(4) FUN IN THE SUN PACKAGE $300 Value
Snapper Rock Swim Suits
Win two bathing suits of your choice for you and / or the kiddos. I LOVE this brand. They sent me a trifecta of swimsuits to try out and my little ones and I went nuts for the patterns and material. We have worn them around the world; this brand ROCKS (pun intended). Snapper Rock began in 2003 when the company moved from New Zealand to one of America’s great sailing capitals and saw the need for fun, fresh and functional, protective gear for kids on the water. Snapper Rock was launched for the junior sailing market, and it didn’t take long before they expanded into sun protection range for children 0-16 years, and in 2017 the brand extended into our adults range ‘SR’. Snapper Rock’s line includes UV protection (blocking 98% of all harmful rays) lightweight, breathable and quick drying without compromising on style. From baby one piece sunsuits, to cool mix and match swim sets, rash tops, boardies, hats and kaftans, Snapper Rock has your kids covered head to toe. (snapperrock.com)

My family LOVES these car seats. My girlfriend Dusty told me about them and we purchased two before traveling abroad over winter break. They are a great space saver, easy to travel with, and quite affordable. The award-winning BubbleBum is the original, inflatable car booster seat for kids aged 4-11 years, weighing 40-100 lbs. perfect for road trips/vacations, fly-ins with car rental, taxi rides and every day carpooling. The IIHS (Insurance Institute of Highway Safety) chose BubbleBum as the “Best Bet” in their booster seat evaluation report for the past 6 years. Weighing in at less than one pound, BubbleBum can deflate in minutes, making it simple to throw in a backpack or large purse. BubbleBum includes belt-positioning clips in place of arm rests, so it’s possible to fit three boosters across the back seat of a car, minivan, or SUV. BubbleBum was created by an Irish mom-of-two, Grainne Kelly, as a solution to her own struggles while lugging heavy booster seats during her travels with her kids. Available in Pink (Cotton Candy/Raspberry) or Black, it retails for $29.99 at bubblebum.co/us/
