Things To Bring For A Successful Day Poolside With The Family

Thanks to Rack Room Shoes for sponsoring this post! Please know all opinions are my own and I only share with you what I truly believe in and love! #IAmRackRoom

A lot goes into planning a day out by the pool with your family. I have compiled my top picks for a successful pool day!

We often tend to over pack items we most likely won’t use or forget to pack something practical for a pool day like water friendly items. I was inspired to put together a list of poolside essentials after a day with my family at the local pool. I was surprised how smooth it went on such a hot day, with both kids!

We usually tend to have our hands full with floaties, snacks bags, diaper bag, towels etc. it was a nice change only having to carry our tote and cooler! We arrived just before lunch time, The kids already in their swimsuits and their really comfortable, easy to wear Nike Slides. We actually all wore our Nike Slides to our day by the pool. They were practical and much more comfortable than traditional flip flops. Be sure to take advantage of Rack Room Shoes current sale, $10 off a $65 purchase now through July 4th!

Nike Slides for the family is the perfect on trend footwear choice for a wide range of summer activities besides the pool!

Luckily our local pool offers dressing rooms on site, I was able to change and take a quick dip before lunch time! It felt so nice to sit there wet, cool in the heat and eat my lunch with my family poolside. I can’t stress this enough, bring food, pack your cooler with ice or ice packs and pack a good lunch, it will keep everyone happy I promise you!

I have compiled a list of 10 things I wouldn’t go to the pool without and I hope you find them as helpful as I did!

10 Things To Bring Poolside

  1. Lunch and/or snacks, If its hot out I recommend taking something refreshing like chicken salad, fruits, and anything that is just fresh!
  2. Chilled Refreshments ie. Waters, lemonade etc.
  3. Cooler packed with ice packs or ice to keep everything chilled and fresh!
  4. Sunscreen, for both kids and adults
  5. Extra clothes to change into after so you don’t get into the car wet.
  6. Nike Slides for the family!
  7. Water diapers
  8. Hats for the babies and kids
  9. A big enough tote to carry all your loose items
  10. Towels

Spending half the day poolside is not something that happens often, although I wish it was! We are lucky enough to have a shallow kiddie pool to lounge in and not worry as much. Here in Arizona, the heat is in the hundred and with that, the floor gets so hot! It was nice to be able to leave our Nike Slides nearby and not having to worry about damaging them with all the water.

I really hope you find these tips as helpful as my family did! I would love to hear from all of you on anything I can add to my list! The most important thing about a day poolside with your family is everyone’s safety and all the fun you have and the memories you make while you are all together! Let’s not forget that!

Its safe to say the Garcia’s are slidin’ into summer our favorite Nike Slides, Thanks Rack Room Shoes!
