A day out in the sun...

So today was my son's first baseball game in a really long time, 4 years to be exact. We had picture day as well and it was crazy. It was HOT. A mother always takes care of her cub but never looks out for herself. After running around in the house getting dressed and ready. I made sure my son had all his gear. I even made sure he had sunscreen on. Guess who didn't wear any though? Yes, you guess it. It is currently 90 degrees outside. We ended up playing two games because of a no show team. So from 8:30 am to 1:30 pm, we were in direct contact with the sun. Luckily i didn't forget my cap and sunglasses. The kids had a blast win or loose. I think the parents were more upset than they were. We lost the first game and won the second game. Good thing i have aloe vera to put on my sunburn. If you don't have some use products like Banana Boat-Aloe Vera. It soothes the sunburn and helps it heal faster.

Things to remember when you are going to be out in the sun:
(especially during the sun's peak hours from 10 am to 4 pm)

1) Wear sunscreen, SPF 30 of higher
2) Use a cap or hat
3) Use sun glasses
4) Drink alot of water.
5) Try and find some kind of shade, even if you use an umbrella.
6) Have fun! Play hard!

Don't get burned like I did!!!
