Family Fun in the Sun

This is a compensated campaign in collaboration with LUBRIDERM and Latina Bloggers Connect. I was compensated for this post, but all opinions are my own.

I've never really been an outdoorsy type of girl. Let's face it, I was born and raised in Miami, so the extent of my outdoor experience pretty much began and ended at the beach. Since moving to Hawaii though, I've been attempting to embrace the miniscule sliver of Davy Crockett in me. You might be surprised to know that there is much more to do here aside from lounging at the beach with a fruity drink. 

Since Hawaiian weather is relativity close to impeccable year-round, our family would be foolish not to take advantage of the opportunity to spend as much time outside as possible. Polar vortex, what? And who knows, the Army could send us to somewhere close to Canada after this. While here, we've taken advantage of the hiking opportunities. Thanks to friend getting a Kayak, that's been mentioned a few times as well. I would really love to learn to stand-up paddleboard though!

Although there is a ton to do around the island, I've also embraced being able to do outdoor activities with the girls in our own neighborhood. We have a decent-sized back yard (by Hawaii standards), which makes it easy to get outside while Hubster is at work and not able to help with the munchkins. Even though Hawaii isn't even close, some days, it feels like we're sitting on the equator. For that reason, it's important that our family, especially the girls, have some sort of sun protection every time we go outside. With essential moisturizing ingredients, Lubriderm Daily Moisture with SPF 15 Lotion provides a powerful two-in-one moisturizer that provides broad spectrum UVA and UVB protection. Not only does it keep our skin protected, it helps maintain healthy hydrated skin, even in the sun.
So far, it’s been really nice to be able to spend a bunch of time outside with the girls. For a while, we were just sitting around the house all day not doing too much. I’m confident that although they might not remember everything about living in Hawaii, they will be able to remember some of the fun outdoor memories that we made together. They enjoy everything from walking to the mailbox or taking the dog on a walk, to splashing around in our kiddie pool and racing down the slide.
At the end of the day, one of everybody’s favorite activities is a hot bath or shower. It’s especially relaxing if we spent the day doing a physically demanding activity such as hiking. Lubriderm’s Daily Moisture Shea + Calming Lavender Jasmine Lotion’s soothing fragrance is the perfect way to wind down while also moisturizing your skin for a clinically proven 24 hours. With a clean and non-greasy feel, the light formula contains a calming lavender and jasmine fragrance that leaves skin feeling clean and non-greasy. There’s nothing like snuggling up with my clean little munchkins just before bed and smelling the light scent of lavender on them. 

Love, Alex
