As hard as I try to put the cell phone down when out and about, it never actually happens. It's so convenient to have around. During the summer, I like to take nature walks and spend more time outside exploring. I only carry the essentials and that definitely includes my phone. It stays safe and secure with a diy carrying case that can be worn on the shoulder or crossbody.

My mobile phone is a very necessary tool in my life so it stays around for family fun days whether exploring on nature walks or simply hanging out at the playground. I want to take pictures. I may want to share them with friends. I also want to be able to make calls or quickly order movie tickets should we need to find a cooler place to hang.

What I don't like to do is take the entire contents of my purse with me. My mom bag is way too big to trek around. A secure place for phone, identification, and a credit card are my must haves when hanging at the park. I do like to be hands free so adding a strap to the case is the perfect solution. I can push swings and beat Violet in a race across the park. A strap adds quick access in case I want to take a snap or two.

With a shoulder strap, there's no danger of dropping my new LG Grace. I purchased it along with a new Walmart Family Mobile Plan powered by T-Mobile's nationwide 4G LTE† network. If you're looking for a new plan that's super affordable and comes with all of the bells and whistles, then check out Walmart Family Mobile $49.88 TRULY Unlimited Plan.

It's an unlimited talk, text and data plan that includes up to 15 GB of 4G LTE† data, then 2G* after that. It also comes with a free VUDU◊ movie rental credit valued at $7.00 each time you renew service. We used ours immediately for our Friday movie night.

A robust data plan is so necessary. The 15GB of 4G LTE† data is extremely helpful on summer road trips. Long stretches in the car are perfect for listening to digital books and music or simply checking in on social media. Also, that data helps map out the fastest routes through traffic and alerts us of jams or bad weather while on the road. That's a major perk.

†To get 4G LTE speed, you must have a 4G LTE capable device and 4G LTE SIM Card. Actual availability, coverage and speed may vary. LTE is a trademark of ETSI.

The Walmart Family Mobile powered by T-Mobile plan is really easy to start or switch to. The SIM card was already in the phone when I opened the box. I purchased the $49.88 TRULY Unlimted Plan right from the display in Walmart. I was easily able to go online and activate the service within minutes. There's no contract. There's no activation fee. There's no late charges. It's the best plan to have for convenience and affordability.

Do you take your mobile phone with you when having outdoor summer fun?
