We spent a lot of time in bathing suits.

IMG_8431

Henry and I venture to the pool or the splash playground nearly every single day. I can’t imagine summer without these activities. In the afternoons, it’s too hot to do almost anything else, and like most toddlers, Henry loves being in and playing with water.

 

Here are four little tricks for making summer water fun a bit more fun (and easier for momma, too):

IMG_8423

Click through to read my four favorite tips + to enter to win a $150 gift card from Albion Fit (no worries – this ‘click through’ option isn’t a permanent feature on regular HTP posts – just for giveaways).

1.) An inflatable beach ball:  Henry loves balls, but they aren’t the easiest toy to carry around.  A big, soft beach ball is easy for Henry and his friends to grab, kick, and throw.  And – most importantly – it deflates to practically nothing, so it slips right into the side pocket of my diaper bag.

 

2) Water shoes:  Okay.  I confess.  I thought water shoes were one of those things that only crazy helicopter parents forced their children to wear.  After all, I don’t remember wearing water shoes as an older kid.  But for a toddler – man, water shoes rock!  They protect Henry’s toes and feet from debris and hard edges.  Most importantly, the shoes prevent burns at the splash playground.  The other day, I put him down without shoes, and he started to say, “Hot, hot, hot!” and do a little dance.  And Henry’s actually in-between shoe sizes right now, so he wear his perfectly-fitting water shoes all day long.

 

3) Large empty yogurt containers:  Perfect for pouring and carrying water around. And ‘sharing’ water with Dad. I could buy plastic buckets, but why not reduce, reuse, recycle?

IMG_8436

4) Newborn bathtub: An ideal little ‘baby pool’ for our back deck.  We’ve used that bathtub more as a pool than we did as a tub!  Fill it with plastic balls and – tada! – toddler heaven.

 

My conundrum this summer was what I should wear on our water excursions.  I had Henry’s outfit down, but could never figure out my ideal situation.  I tried wearing my old string bikinis and – hah! – no way.  There’s far too much running, chasing, swinging, throwing, and general opposite-of-sun-tanning-on-the-towel behavior going on to wear a skimpy, flimsy suit.  So I tried wearing my fitness suits, the only one pieces that I owned, to the pool instead.  And while it worked okay, lap suits don’t offer much support up top and are too snug to be comfortable on dry land.

 

Enter: Albion Fit, a vintage-inspired women’s fitness and swimwear, as well as workout clothing, line.

 

When Albion Fit emailed me asking if I’d like to review one of their suits, my first thought was: are you kidding me?  I can barely pick out a good suit in person at the store; I could never find one that fit online.  I wrote back, “Do you have something pretty but functional; strong enough to withstand toddler play; supportive enough so I feel comfortable; with a shelf bra that actually fits; and in a really pretty color?”  I thought they’d say, “You mean a miracle suit that doesn’t exist?”  But they simple wrote back, “You’ve got to try the Icon suit!”

IMG_8356

This really is the best swimsuit that I’ve ever owned.  (For sizing reference, I’m wearing a small.)

 

The color is so deep, rich, and fabulous.  I love the vintage inspiration. And the ruching is super flattering.  The shelf bra and thin pads are supportive and functional.  And the one-shoulder design is – dare I say it – pretty darn hot.  But above all else, I can actually PLAY in this suit!  I’ve even worn it to a water park and went down the big slide in it!

Other Albion Fit items that caught my eye in their online shop include:

 

The Athena and The Gown Suit

High Tide and The Showstopper

The Sweet Stripe Full Zip and The Petal Pant

The Breathe Freely Tank

I really love the quality of the Icon swimsuit, and I swear that I can’t believe an online suit fit so well.  Guess that’s what high-quality is all about.  You can check out Albion Fit on Facebook or Twitter.

 

I’m giving away a $150 gift card to the Albion Fit online store!  To win, simply leave a comment describing your favorite summertime activity + the name of your favorite Albion Fit item (just check out their site).  I’ll pick a winner on Friday at 9 AM. And PS – Use code “tippingpoint20” for $20 off any Albion Fit purchase of $50 or more, exp. 8/16/13).

    I have two favorite summertime activities. First, I’m blessed enough to live right next to the ocean, so I love going to the beach to swim and relax after work. Second, every Sunday during the summer, I go to church with my mom, we grab lattes at a cute coffee shop, and walk on the beach for a couple hours. Summer = heaven.

    I’m in a similar situation. My son will be 1 on Monday (oh.my.god) and finding a suit that flatters a post-baby belly (let’s face it, even if the weight’s gone there’s extra skin there when I bend over/run after my son), stays on throughout playtime and grabby baby hands and is comfortable! This summer we took Jackson to the beach for the first time. It was the most priceless experience seeing his face light up, him giggle like a crazy person and take off running towards the waves.

    My favorite summer activity is the pool. Or really anything to do with water. I’m not too picky!

    On a side note, Henry is so stinkin cute! I think the combination of his toddler size and his above average motor skills just make him extra adorable. He is like a little dude in a baby costume. Love it!

    My youngest is almost 14 months and she is still perfecting her walking skills. She sort of walks more side to side than straight forward and she holds her hands up for balance as she goes (probably because her sister and cousins always held her hands to help her walk) and she looks like the perfect imitation of a monkey. We love it!!

    Love the suits. I am large chested and very active at the pool/water park. It can be super difficult to fund suits that work for the physical, but are also pleasing to the eye (my eye).

Let me tell you it is such an enjoyable trip and I look forward to doing it once a week.

    Bah, I JUST bought a new swimsuit, too. I could never afford these suits on my own, so this is an awesome giveaway. I saw your suit on FB and was like, what the what? That’s the cutest suit, ever! I really like the Athena one, too.

    My favorite summer activity maybe isn’t so much an activity, but I love laying on a blanket in our local part on “live music in the park” nights with my hubs. Kids are running around and everyone’s playing cards or games, talking, and just having a chill time. I love that. The three months of summer in Oregon is that rare time we can be outside and not get rained on. :)

    Summer is for ANYTHING outside. :) Hiking, swimming, biking, exploring gardens, picnics in the shade.

    As a mom of a three year old and a 1 year old we spend tons of time outside. We also love the splash parks. We are blessed with grandparents who own a beach house so we spend lots of time on the water in a boat. I also struggle between wanting to get back into the bikini but it not being practical to play on the beach or at the park, or hold onto two kids in a boat (often when they grip the sides of my suits when the boat goes fast and I give little peep shows unknowingly to innocent bystanders).Despretely need a new suit but havent had any shopping time in months (also work full time) and so have just been wearing old suit with stretched elastic and coverups. No practical, cute or comfortable. Would love to win your certificate!

    That suit looks stunning on you! I love the cut & color!

    We live in Phoenix so to be outside in the summer you had better be getting wet, it’s too miserable otherwise. Splash pads are definitely a must and, like you, we always have to bring a container of some sort with us. If we don’t leave the house, I fill up a storage container with water and let my almost 3 yr old splash around in that in the backyard.
    A trip to California is always a highlight- we love the beach. A lake trip doesn’t always happen every summer so to go & wakeboard is an added bonus :)

    We did go for a couple of dips in a fresh water lake while camping however my HUGE fear of leechs prevented us from being in there to long.. Give me jelly fish any day.

    My favorite summer activity is just simply the whole summer with my one year old. I’m a teacher and thought I had the summer off with Gregory last year, when he was born, this summer has been even better. We just found a splash pad this weekend and that’s been great, but we also love going for stroller runs, running to different parks and going to the pool. I can’t believe summer is almost over!

    My favorite suits on the site are the Icon and the Criss Cross. Both seem perfect for our fun and unpredictable summer days!

    That suit is absolutely adorable on you! I love it!

    My favorite summertime activity is running, but I guess that is kind of cheating since it’s always my favorite thing to do. Aside form running i’d say it is taking family walks to our nearby splash pad and park.

    I really like the Love Racer in silver, in addition to a lot of other items on the site.

    Favorite summer activity…. gardening. I love being out doors and working in the garden and making the outside of our home full of color. I also enjoy seeing the hummingbirds zip around to the flowers :) Closely followed by anything water related. Like swimming, sprinkler jumping and water rafting :)

    the High Tide looks pretty cool. Would love to get that one. And the sweet strip capri from the site :)
