Summer Ready Swimsuits!

I have got my mind on summer, and summer on my mind. 🏖 Anyone else?!?

We’ve been starting to plan a summer trip, which made me immediately want to start shopping. 😉 Just a few years ago I would dread buying or WEARING a swimsuit. Nothing about it was enjoyable to me. Fast forward to now, and 28 year old me has embraced my body just the way it is and I want ALL the suits! 🙌🏻🙌🏻

Below are some of my favorite swim finds! Lots of affordable options because if you’re like me, you can’t have just one!

Kids swimsuits are actually one of my most favorite things to buy. Each of my littles has multiple, and they all get plenty of use in the summertime! Below are some of my favorites this season, including some that are perfect for sibling matching for SwimZip! There sun protection is next to none.

So many cute options! Which is your favorite?

Gut Connection Kids- Supplements for Littles.

Any other moms feel like they’re always searching for the best products for their little ones?

As my kids get older finding good supplements has become increasingly important. The more time I spent researching, the more I realized how hard it is to find good affordable ones!

When we had the chance to try Gut Connection Life by Country Kids, I was pleasantly surprised by the variety of products and the price! We have tried all four options- Cognitive Balance. Digestive Balance, Immune Balance, and Sleep Balance. Their company believes in raising the bar in integrity and authenticity, which just made me like them more!

I received this product for free from Moms Meet (momsmeet.com) to use and post my honest opinions. Compensation for this post was provided and this page may contain affiliate links.

The #1 favorite here is the Sleep Balance! It is a chocolate flavored powder, and we love to mix it up in a healthy smoothie one hour before bed. My kids can always use all the help they can get in the sleep department, and this powder provides us a healthy way to help ease them into bedtime! Along with a seamless combination of helpful gut-focused ingredients, each serving contains Lactium, a patented bioactive peptide coming from milk, used widely in Europe to reduce stress so that kids can fall asleep faster and longer.

#2 on the favorites list is the Cognitive Balance! It has a powerful probiotic blend to maintain gut health and support communication between the central nervous and digestive systems. With school in full swing, both Mason and Maddison love knowing their fueling their bodies with some extra help! These chewables are also taste approved by them, which isn’t always an easy task.

Immune Balance is a big winner for this mama, especially this time of year! It is a blend of prebiotics balanced with other immune-supporting ingredients to support a strong and healthy immune system and improve gut microbiome health.

Last but most certainly not least is the Digestive Balance! The focus for this one is to provide kids with the nutrients they need to maintain good immune and gut health, help reduce occasional discomfort/bloating, and even improve weekly bowel movements.

These products are intended for children aged 4-12. However, adults can also take this product by following the directions for the 9-12 year old dosage.

All products are available for purchase on countrylifevitamins.com, and you can get 20% off of your entire order with the code MOMS20 at checkout!

So, out of the 4 products, which intrigues you the most?!

Adventure Family Truth Bomb

A split second from our last adventure that looks like we kind of have our crap together.

Spoiler alert- we do not. 🥴

This fishing trip was short lived and involved some tears, the phrase “use your walking feet” played on repeat, and many tangled fishing lines.

I will never claim our outings run seamlessly, because we have three kids and that’s just not a thing. 😂

We have so many “next time we should…” moments, but we’ve also found so many things that work for us.
The chaos comes with the territory, and doesn’t stop us from adventuring.

Do you have any tried and true tips for outdoor adventures with kids? I always love hearing what works for other people!

They Call Me Mama.

No one can prepare you for the high volumes of love that fill your heart when you become a mother, just like no one can prepare you for how hard it can be.

Its only fitting that the thing that brings us the most joy also tests our sanity and patience.

We learn to soak up the small moments, take all the pictures, and the power of a few deep breaths.

We learn that there is no such thing as a perfect mom. That there are different ways to parent and it’s OKAY.

There are hard days. Days where we don’t feel like we can keep giving it all, but somehow we do.

It isn’t easy to see the beauty when you’re in the thick of it all, but these are the days we will one day look back on and wish we could go back and slow time down a bit.

Motherhood is messy, chaotic, wonderfully beautiful, and unlike anything else.

I’m incredibly blessed to have these three precious souls call me mama.

Happy Mother’s Day to all of you wonderful mamas out there. 🤍
