My Summer Wishlist

Happy first day of Summer!! It's summer time and I want new stuffs! No seriously, here are a few things that I have been eyeing and this season is the perfect time to pick them up. Check out what's on my summer wish list.

1. Beach Tent - I don't have any beach vacations planned for the summer but I do plan on taking a few trips to some local beaches. I love a good tan, but being in the sun all day can be exhausting. This beach tent should give Ava and I enough shade to not get burnt out so quickly and make the most of our day.

2. Clear Spray Sunscreen - Alba Botanica has a clear spray sunscreen that I would like to try. The Alba Botanica brand is vegan and cruelty free as are all of the cosmetics that we use.

5. Straw Bag - I am most certainly buying this amazing bag!

If I could only pick one item from this list to buy, it would definitely be the bag. What are you moms eyeing for the summer time? Leave a comment below! Until next time.

One Hot Summer Day is a favorite of ours and is a fun book about a little girl attempting to play outside in the uncomfortable summer heat.  I love that this book is illustrated with photographs.

1. One Hot Summer Day by Nina Crews 2.  Summer by Nicola Baxter
3. Summer by Ann Herriges  4. And Then Comes Summer by Tom Brenner

 5. Summer is Here by Heidi Pross Gray
6. Summer Days and Nights by Wong Herbert Yee
7. The Night Before Summer Vacation by Natasha Wing
8. The Last Day of Kindergarten by Nancy Loewen

9. Aqualicious by Victoria Kann
10. Pete At The Beach by James Dean
11. Summer Color by Diana Murray

We have a daily goal of reading at least 5 books a day. Sometimes it's the same book over and over but mostly we read different books all day. Having this daily goal is beneficial to Ava's learning and she really enjoys reading.
