Top 5 Tips for Dads at the Beach


Top 5 tips for dads at the beachA trip to the beach is supposed to a time to simply relax and revel in the natural beauties of a vacant landscape.

3.) Strategically apply suntan lotion: Do this in private at the beginning of the day, and then revel in your family's amusement that night as they see "Life's A Beach" tanned onto your chest.

4.) Pretend to lose your wed...
