We had the best time visiting Dana and Jake last weekend in Charleston! It was great to catch up, explore their beautiful city, and relax on the beach. Beach vacations look a little different now with a full blown toddler. It’s a lot more action and a little less relaxation. But, the essentials don’t change much. We are heading to VA for a couple weeks to visit my parents, and here’s what I’m packing for my beach day essentials.
