The Aquafresh brand has compensated me in connection with the statements made in this post.
We are a boating family.
Our boat is our second home in the summertime and basically Rob's first home as he tends to spend nights on the boat instead of coming home (side eye).
Anyway, one of my absolute favorite times to spend on the water and the beach is the 4th of July weekend. I grew up living by the river and the big 4th of July barge would park right in front of my grandparents dock, so fireworks on the water is essentially a huge part of my childhood.
Now that I have young kids of my own, I love sharing my memories and experiences with them. I love seeing them run on the beach and enjoy the fireworks and have fun with their friends and family. Making memories is so important to me as a mom, and I try my darnedest to mess them up as little as possible, ha ha.
We have a few holiday traditions as a family: invite as many good people as we can find, have cold beverages always on hand and assigning everyone one bomb side dish to enjoy beachside.
Because, food. This crowd loves our food. And of course on a holiday like the 4th, a lot of that food has sugar involved. How many red, white and blue combinations of fruit pizza can you make? You'd be surprised, but I can tell you from personal experience that it's more than ten.
After a long day out in the sun, having all the fun and eating all the food, I give my kids a bath, get them in the PJs and whip out the good ole' red, white and blue Aquafresh® Multi-Action Whitening toothpaste. I'm sure you all remember that as a kid? I know I do, and I know my kids think the colors are a pretty cool element.
Look. I'm crazy about my kids and their health. And I can probably count on one hand how many times my kids have gone to bed without brushing their teeth (seriously). So when I got re-introduced to Aquafresh® and then also learned how it provides Sugar Acid Protection (and what's a kid without sugar??), provided by active fluoride, to strengthen and shield teeth against sugar acid from everyday foods and drinks*, the key cause of cavities.
Not only that, but Aquafresh® also promotes healthy gums*, enamel strengthening and gives you fresh breath. The family that brushes together stays healthy together, am I right? (Ok that was kind of corny but still, true!)
Having fun responsibly, that's what I'm calling it. *wink
Have a fun summer guys!
