Shortly after we launched Good Weekend we took photos with Isabella Buran and her (then) little trio, at one of our local beaches. Since then, Belle has welcomed another baby to her bunch and the whole crew continues to impress us with their endless, dreamy days spent by the water together. 

We caught up with Belle to ask her a little about her summer days of late :)

What are your favorite things about Florida summers?

The water gets crystal clear and is so so warm. We spend all our days just swimming around finding shells and playing “sharks and mermaids” haha 

What's your secret to successfully shepherding 4 littles to the beach?

Just take it one moment at a time! Have patience and don’t rush the walks back and forth. Pack light (you really don’t need that much) and just throw everything in one bag instead of lugging around a wagon! Make your older kids carry what they can and bring snacks! 

What items are always in your beach bag?

I always always have my business and pleasure umbrella (it’s the travel one so only 4 pounds and I’ve had it for years and still holds up great), a clean, ocean friendly sunscreen (babo, badger, and sunbum mineral are some of my favorites), towels (we love slowtide), and hats (hey august co are so cute)! Also snacks always!!

Favorite local spots with kids?

We love Riomar beach & the Fort Pierce Inlet!!

What do you hope your kids will remember most about this summer?

I hope my kids remember all our days in the sun! Swimming in the water, finding our favorite shells, building drippy castles. My daughter, Clementine, caught her first solo wave this summer and I hope she’ll always remember us cheering her on.
