Our Outdoor Summer Family Adventures!


Hey All!

Summer is the time of year where I get ready for some memorable family adventures. It’s the season of fun in the sun so of course we want to get outside and enjoy it. We live in sunny Southern California, so we’re blessed to have sun a good part of the year, but with the summer comes beach, theme park, picnic, and BBQ season as well! Thankfully we’re always ready for those pesky summer sun rays with our Banana Boat® sunscreen. I always make sure we wear sunscreen whenever we’re going to be outside for long periods of time in the sun.

For example we love to picnic in the summer! Love in an understatement. I love to put full on themed picnics for me and my family. I’ll decorate the picnic table and I’ll make themed snacks to match the theme of our picnic. We’ll sit there for hours on a sunny day and enjoy all the tasty treats I create for our picnics. We do get a lot of sun since we’re sitting there out in the open sun for a good amount of time.


Ok…sometimes the picnics turn into chasing kids around the park who are running around the park with their shirts off and climbing trees. Either way it’s always a fun adventure when we head out to have some family fun in the sun. We never know what the day has in store for us. All we know is we’re heading out on a beautiful summer day to spend some time outside enjoying the warm weather.


Regardless of where we are having our fun, Banana Boat® sunscreen is a must have. Banana Boat® sun care products are tested in seven conditions – sun, pool water, ocean water, wind, sweat, sand and extreme heat – to provide safe and effective broad spectrum UVA and UVB protection for the entire family.* I am just learning that sun protection requires 1 oz. every 2 hours to ensure family fun in all 7 conditions. Moms know how important it is to make sun protection a priority. Sunscreen does more than protect against sunburns, it protects against long-term effects that are not always visible, like skin damage and skin cancer. My family and I are all very pale in skin which means we can burn quickly if we’re not careful. Hello! Check out those white legs of mine! I tend to use the SPF 30 so I can still keep my skin safe while getting some sun, while the family uses the SPF 50+. I love laying out in the sun at the park or at the beach, but I always make sure to put sunscreen on to protect my skin.


Whatever sun scene you and your family choose, Banana Boat® has you covered!


I always make sure it’s packed in our fun in the sun adventure bag.


When you’re having your own family fun in the sun adventure be sure to apply 1 ounce (2 tablespoons) of sunscreen to you and your kids’ entire bodies 30 minutes before going outside and reapply every two hours or immediately after swimming or excessive sweating.
