Remember that inflatable chair you won at Discovery Zone in 4th grade? You spent two weeks blowing it up and were left with nothing but a light head and sticky plastic. Pool floaties, however, are always fun, no matter what size or shape.
Basketball means skinned knees, twisted ankles, jammed fingers and sweat. Water basketball, on the other hand, is perhaps the greatest sport ever invented.
4. Drinking Games
Drinking games always sound like fun, until you’re left with a stinky, sticky mess to clean up. Move the fun to the pool and snorkel for cans in the morning.
Land trampolines usually end in torn ACLs and tears. Water trampolines usually end in smiles and high fives.
Babies are always better at the beach. There are so many things for their little brains to focus on that they’re too distracted to complain about anything.
Umbrellas are like excuses, you only ever need them in bad situations, and they rarely work. Beach umbrellas, however, are like Pop Rocks, they’re always awesome and mean you’re in for a good time.
Stop being sad. Head to the beach with that special someone and spice things up. Ocean sunsets are like relationship crack.
Dogs are always pretty great, but just look at that dog running on the beach. Are you even remotely happy as he is?
Digging is the worst, unless you enjoy dirt, sweat, and blisters. Oh yeah, and unless you’re on the beach. Who hasn’t spent hours in the sand burying siblings, looking for treasure, and building moats? Nobody.
Nobody can tell you to eat your peas when you’re at the beach. That’s right, not even Grandma. Just make sure not to interrupt her romance novels.
