Also learn how my sponsors at Banana Boat can keep you protected for all your outdoor summertime bashes!

I received product samples to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for participating.
Last weekend one of my oldest and dearest friends came to visit. It was a great time reuniting and catching up after not seeing each other for 3 whole years. We really couldn’t even believe that that much time had passed since our last visit together. While enjoying our weekend, we decided that it would be fun to have a little get together with some other friends that she hadn’t seen in a while. Because we wanted to enjoy our weekend together, rather then spending the whole time preparing for a party, we decided to keep things summertime-simple with a party featuring watermelon, water balloons and water-guns. With a couple watermelons to serve, a few packs of cheap water-guns and some filled water balloons, we where ready for a fun and easy summertime party!
I love ice-cold watermelon on a hot summer day, however I hate cutting it up because sticky watermelon juice ends up all over the counter (and usually floor) where I am cutting it. So in keeping with my goal to have an easy, no-fuss party, I decided to give this easy no-fuss watermelon cutting technique a try! After trying it for our party, I don’t think I will ever cut watermelon another way again. It was so simple and there was absolutely no mess to clean up when I was done. It also made for an easy way to serve the watermelon because everyone could just grab a slice and enjoy!
The party was a huge success! Everyone enjoyed the refreshing watermelon and the water balloons and water guns where big hits… Especially with all the grown men! I think there is something about the simplicity of playing with water that makes everyone relive their childhood a bit.
Whether your next summertime party is a simple get-together like mine or an elaborate soirée make sure to invite one VIP guest…Banana Boat Sunscreen. Because the men who came to my party ended up being the ones outside playing in the water the longest, the new Banana Boat Triple DefenseSunscreen for Men was a great item to have on hand. This is sunscreen made especially for active men in mind as it provides heavy-duty broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection in a light-weight formula that even combats sweat induced odor, and hydrates the skin. Banana Boat® Triple Defense Sunscreen for Men Lotion and Clear UltraMist® is available in SPF 30 and 50+.
