how we stay dry
A big part of us being able to get out all year long is being able to stay dry no matter the weather. This is where our Oakiwear rain gear comes in.
A big part of us being able to get out all year long is being able to stay dry no matter the weather. This is where our Oakiwear rain gear comes in. Most recently we have had the pleasure to use their rain boots and pants.
Rain boots normally make me kind of nervous because most of the ones we have used in the past have been really stiff. Right off the bat our Oakiwear boots have been comfortable, light weight and easy for my 3 year old to walk in. To top it off they have a ton of really cute styles to choose from. Of course my daughter picked out the pink and red elephant ones and boy was she excited when they arrived!! From a mom side of things it is really important for me to have kid gear that they can put on themselves. With 3 littles I don't really have the patience to get everyone dressed each time we want to go outside (maybe that just makes me sound like a bad mom...) and these boots have great handles at the top for her to put them on herself. It was a relief to me and a confidence booster for her! Another big factor for me in outdoor gear is price, I need quality products that will also not break the bank, these boots are the perfect fit for that!
The Children's Trail II rain pants have also really been a great item to have. So far they have kept her totally dry in the rain and I love that she can put these on by herself as well! At the base of the pants is a thick neoprene band to keep them tight around the boot and the waist band is a thick elastic. The seams are all sealed and there is enough extra room so she can bend and move as much as she wants without being restricted!
I have now had the pleasure of using their kids rain suits and their pants. Honestly I really like the suits because it is one piece which makes me feel like it will keep water out better but I have to say I LOVE that with the pants my girls can get ready by themselves. I have also found that my girls like the pants a lot more than their suits. I think they feel more grown up in them. No matter which way you go your kid(s) will stay nice and dry! To finish off their rain protection grab a pair of Oakiwear rain boots!
Another product that was new for me to use was their women's Monumenta rain boots. I had so much fun playing in the puddles with my girls! They are nice and tall so I don't have to worry about water going over the top of them and slim enough to make it easy to walk in. One of the things I love the most about parenting is being able to have a childhood all over again and with my new rain boots this second childhood got even better! I highly suggest you get a pair for yourself and having a puddle jumping contest with your littles!

I think that bringing an umbrella with you is the right decision. It is the rainy season, and we are going to have to deal with the terrible weather. It is a complete waste if we just get ourselves drenched in the rain and we end up getting sick. It is more practical to just bring an umbrella with us at all times. I know that it is a huge bother, but believe me, it is better than getting sick during this season.
