Share Your Summer - What's in My Pool Bag?

With my busy weekend (revolving around the pool, nonetheless), I forgot to write my post for yesterday's link up with The Magnolia Mamas. This week's topic was all about our pool bags.

We're fortunate enough to live fairly close to our neighborhood pool, so we choose to walk. The kids don't mind the walk over, but aren't as crazy about the walk home! Ha! (What about poor momma pulling the wagon both ways??) But nothing beats not having to load up kids (with sunscreen) in a hot car to drive over. So we load up our wagon instead. 

Inside the wagon, you'll find a few different bags. 

The biggest one is our food bag. I always pack our lunches and lots of snacks since we usually go for a few hours. Plus, the kids always seem to wanna eat during the "adult swim" time.

Then I always pack a cooler with our cold food/drinks.

I have a smaller bag for sunscreen, pool passes, chapstick, cash, my phone, and tissues. 

I also have a bag of towels and a bag of pool toys (but I forgot to snap pics of them).

In addition to all of our bags, we load up pool noodles, a stand alone umbrella, life jackets, and anything else we can think of! Ha! Needless to say, we are pretty loaded down for our journey to the pool. 

But once we are set up - we are good to go for a few hours. And my son mostly prefers to sit in the shade and eat food for the majority of the time. Ha!

Anything special you like to take to the pool that maybe I should add to my wagon??


  1. LOVE that you have a pool wagon, that is so smart! All of your bags are sooo cute, too!

  2. Love this! I'm not nearly this organized. I have the kids grab a towel and I throw some drinks and some chips in the cooler and call it a day!

  3. All your pool bags are so cute!!! The wagon certainly makes things easier - I'll have to share that tidbit with my sister! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  4. You are super prepared!!!
    My BIL and SIL have a beach cart when we go to the beach and that thing is always overflowing with stuff. Your wagon looks a bit more manageable lol

  5. We love it! Thanks for linking up! That wagon is definitely the way to go. I can't believe you tote your own umbrella with you! That is brilliant. :-)
