Only the essentials

Ok. So I’m packing the van for a week at the Outer Banks. I’ve got the grocery list. The big Yeti cooler. The little Eddie Bauer Backpack cooler. I’ve got the sunscreen, the beach umbrella, and the Tommy Bahamas beach chairs. Oh...what am I forgetting? Oh yes-- the beach paddle ball set, the frisbee, and the corn hole boards.
