Summer has arrived in Mid-Michigan …or at least it feels like it to us, after MONTHS of snow. =)

My husband and I went out on a limb and purchased a second home, our “cottage”, in July 2016. Since then, we have been enjoying the heck out of it every summer. Michigan summers may be short, but that just means we go ALL OUT and enjoy every second. Sure,  it can be hectic. Keeping an eye on four kids while trying to open/close the cottage every year, get the dock in, the boat in, etc…but we know we are creating wonderful memories for the little ones.

This year I was really excited about one of our new finds. My kids and I have pretty fair skin, and we all burn. My daughter breaks out into a crazy full-body rash when she uses regular sunscreen, so we have to buy an expensive special kind for her. On top of that, it’s just a giant pain applying sunscreen 6 times a day to kids who JUST WANT TO PLAY in the water! SO…I was so happy to come across the Swim Zip Line. I actually remember seeing them present on TV on the show Shark Tank. Well, now they are all over and taking the world by storm.

Why they’re different than other suits:

-They offer UPF 50 + ALL DAY

-They have the cutest styles & designs out there, period.

-The kids can easily get them on/off themselves, and they don’t have to struggle with pulling a tight wet suit over their heads. They just simply unzip and slip out.

-They’re just plain better. From the moment I opened the package, I could tell. They just *feel* better. They’re high-quality, and not even comparable to any other suit material I have purchased.


There ya have it. We do still apply sunscreen, but it’s SO much less overwhelming now, and my kids actually love being in these suits.

If you have little fishies for children like I do, then check them out!
