Summer Grab & Go Bags! Are you ready?

Are you enjoying the 31 days of Summer Fun? There are so many great activities! Today I am sharing my  Summer Grab and Go Bags! This is my way to be a little more organized this summer and have fun with my kids without all the stress! I only get 18 summers with them.  I so I need to make them count. So I introduce to your my Summer Grab and Go Bags!
Are you ready for summer?  My kids have 2 weeks left of school.  With summer getting ready to make its entrance I am trying to get prepared and ready.  No sitting around the house for my kiddos. (Okay so we may have a few lazy days this summer, that's what it's for right?) I like to think I am organized.  In reality I am organized in some things and not others.  When it comes to preparedness I am pretty good. So this summer I am going to be ready to go on a whim.  

We frequently get calls from friends to go do fun things in the summer. The conversations usually go like this.
 (Her) "Hey we are going to the lake, want to come?
(Me)Sure, when you leaving?  
 (Her)In 20 minutes...... 
(Me) Ummmm Okay.....
 (I say this while still sitting in my PJ's or work out clothes.)  

So what do you do?  For me it's a chance to get out of the house and unplugged for the day.  You have to take the opportunity, right?  So here is what I do!
Have a Grab & Go bag!  I have one for the Lake/ beach and one for the park. 
Want to see what I put in my bags?  Well today is your lucky day! Here we go!
Swim Bag-

TJ Maxx Bag, Swim suits, towels, sunscreen, water bottles, snacks, pocket first aid kit, baby powder (to remove sand from feet), sand toys, toiletries, diapers, wipes, swim diapers all wrapped up and tucked in a bag. I also include a plastic grocery sack in my bag for garbage. 
You may need to add a few things to yours.  I try to keep my kids goggles and cover up as well. 
Park bag-

sunscreen, first aid kit, water bottles, snacks, Frisbee or ball, sand toy, blanket and a plastic bag for garbage.
You may have a few more items you need or don't need from my list.  I add 2 diapers and a small bag of wipes for my baby. 

Summer Fun Bucket- 
Any outside toys your kids would love that are age appropriate. I like to give them to my kids on there last day of school. Here are a few my kids love.
Frisbee, football, round ball, bubbles, bug catchers, chalk, sunglasses, hat, water bottle, sand toys, water toys, squirt gun, water balloons, sponge water balls
