Summer is all about getting out there and having fun! You only get 18 summers before the kids are off to college and on their own, so I need to create as many memories as I can now while their still mine! And I don’t just want to create those memories, but I want to capture them so I can look back and them when they’re grown.
During the summer, which weather-wise has already started here in Maryland, there are some items that are necessary to keep in our diaper bag. With our MOMS Club, we have play dates several times a week at a park, zoo or someone’s house. I don’t want to worry about packing what all I might need, so I try to just keep it in the diaper bag so we’re prepared for summer fun whenever it strikes.
Some of the things we carry in our bag:
Okie-Dog Diaper Bag // swim clothes // swim diaper // wipes // diapers // bug spray // sun screen // mobile charger // Walmart Family Mobile smartphone // picnic blanket // first aid kit // empty sippy cup // some snacks // wet bag
While it may seem odd to carry swim clothes in the diaper bag, many of our mommy friends have pools or sprinklers for the kids to play in. I wouldn’t want to miss out on that fun because I wasn’t prepared for spontaneous water play!
I remembered to bring my actual camera when we went to the pool earlier this week, but…. forgot to put the memory card back in it, so it was of no use! That’s why I love having a phone that I can rely on to take great pictures when I need them!
With my Walmart Family Mobile Samsung Avant, I’m able to capture all the crazy memories we’re making and share them with everyone. My grandparents and sister live 10 hours away in Kentucky, so sharing pictures with them on Facebook or in text messages is how they keep up with us. If they only saw the boys every 6 months when they’re up here, they’d miss out on so much.
I’m lucky that I’m able to stay at home and experience all these memories as they happen, but Daddy’s not so lucky. We like taking pictures throughout the day to show to Daddy when he gets home and sometimes we’ll send him a few at work, but we know he’s busy.
Being able to have an affordable phone plan makes this even easier. Walmart Family Mobile is only $29.88/month for the first line with Unlimited Talk, Text & Data service plan which includes up to 1G of 4G LTE data. There is no contract and you can up your data if you need to (still not breaking the bank). Disclaimer: All prices for phones and plans included in this post are accurate as of the date of posting; however, these prices are subject to change. Please refer to http://cbi.as/8e03 or your local Walmart for current pricing.
You can find the Walmart Family Mobile section in the Electronics Department. It’s bright Walmart blue, so you can’t miss it! Find yourself a 4G LTE compatible phone, I picked the Samsung Avant. If you’re new to the Walmart Family Mobile plans, you’ll need to purchase a starter kit for $25. Once you’re on the plan, you won’t need to purchase this again. Unlike other no-contract plans, Walmart Family Mobile plans are a post-paid plan, meaning you pay for your service at the end of each month instead of paying up front.
