Warm Weather Tips & Gear

Check Your Hiking Backpack

We have always loved going on hiking adventures with the kids. We’ve explored waterfalls, overlooks, state and national parks, and trails all across the United States. There are certain things we always make sure we have on our person before we hit the trails.

  • Bug spray
  • Hats
  • Water bottles
  • Backpack
  • Basic First Aid Kit

Upgrade your Sunscreen

If you are like most moms’ you probably have a stash of bug spray and sunscreen stored back a cabinet. Now is the perfect time to check the bottles, sprays and cans for expiration dates. Do you have everything you need to get the season started?

Just because you’ve always used the standard brands from your local drugstore doesn’t mean you can’t up your game.

Stay Cool in the Heat

A few summers ago we spent some time in Paulden, Arizona at an outdoor training school. To say it was hot is a definite understatement. On the first day, I was struggling to keep up in the heat and another student gave me a cooling hat. That opened up a whole world of options that help us stay more comfortable when we are out on adventures in the heat. Now we make sure that we all have cooling hats and scarves for all the family.

  • Buy cooling hats or towels that help protect your body from the heat.
