Each season brings its own personality with fun traditions and summertime is no different! We bought this adorable inflatable pool and slide that Ryker plays on almost every day. He is fearless and it kills me and makes me proud all at the same time. We have also been talking more strolls around the neighborhood park and checking off silly items from our summer bucket list.
But let’s shake things up a little, shall we?! I am an avid water drink and always have been. Living in the desert has helped me drink a lot more water than I use to in college or growing up. I usually only drink 2 sodas a year and I can barely finish them! That habit started after cutting sodas for Lent one year in high school. I love flavor but don’t want all the added sugars and calories that come with most drinks and they usually make me feel sluggish and tired.
So we tested out a new product, Sparkling Ice, now available on Amazon. Who doesn’t love Amazon Prime?! They have over 15 fruity sparkling water flavors and I took a little Facebook poll to see what everyone’s favorite flavors were. The verdict?
Coconut and Strawberry!!!
The hubs also loves Orange Mango and with it being so dang hot outside I whipped up some Sparkling Ice Popsicles in these adorable molds I grabbed at the store. Sparkling Ice has zero calories and no sugar so it’s the perfect snack for all of us.
The boys seemed to really enjoy them and with prep time literally being 1 minute I would call that a Mom win for a bland free summer! I don’t even have to go to the store thanks to Amazon.
Yesterday, I also mixed some flavors together for new combos and the possibilities are endless. Also an instant goodbye to teething pain… can I get an AMEN!
