I'll take any excuse (and I mean ANY) to head to the beach. And it just so happens that my mini is obsessed, so it's a complete win/win. Which also means the back of my vehicle has a beach bag, towels, blankets, buckets, sunhats, floats, and all sorts of essentials in it full time. So, sorry family, no room for groceries. Seriously. With that said, here are THE beach day essentials for fun in the sun.
