The hottest parts of summer are over where I live. It is still hot out but I do not think there will be many more heat advisory days. Which is wonderful. How do I deal with the summer heat?
I am not sure that I do much of anything different in the summer now that I have an ac unit. I will try to go out in the mornings before the heat and humidity really hit but other than that I do not do a lot more.
I will take my children to play in the sprinklers or to get a slushie. Then encourage them to come inside to cool down before they go out again. I get as much work done as I can in the middle part of the day so I can go out and enjoy the cooler evening with my children.
However treats get changed up a bit at home. Purple cows, orange julius, and popsicles tend to be seen a lot starting in July. One child has a summer birthday and it tends to be so hot that we do not go outside to enjoy the day and play. But for his birthday the one fun thing we do is make our own ice cream. That is always fun. The kids enjoy having all the ice. On occasion it will find itself in someone’s lap as a surprise that erupts the area in giggles and the yelp from the person who received it.
Do you have any cool treats for the hottest days of summer?
