It’s that time. The weather is warming up, the beach is calling and the community pools are opening. My kids spent the last seven months staring wistfully at our pool knowing it was way too cold to enjoy. Now they run to the gate excited every afternoon to get jump in. When we bought a house with a pool, I pictured casual afternoons spent by the pool watching my happy children swim. I didn’t think about all the things they would need to make that happen. Over the years I’ve gotten it down to a pretty good system, but if this is your first (or second, or seventh) summer spent at the beach of the pool and you feel like you still don’t have it all down yet, don’t worry. The Salty Mamas have got you – and your kids – covered with these must haves for a day at the pool!
