My Little Miss who is nearly two just loves going to the beach! It was a lovely warm 35 degree day and my husband was home so we figured it was a great day to go down to the beach. Got Little Miss ready with sunscreen, hat and rashie! Hubby and I got our boardies and rashies on too and sunscreen on our face and arms. Off we went – happy day full of fun and laughter and splashing. Then tired unhappy Little Miss changed into dry clothes and back in the car. She dozed off to sleep and back home we went. Later in the evening my husband and I both noted that we had red sunburnt feet. It has been so sore for the last two days and I also got burnt on the back of my legs at the knee! Little Miss was sunburn free – all our fussing over making sure she didn’t get sunburnt… but instead we did!

  • took weeks for that sunburn to heal – next beach visit we were all lathered in sunscreen and reapplied regularly! lesson learned :)

  • Goes to show how hot the planet is becoming. 70 Plus will be a thing of the future soon.

  • You need to watch your feet. A poor little one in our local area got burns on her feet from the soft matting at the play ground at the park. It was that hot it had started to melt and her feet stuck to it. So be careful where your kids are playing. You think they are safe but you just never know these days. (Matting must have had a fault).
