Summertime at Innsbrook is the best. It includes family and tons of outdoor time. What could be better? Some photos from our trip last weekend:
It was William’s first time on a boat. He was so ready for it!
The beautiful lake on a gorgeous day.
We had the cutest drivers and best looking crew.
Steph and I with our babies.
Audrey has to be touching William AT ALL TIMES.
But if you’re going to spend a day in the sun, you obviously need proper protection.
my attempt at posing with the sunscreen. errr……
Block Island Organics recently sent me a bottle of their sunscreen to review. This was the perfect weekend to try it out. I’ve been hesitant to wear sunscreen this summer because whatever I wore would most likely get on William and I didn’t want that to include chemicals. So I’ve pretty much stayed out of the sun to avoid needing sunscreen. However, Block Island Organics is different.
Their philosophy is to actively enjoy the outdoors with the motto “Play Smart. Play Safe. Non-Toxic Suncare.” As such, they strive to make safe, effective and lovable suncare products. Their sunscreens are non-toxic mineral based (zinc and titanium), as opposed to chemical based. Their products are non-comedogenic, vegan formulated, paraben free, phthalate free, nano particle free, artificial fragrance free, non-eye irritating, not tested on animals, made in the USA and highly rated by the Environmental Working Group. They even have a Baby SPF 30 which will come in handy once William is in the sun more.
Since I lathered my arms and chest in this, it obviously touched William’s skin, but I felt ok about it. This sunscreen is a bit pricier than other brands, but you have to consider what it is (really, what itz not! Chemicals!). For one week, Block Island Organics is offering readers a 20% discount code valid from August 1-7, 2014. Get it while itz hot! (Get it? Ha.)
A weekend at Innsbrook is not complete without cousins and a campfire.
And roasting marshmallows, ooooobviously.
My dad and Jonny (aka pyros) got the fire going once again in the morning.
Lots of babywearing happened, too. Actually, it happened most when my family went out on the boat for the first time. Rain was in the forecast and I didn’t want to get caught on the lake in the rain with William, so we stayed back. While babywearing him, I decided to do a little workout and walked up and down the stairs 30 times. Fit momma for the win!
What does summertime look like for you?
