Our swimwear attire


Every time we go to the beach I usually wear typical swimsuit because it is more comfortable to wear underwater and not too heavy when I swim.  The disadvantage of wearing swimsuit is that the skin will be burned if I swim for hours.  Though I apply sunblock but still I am suffering from sunburn.  Sunburn is really painful especially by back.  This is the reason I decided to buy new swimwear attire when we go to the beach for our summer getaway.  I have seen people wearing rash guard going to beach.  I like it because it surely will protect my skin from sunburn.  I do not need to apply sunblock on my back and arms.

I went to the mall but rash guard is very expensive.  I cannot afford to buy too expensive swimwear attire.  I went to different store looking for affordable rash guard and I am glad I found one.  My sister and I bought two rash guards for ourselves.  See in the image above the rash guards that we bought.  I must say swimming if more fun without worrying for sunburn.  Even if we stayed four hours on the water, it is really okay because our skin is very much protected.

Start listing the things needed for the family summer gate away

As usual, I am in-charge in the upcoming summer gate away of the family.  I have the lists of nice white sand beaches already but haven’t decided where to go yet.  It is really difficult to decide because the kids like to go to the pool and the brothers wants the beach.  Last year, I was lucky to have found the resort that has pool and beach.  We agreed to go to different resort every year, so going back to the resort that we went last year is not a good idea. As far as I could, I want us to explore the nice white sand beaches in the nearby city.  Different beach, environment, view and experience is always the best.

I am in the middle of selecting the beach beach to go to this summer.  I have to be in a hurry because the day of our gate away is fast approaching.  Meanwhile, I am making a list of the things what to bring.  I have to list down carefully because the year I forgot to bring the knife.lol  They are blaming me for it. arghs! I do not want to happen it again, so I am taking extra careful this time.  I asked the help of the sister, so this time, every thing will be taken cared of.  Hopefully when I decided where to go, they will like it.  If they don’t I really don’t care.LOL

Getting ready for the two days at the beach

As planned, the family celebrates the 9th wedding anniversary of the brother and SIL at the beach away from the city.  It is the first time they are going to celebrate it with the whole family and their three kids.  We are so excited as well as the kids.  We are busy packing the things that we needed of two days at the beach.  We have to bring several things especially for the kids.  As usual, I am the one who prepare things for the family and to the check things no make sure all that we needed is there.  Not new to me because I do it every time we do have family bonding outside the house.

The packing and checking of the things to bring are done and we will be going in an hour.  We are just waiting for the sister to arrived from school.  It’s just sad that the brother won’t be joining us because he chooses his girlfriend over us.  We are used to it though, just that we are hoping that he values the family but doesn’t.  Even so, we will make this event a very memorable one and an event to remember by the family.

Itchiness caused by sunburn

Last Sunday, the family went to the beach to unwind and bring the kids there to have fun.  The brother used to bring his kids to the mall to spend time with them.  For a change, he brings the kids to the beach since the kids loves to swim a lot.  I always went with them to unwind as well and never forget to bring the sun block lotion to protect our skin.  I was preparing the things that we needed when I noticed that my sun block lotion is empty.  I am so sad because the weather is so hot and I am pretty sure our skin will get burned. When we reached the beach, the kids go directly to the water without sun block on.  I felt sad looking at them thinking of their skin.  I decided not to go to swim because of the scary heat of the sun.

I was so right because the kids are experiencing sun burned and they are keeping on scratching their skin.  My two years old nephew is crying and always wants us to scratch his skin.  Their skin is so itchy because their skin burns really bad.  I will just bring them to shower when they feel very itchy.
