Always On The Go This Summer

As most of you may know we just finished our road trip across Canada from Toronto, Ontario to Calgary, Alberta. It may not have been across the entire country, but we did DSC03436drive through four provinces, with four kids and that is a big adventure! Now that we are here, we are so excited and we have so much planned over the next three weeks.
I have been planning all of the different places we can go and activities we can do, plus my sister has been finding and creating her own list of places for us to visit as well. It’s going to be a very fun trip here in Alberta, but as you can imagine very busy! Three weeks may seem like a long time, but when we have so much planned, I know we will be non-stop every day.

Some of our plans include visiting Banff National Park, Lake Louise, The Canadian Badlands and of course the Dinosaur Discovery Park. Emily and the triplets have been fascinated with dinosaurs lately, so I know they will be in awe when they see the fossils at the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Palaeontology.

We will be spending a lot of time outside and in the sun, whether it’s hiking, swimming or even a picnic, so it’s important that I make sure everyone is protected from the sun. Along with light weight and loose clothing, plus a hat and sunglasses, I use the Banana Boat® Simply Protect™ Kids Sunscreen Lotion for Emily and the triplets. I have been loving the new Simply Protect formula and how easily it is to apply to your skin. When I have four kids that need sunscreen, I want one that goes on quickly and doesn’t leave an oily feel. The Banana Boat® Simply Protect™ Kids Sunscreen Lotion does just that while also being water-resistant for up to 80 minutes.


While I have my focus on making sure Emily, Jackson, Olivia and Levi have their sunscreen on and are well protect, I often times forget about myself. After the kids have their sunscreen lotion on, they are ready to go and are not always willing to sit and wait DSC03528Bfor me. That’s when the Banana Boat® Simply Protect™ Sport Sunscreen Spray comes in handy! Just like the Simply Protect Kids Sunscreen, the Simply Protect Sport Sunscreen Spray uses the same Simply Protect formula that is made with 25% fewer ingredient, no oxybenzone and no added oils and fragrances. It also provides Broad Spectrum UVA/UVB protection, is light weight and water and sweat resistant. When I am running after four kids or even just running around unpacking everything and everyone from the van, a sweat resistant sunscreen is what I need.

Having a spray sunscreen is so useful, especially when you have kids to get ready. It is so convenient and a time saver when you need to apply sunscreen quickly. With the Banana Boat® Simply Protect™ Sport Sunscreen Spray I can apply sunscreen myself once everyone else is ready and they are not left sitting around waiting because it only takes a couple of minutes to spray the sunscreen on and quickly rub it in.


As parents we know how important it is to be protected from the sun and it can sometimes be difficult to have our kids understand the importance. We are always on top of our kids sun protection and it’s important not to forget about ourselves. The Banana Boat® Simply Protect™ Sport Sunscreen Spray is so simple to apply and perfect for keeping up with our busy families. I know we will be doing lots of driving from place to place and after sitting for a while in the van, the kids are going to want to get up and go. Using the Simply Protect™ Sport Sunscreen Spray, will save me a lot of time and allow us to start our adventures that much sooner!

We would love to hear some of the fun places you have visited throughout Canada, especially those ones in Alberta that we should check out!
