Let's Go Play at the Park!
Besides the obvious sunscreen and snacks and drinks, here are my favorite tips for a day at the river, with links to some previous posts --
I bring a fluffy utility quilt with thick polyester batting to spread over the rocks for a more comfortable place it sit. We bought this one at a yard sale for a buck.
I bring pool noodles and toys with our names on them, because sometimes things drift downstream a bit and need to be identified.
I make sure my phone has a full charge on it so that I can read my book while the kids play and so that my buddy can call if she sees my van parked up on the road and wants to know how much longer we'll be down there. (I've never had an emergency while we're down there, but I also want the phone just in case I do need to get help in a hurry.)
And I bring my floppy hat so I can keep from burning my ears and nose.
What are your tips for a great day at the park with the kids?
