Friday Favorites – Lake Trip Must Haves



Happy Friday!!  Today we are enjoying some family time in Washington DC but I wanted to share my Lake Trip Must Haves!!  Since we just got back from a trip to the lake and we have several lake trips planned this summer I have been looking for items that we need to add to our packing list.


This past weekend our friends had this cooler.  We had one for drinks and one for food.  It is the perfect size and kept everything cold!  The best part is that you can find it at Wal-Mart and it is not super expensive.

I am not a beer drinker and I wanted to enjoy a cold beverage that was not full of calories while we were on the lake.  I bought the White Claw Hard Seltzer drink and all three flavors were great!  The best part is one can is only 110 calories!

I have been looking for a Bluetooth speaker that is waterproof so that we can use it at home and also at the lake. This speaker had amazing reviews on Amazon and it is the perfect travel size.

I definitely think beach chairs are a must have so that you can soak your feet in the water and not have to sit in the sand.

TOYS!!! Toys keep the kids busy while you are hanging out on the shore.  Our girls love to build sand castles.

And don’t forget your favorite snacks.  Snyder’s Pretzels are my favorite snack to take when we go to the lake.


We are now off for a full day of museums in DC. I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  1. I just saw that cooler on my way out of WalMart the other day and thought it looked so cool…hahaha cool! I crack myself up. We lived in Richmond, VA until 7 years ago and loved being able to pop up to DC and spend a day. It was an incredible to place to raise our kids and be able to take them and show them so many great things. Have a wonderful time. Hope the weather is holding out for y’all!

  2. I’m interested in that cooler and now I think I need to go back to Walmart. You cannot beat the Ozark Trail merchandise! I will never buy Yeti. Yes, gotta get the beach chairs because I say every year I’m going to get them and do not. Also….thanks for the tip on the bluetooth because I’m in the market for a new one. I hope you guys have a GREAT time in DC – you’re only 5.5 hours from me….just saying!!! XOXO

  3. Have fun in DC! I love White Claws, I like adding a little squirt of lime juice to them too, but they are all really yummy and I like how low cal they are. Great list of favorites. Enjoy DC!

  4. I need new chairs for the beach….I’ve been looking for some with decent reviews and also a decent price!
