The Texas summers are so hot. I think we started getting into the 90’s in May this year and we just started hitting the 100-degree temps this month in July! Even though it’s hot, we are finding some fun ways to stay cool this summer. And as long as we’re chill, there’s not much that can bring us down. 🙂
Here is a list of our favorite activities to do to keep cool this summer.
- Water play
We love getting outdoors, even if it’s in our own backyard, and playing in the water. Every morning we go outside and fill our water toys and buckets with water, get in the mud and even run through the sprinkler.
- Drink chilled drinks
We love going to our local mall to drink our favorite Lemonade Iced Tea from Auntie Anne’s. Staying indoors with our favorite tea is so refreshing. The kids love to explore the mall and get their favorite salted pretzels from Auntie Anne’s. The Lemonade Iced Tea is quickly becoming a favorite and we are excited that is now a permanent addition to the menu.
- Indoor play dates for both you AND the kids
Get together with some of your mama friends and just let the kids play. I find that getting together with moms who have kids around the same age and just sitting and talking is so re-energizing for me. Play dates don’t just have to be for the kiddos. 🙂
We always start swim classes during the summer. And even when we’re not in swim class we’re frequenting the pool because there’s just not any cooler place to be than the water.
Thak you to Auntie Anne’s for sponsoring this post! The core of their new Lemonade Iced tea is to take this classic to the next level. It’s mixed with freshly brewed iced tea and served over ice. You can choose to mix it with a sweet tea or my favorite, unsweetened tea to give it just the right amount of sweet. It’s so refreshing.
