boys.

I let them pick out everything they want for lunch and put it all on a tray, grab a blanket, and we are out the door and ready for a great lunch in the fresh air.

With all this great outdoor fun we have planned for the warmer months, there is something important we need to chat about.  Sun protection!

Both of my boys are quite fair so I have to be super diligent about their sun protection.

That is why I use Banana Boat® Dry Balance™ sunscreen on all of us.  I do not let them out the door without it. I stock up at Walmart when I do my grocery shopping and always pick up a bottle so I’m never caught without it!

Even though you go outside to have an awesome picnic on that breezy spring day, it does not mean they do not need sunscreen.

Sometimes we think they only need sunscreen on those blazing hot days when we go swimming or to the beach, and this is not true.

Anytime your little ones go out in the sun it is important to protect their skin.  They need sunscreen just as much on that 60 degree spring day picnic as they do on that 90 degree day at the beach. Same sun, same need for sunscreen.Banana Boat Dry Balance-2

Banana Boat® is a brand I have always loved and trusted and it is what I reach for to keep my little guys safe in the sun.

Their new Banana Boat® Dry Balance™ sunscreen is my favorite go-to and I keep a few bottles of it on hand so wherever the day takes us, we are protected!  I love that is provides safe and effective broad spectrum UVA and UVB protection. It also dries with a soft matte finish. It feels so nice you’ll want to reapply!

I really like that it is so lightweight, and the non-greasy formula draws away excess moisture while allowing our skin to breathe.

It’s perfect for those hot days when you are cooling off at the pool or beach because it is a water-resistant formula (up to 80 minutes). It’s great for whatever summer plans you have as it stays on in seven conditions – sun, pool water, ocean water, wind, sweat, sand and even 100 degree heat.*  

So whatever fun plans you have, Banana Boat® has you covered! Wherever this summer takes you, make sure to take along Banana Boat® sunscreen and keep your family protected while having lots of fun!
