I need to remember to pack a small bag with a large blanket and a water bottle, oh, and bug spray!
For watching fireworks, sitting at the park listening to music, or bringing the kids to the beach.
It sounds so simple…..
But I always forget!!
I have done this for our swim bag. A swimsuit for each of us with all goggles, footwear, sunscreen and towels. Why can I never remember to put this other one together?!? Do you know what I think? It was easy for our swim stuff. I bought this over-sized bag that screamed (I resisted putting that in all caps – you’re welcome) screamed beach bag. It fits everything we need.
But I have no…. no bag that says “Lay around on the grass on this blanket” Bag. Really – that is the best I could come up with (I’ll apologize now and work on it later.)
It would have to be large enough for a large blanket or mat or something…
and here is where all the questions start for me:
A blanket? It does no good if the grass is damp. So do I look for a fold out mat that fits a family of 5? Do they even exist? Bah!!! This is why there is no packed bag!
Do you have an answer to this? Comment below! If I find an answer I will post here!!
