Our Summer Journey With Safety 1st!!! #OurSummerJourney

Living in the beautiful Catskill Mountains of Upstate New York is like being on a great vacation all summer.  We live on a lake, and people who live here relish when they can spend a week or two vacation at the lake.  We are so blessed that we live here and get to play here every day!!!

This is what it's like living on a lake in the summer!!! Out with the kids on the Walk On Water Mat and being circled by my cousin and neighbors.  #OurSummerJourney

Besides the lake there is so much to do and we recently took a few day trips that were so much fun!  We went to the Wayne County Fair in nearby Pennsylvania, we gathered rocks as we spent some time on the Delaware River that we will use for a rock painting and landscaping project, we went blueberry picking and made a scrumptious blueberry pound cake.

Spending some time on the Delaware River-Day Trippin’ and #OurSummerJourney with Safety 1st!!!

 

When we take day trips we are gone all day and the kids like to sleep on the way there and usually fall asleep for the night on the way home.  It is important to me that they are comfortable and safe in the car.  That’s why we love Safety 1st car seats.  The  Advance SE 65 Air+ Convertible Car Seat is safe and super comfy for Luke and he sleeps like a baby in it!  It has a nice big cup holder and it’s a super safe seat that is reinforced with steel.  The Air Protect® advanced cushion system protects his head, where it’s needed most and the GCell HX™ patented foam with hexagonal shapes inside the seat provides superior body protection.  The seat provides full body side impact protection and that gives parents peace of mind!  This seat as well as the new one for Ethan that is just a bit delayed surely make #OurSummerJourney day trips much easier!

#OurSummerJourney-Safety 1st-- Advance 65 Air+ Convertible Car Seat features Air Protect + to keep children from 5-65 pounds safer in the car.

We took a great day trip to the Wayne County Fair in Pennsylvania and the kids had an awesome time.  There was a big Monster Truck show and so between the rides, animals, show, food, exhibits and more it was very late when we were driving home.  It is nice that a seat so safe is so comfortable!

Beach Rays Swimsuits Review and Giveaway!!!

BEACH_RAYS_LOGO

Beach Rays had us pick out some suits for review.  I chose the Emmet in a size 7 and the Eisley in a size 4T.  When we got them they were both huge in the waist on both boys.  However the Emmet was able to be cinched in tight with the drawstring waist, the Eisley was not.  It really seemed off to me that the Eisley would not have a true drawstring waist, no matter what we did they were falling off my four year old.  We had to try some safety pins but they were so huge it really was noticeable.

There was nothing we could do besides have them altered and there was not time to do that, so we just tried our best.  I had to reject many pics because the trunks were completely falling down. I am going to contact the company and will update to see if we perhaps got a fluke pair.  I mean my kids are slim but this was tremendously huge for a 4T.  Anyway what I can say for the Eisley is that I loved the pattern and material.  I truly wish they would have it in the bigger size because I like it so much.  The Emmet was very large but could be cinched so that they were wearable.  The Emmet was a fun pattern too and the material very soft and comfortable made of 100% Poly Micro Fiber.

Update: The company is sending us a new swimsuit as they say that must have been a defect with the Eisley and as soon as we get it I will update the review with the results.  

Update #2 We were sent the new trunks in the Ethan pattern in a size 4T and the trunks fit fine, had the fully adjustable drawstring waist and proved the Eisley defective pair we did receive was just a fluke.  The trunks stayed on so well you can see they even stayed on when Luke went on the trampoline.  Great customer service and I would recommend the suits highly.
