Summer Bucket List::Build a Sand Castle

This past winter was miserable. We were snowed in for one week, so one of my most important items on the summer bucket list was the beach. Asher was also very excited about the beach. He made up a chant for the drive down. However, as soon as we got to the beach, he started crying. He hated it. He told us he wanted to leave right away. We were shocked. We traveled for two days to get there.  He made up a chant for heaven’s sake. After a day, we realized the problem. He hates being hot. Hates it. Read: zero tolerance for it. We learned that if we want him to have fun at the beach, he can not wear his cute swim trunks, rash guard, or baseball hat. He pretty much has to be as close to naked as possible. Needless to say, this will not be a post about his adorable Mini Rodini swimsuit. But don’t worry, I provided you with a link to the fabulous swim diapers at the end of the blog.  Here are some pictures of our trips to the beach.

Asher’s Swim Diapers: Target

Styled Three Ways: Stars and Stripes Blumes by Tippi

These shorts scream 4th of July. As soon as I saw them, I could not wait to come up with an outfit for Asher. When I found the super soft tank from Riley Clay Designs, I knew it was a match made in styling heaven. Check it out.

Asher’s Outfit:

Hat: Tiny Whales

Shirt: Riley Clay Designs

Shorts: Tippi (Sold Out)

Shoes: Saltwater Sandals

Styled Three Ways: Stars & Stripes Blumes by Tippi

I love everything Americana. I love the crisp red, white, and blue colors together. So when Tippi asked me to style their Stars & Stripes Blumes, I was ecstatic. These shorts are very light weight and comfy. The are also very well sewn. Since I am using them on my son, I decided to size up. Asher is wearing a size 5 in all of these photos. Here is the first way I styled it.

Rachel and Groms :: Brand Love

From the moment I saw the Rachel and Groms’  Geo Star Gaze Romper, I loved it. I have previously told you how into celestial things Asher is right now. So after a couple of tries, I was able to snag one of these up. It was worth it. The romper is incredibly soft, like I’m gonna make a pillow out of it when he out grows it soft. It is also very light weight. This is extremely important in a muggy STL summer. Here are some pictures of how I styled the romper.

Summer Bucket List :: Zoo

One of the most important items on our summer bucket list for Asher is the zoo. He wanted to go there the second I read it off the list. Yesterday, we obliged him. It was the perfect day for it. 75 degress is unheard of in June, so we made a day of it.

Summer Bucketlist

Last year, I was inspired by another blogger’s summer bucket list. I loved the idea of creating a list of exciting things to look forward to in the summer. Plus, I really love making lists on paper. So here is our summer bucket list. If you have any suggestions, comment below! I would love to hear them.
