With the rising temperatures, everyone will be flooding to the nearest body of water they can find. Whether it's floating the river, going to your grandparent's to use their pool or taking a trip out to the lake, safety is so important. Here's a list I've compiled of some handy items to pick up before diving into your next water adventure.
Ripstop Pet Floatation Life Vest
My dad actually just bought a life vest for his dog since she tends to cling to him in water. Maybe your dog is less of a baby, but it's always a good idea to keep one on hand just in case. And these come in both a mermaid and shark style - how cute!

First Aid Kit for Car, SUV and Marine by Higher Gear
Having a first aid kit in your boat, car or house seems obvious but sometimes it's easy to forget that a crisis can occur without warning at any moment. Anxiety-inducing, right? Just go ahead and buy a few and ease your mind knowing you're covered in an emergency. This shoreline marine air horn also seems handy to keep in your boat's glove compartment. Just saying.

Scotty Throw Bag with 50-Feet of Floating MFP Line
Another handy item to keep stowed away for tying together tubes for floating the river or to have on-hand in case someone drifts a little too far away while you're chilling on the lake. It never hurts to be over-prepared!
