We’ve just returned from an amazing week at the beach in Destin, Florida. It was Gordon’s first visit to the ocean. He loved it, of course, just like his mama. We did notice that as the week went on, we acquired more and more gear. Amongst all the nonsense purchases like boogie boards, shovels, and fish nets, we bought one item that we absolutely love. Check it out…This Coleman Instant RoadTrip Beach Shade was brilliant. It was crazy-easy to assemble, packed up in a small portable case, kept the kids out of the sun and MOST IMPORTANTLY, kept Gordon from crawling off the blanket to chow down on fists of sand. We couldn’t stop complimenting ourselves on our wise purchase. We even had it shipped overnight to the cottage for $4 on Amazon Prime. Love it. This was awesome for the beach but we are also looking forward to using it throughout the year for parties, sport outing obligation type things and concerts we’ll never go to. LOVE THIS THING!
