Are you prepared for spontaneous adventure at the drop of the hat? We live in a coastal town. That means that any day the sun is shining, on our way to or from anywhere, my daughter may call from the backseat, “Can we go to the beach?”

So I solved the problem by putting together what I call our summer bag and keeping it in the trunk of my car. Ours is for beach trips, but a bag like this is great for any summer destination – the park, a hike, even the farmer’s market.
This has worked so well I wanted to tell you what I keep in our summer bag so you can make one, too.
