For those of you who have been following my blog for a while, you know I LOVE going on vacation. And more specifically, I love going to the beach in Florida. I grew up going to my Nana and Papa’s condo near Indian Rocks Beach FL, which eventually became my parent’s condo, and now the family owns a new condo in the same complex.
Most of the trips that I have been on to the beach and to our condo was with my grandparents, parents, and even my mother-in-law. Over the past two years, Emma, my toddler, has been on 14 flights with me to and from the condo, and thoroughly enjoys being in the pool, on the beach, and at the big park next to the condo.
On every trip that included my Nana, mom, or mother-in-law, I heard the same pieces of advice when we were headed to the beach — 1) Wear sunscreen, and 2) Stay hydrated. I would always reluctantly grab a water bottle and put on sunscreen (in spite of the fact that as a teen, all I wanted to accomplish on vacation was to get a tan). And now that I’m a mom, I’m telling my toddler the exact same thing. We keep sunblock in my car, purse, beach bag, stroller, and always have a water bottle and/or sippy cup. In fact, we have been going on walks to try to get baby boy into position and induce labor naturally, and I don’t go too far without taking a swig of water and giving Emma a swig as well.
Nestlé® Pure Life® Purified Water is on a mission to help families everywhere enjoy healthy, feel-good lifestyles and encourage them to join the Hydration Movement and drink more water. Hydrating is so important. I routinely take water breaks with my gym clients to be sure they are staying hydrated and I encourage them to drink at least 8 glasses of water every day.
