Living in Michigan, I grew up around water. There are lakes all over the place in my home state, so spending time near the water is something my family and I enjoy. My parents have a house on a lake and we always spend time there during long summer weekends or holidays. It's so much fun to go swimming, jet skiing, boating and to just watch the waves crash into the shore. If the weather is nice, you can usually find us down by the water having some fun in the sun.
Since we spend so much time by the lake, I thought I'd write a blog post that rounds up my must haves for a day at the lake. Read on to see what I recommend to have on hand when you're by the water.
Water and Snacks
It’s always smart to stay hydrated while enjoying time in the sun. Packing a cooler full of water bottles and snacks will ensure that everyone has something to sip and snack on while spending time by the water. Some of my favorite snacks to pack when I’m spending time by the lake are trail mix, chips and dip (or salsa), fruits and veggies.
When my family and I are spending time by the lake, we can never have enough towels on hand. We get in and out of the water to cool off on hot days so we’re constantly drying off with towels and laying them over our chairs so we can sit down. I’m a big fan of XL towels since I can wrap them around my whole body and dry off quickly.
Wearing SPF while out by the lake is super important. I’m a big advocate for protecting your skin from the sun’s harmful rays, so I always make sure to apply sunscreen on my face while I’m getting ready each day. When I know that I’ll be spending time out by the water, I apply sunscreen 15 minutes before going outside and I continually reapply it throughout the day. I typically wear SPF 30, so that’s what I reach for in my beach bag.
So, there you have it! Those are my main staples for the lake.
