Summer is just around the corner, and visions of lazy days at the beach and pool are starting to cloud our brains.

If you're like me, you've already started making summer plans, and most of those plans probably include some sort of water. My family is planning to head to the beach, pool, and our local waterpark in the coming months.

Just me? Okay.
