I was brainstorming some ideas for what to do with the children on the day of the solar eclipse and I came up with the idea of going on a picnic. Now of course, we need to be extra prepared for this picnic, so I looked into solar eclipse eye protection and came across some great options!

One thing that I love to do is research! When I am going to purchase a new product, I enjoy researching all of my options! This inate need to research all possibilities drives my husband nuts, however most of the time, I do think it’s to his benefit! It means that when I make a purchase, I am not purchasing on a whim. I take the time to figure out my exact need, analyze in order of importance, investigate options, weigh pros and cons and then purchase.

Why am I talking about my love for researching prior to purchasing a product? Because lately I’ve been considering buying a beach blanket for our family.

When my kids were younger, we had this adorable Melissa and Doug picnic set. If you have little ones, it is a great toy to bring along on a picnic so that they have something to occupy them WHILE you are sitting on your blanket and therefore they will be SITTING and not running off!
