My new sun tent

J1 bought me a lovely popup sun tent for when we're down at the beach. It's 50+ UPF which means that I stay cool and in the shade. I like to sit at the entrance to watch the world go by.

The yellow hoopy toy I'm munching on here was history about 10 minutes after this photo was taken.

Can you see J1 kinda hunched in the tent behind me? I'm laughing because she bought the "infant" sized tent and still thought she could get in with me. Cheapskate! It's not a Tardis!

We are assuming from the pictures that you had a great time at the beach? The tent is cool, and you should let J1 have more space.

Amber-Mae said...

Oh wow! Oh yeah, you really need that or else you'll melt, teeheehee! We're going to the beach next next week. I'm sooo excited! never been to the beach before. Any advices for me & my sistas when we're at the beach?

Love licks,

mom tried to crawl into my tiny tent with me too and nearly tore the whole thing, the big buffalo!

you look nice with the sun in your face; methinks i'm going to get some too. :)


Miss Peach>(^,^) said...

JX your suntent is very cool! I like the smooth pebbles on your it hard to get comfy on them when you lay down? I could look at them and pick nice ones for my garden. I have dry river beds in my garden.
You got a gr8 smile:)
Come listen to a cool song today at my know who is singing, he's from your part of the world:)
Your pal Peach

jaffeboy said...

U went to the beach?! That is so nice! But why are you in the tent instead of swimming? You stay cooler in the water than in the tent I bet.

Swimming, I love swimming, when will I be going swimming again?

Butchy & Snickers said...

That's a very nice tent Jackson! But your Mama should have boughten a bigger one, hehehehe! Snickers & I each have our very own umbrella out on our deck to keep the sun off of us. Maybe we can convince Mama to get us a tent too, we think it's very cool.
Luv & Wirey Hugs!

I just wanted to tell you that that second picture of you is near perfection. No, it IS perfection. That tent looks handy. I wouldn't have to dig my holes in the shade if I had one of those.
