6 Ways We’re Beating the Heat

It’s summer and it’s hot, but I’m not complaining. I love summer. I rather have the kids outside playing than being confined in the house by the blustering cold. Here are 6 ways we’re beating the summer heat.

1.) The sprinkler. Nothing more classic than running through the sprinkler. It definitely keeps them entertained for a while.

2.) Stepping up from the sprinkler…the slip and slide. This one is new for us this year and they love it. It’s the best $15 I’ve spent in a while. Easy to set up and they’re completely entertained. Yes, I’ve had to squash a few spats, but that’s a daily battle anyway.

3.) Bowling. Nice and air conditioned. Check out and find an alley in your area that participates. You receive free weekly bowling passes. Score!

4.) The beach. I wish we could do this one more often. They love the beach and I love that they are completely tuckered out by the end of the day.

5.) The movies. The movies can be pricey for a family of 5 so we don’t do this one too often.

6.) Due to pricey movie theaters we make our own theater at home. A nice air conditioned bedroom complete with twinkle lights, popcorn, m&ms, and a movie. Completely awesome!

AND what do we do when it’s a hot and rainy summer day… PLAY IN THE RAIN of course!

Hope you’re all enjoying your summer.
