Jordan King Au.D.

was born and raised in North Little Rock. She is a pediatric audiologist specializing in cochlear implants and is beginning her 15th year of practice at Arkansas Children’s Hospital. She is wife to her high school sweetheart, Luke, and mother to Georgia Grace, a 9-year-old lover of tennis, and Davis, a 4-year-old lover of dinosaurs. On most of her days off in the summertime she can be found at her neighborhood pool with the kids, having fun in the sun and spending too much money at the concession stand.

I’ve carried this Thirty-One large utility tote as a pool bag for years. It’s a great size to hold multiple towels, an assortment of toys, goggles, snacks, sunscreen, etc.

The kids love these Mist ‘N Sip water bottles! They are insulated to keep their water cold and also have a fun mister that they can use to cool off.

Splash swim goggles are a new find for me this year! The fabric strap doesn’t break easily or get stuck in long hair, it’s also easier for younger kiddos to put on without assistance. I found out about these from a client of mine who loves them for helping keep her daughter’s cochlear implants on when she swims.

I bought these MIA shoes for my daughter to wear as pool shoes this year. They are so soft and comfy, and a more reasonably priced version of the Birkenstock Eva sandals that are so popular.

One of my favorite pool hacks is attaching a carabiner clip to the shoulder strap of my pool bag. I “hole-punch” the corners of our pool membership cards and put them on the clip so we have our cards handy.

Command utility hooks are another favorite “water fun” hack of mine. have you EVER stayed in a beach house/condo that had enough hooks in the bathroom for everyone’s damp towels? I hang these in the bathroom and on the last (sad) night of our beach week I pop them off with no damage to the wall.

Neutrogena Beach Defense is my go-to sunscreen for myself. I also really like Sun Bum products for my face and for my kids. Sun Bum is labeled for sensitive skin and I find that my kids' sensitive skin and eyes are tolerant of it.

Sometimes water fun means playing in the sprinkler in the yard, or time at the lake. Epoch Baobab Body Butter smells like cupcakes, feels wonderful on your skin and keeps away the mosquitos. It’s not marketed as a mosquito repellent, but this lotion works better for my family than any commercially available bug spray.
