We shopped for summer essentials at Walmart today. We don’t go anywhere in the summer – whether it’s a day trip to the beach or the pool – without bringing along snacks. So naturally our first stop was in the pharmacy department to find the two new Balance Bar flavors, cookie dough and peanut butter. I’d never tried these before and I was eager to give them a try.
After picking those up, we had more shopping to do. We’re half way through the summer and we have found that there are still a few things to buy. Our beach towels always seem to be in the wash with all of our trips to the beach and the pool, so I let Emma and Ryan each choose their towel, which ended up being Tinkerbell for Emma and Planes for Ryan.
We were also running low on sun screen and Emma and I both needed some new shorts to wear around the house. We decided on four pairs for her and a new pair of flip-flops, and I also got a pair of comfortable shorts. The kids had just run out of bubbles so I picked up two big bottles. Hopefully they will last us a while!
All that shopping made us hungry.
Emma and I didn’t waste any time trying the new Balance Bars.; we opened both boxes soon after arriving home. Both the cookie dough and peanut butter flavors were fantastic, we agreed. The worst part about day trips is having to pack for them, so I love that these bars are easy to grab and go. I like to keep a few in my glove box and diaper bag or purse for those just-in-case moments.
