There’s one thing that is common when people are vacationing, at the beach especially, I think. They like to snack. I’ve noticed more folks going for the chips and the sugary drinks for their kids. Haven’t seen any families snacking on celery sticks. And, that reminds me, we have celery in our little refrigerator, so we’ll have some later today. Vacations seem to be a time of indulging, or at least enjoying the things you don’t always get to eat at home. With younger kids, especially here at the beach, it’s important to drink lots of water—or at least some type of liquid. Along with the hot sun and temps on the beach, and jumping in and out of pools or ocean, you will not just be thirsty but you can easily get dehydrated you if you’re not careful. Happened to notice a mother and her younger son enjoying a snow cone by the pool yesterday. That would provide needed liquid quenching the body’s thirst but not sure the sugar added would be good. We don’t care for what Charlene calls ‘beachy’ water so we picked up 2 gallons of spring water at the local grocery store, and that’s what we’ve been drinking.
