…or the pool, the lake, the swimming hole, the creek, the river, the inflatable kiddie pool in your yard — whatever body of water by which you like to spend your summer! I realized this week that Memorial Day is almost here and thus we’re all about to head outside to get some sun. And you might need gear (beyond these cute tote bags I recently rounded up)! Check out these potential must-haves, and also please comment and let us know what item has made your past summers more fun, or easier!
