Thanks Huggies for sponsoring this post! All opinions are my own – as they always are. 😉 #HuggiesMomStyle
It seems like I haven’t been on here in forever when in reality it’s only been a few short days! If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter you’ve had a sneak peak on how our 4th of July weekend went, but right now I’m slowly working my way through all of the photos I’ve taken and will be sharing my favorite moments with you. We camped at my friend’s property for three nights – she lives right on the Alsea river, and it’s only about a 15 minute drive to the beach from her place, so of course we had to drive over and spend the afternoon on the Oregon coast! We went as a big group so the kids could all play together and the weather was so beautiful we ended up staying for over three hours just let them explore the sand. We brought snacks as well as the new Huggies Clutch ‘N’ Clean Wipes to clean the kids as well as minimize the sand that was consumed while eating their snacks. I love the new packaging for the wipes because they are so handy to have on the go, and the designs make them easy to spot, plus they have a grab handle too which came in pretty handy. Even my husband was impressed with the design and suggested we keep a couple in the car – which of course I had already done. 😉
Another thing that I love is that I can just refill the Clutch ‘N’ Clean Wipes with any Huggies baby wipes, and they seal up great! Even now that my kids are older and not in diapers, I still use wipes on a regular basis and honestly can’t imagine not having them around again. With that being said, I do love that these don’t necessarily have that I’m-going-to-go-change-a-stinky-diaper-now look to them, and I can use them for so many different things!
The kids had so much fun on the beach for the 4th of July, making new friends and getting better acquainted with others. There is something so magical about the sand that just sparks the little ones imaginations and creativity. I honestly can’t imagine living more than a couple hours away from the beach. Even though we don’t make the trip out here as often as we’d like, it’s still a wonderful option that I wouldn’t want to live without.
These are some of my favorite photos so far this year, and I can’t wait to share the rest of our camping trip with you! The Huggies Clutch ‘N’ Clean also came in super handy while we were outdoors, and I just threw a couple in our bags for wiping things (and faces) down – especially after eating smores! You just gotta love camping.
