The Lessons of Sunscreen...or Lack of it

We spent the afternoon at the outdoor pool. It was great fun, and two of the boys only got yelled at by the lifeguards twice.

Successful swim.

By dinner time, the boys were turning all sorts of red. Yes, we started out with sunscreen but follow up was lacking.

Yes, it was SPF 30 and waterproof.
Yes, I realize sun exposure around water is intensified.
Yes, I know that burning my children is not good mothering.

Sometimes I forget that the majority of my brood did not take after me when it comes to the sun.
