How did we get here so fast? It' the 4th of July and the weather in the Mid-Atlantic states is hot, hot, hot! Hopefully you and your family have found ways to beat the heat, but if you're looking for suggestions Kristi, Rachel and I have got you covered! PLUS we have a special beat the heat giveaway for you. Read on for all the details on how to enter!
How Do the Mid-Atlantic Moms Beat the Heat?
Kristen - My favorite ways to beat the heat? I like taking my girls to the local pool club/splash pad, beach or water park! I also enjoy cool treats like ice cream or frozen yogurt while strolling on the boardwalk (an iced adult-beverage when we're at a BBQ!) On super hot days nothing beats the cool, air-conditioned rooms of a children's museum! Loads of energy can be burned without anyone getting sunburned!
Kristi - Our family has become huge fans of beating the heat at water parks, At 4 and 7, both of my boys love splashing, swimming and sliding their ways to summer fun. Many theme parks now have water parks as part of their attractions. It means one extra bag to pack swimming clothes, but those water play areas can be really reversing on a summer day! One of our favorite spots at a theme park is Duke's Lagoon at Dutch Wonderland in Lancaster, PA. All of the attractions are perfectly sized for little ones to enjoy so no worries about brining floats or dangerous water depths for parents! If it's too hot to even go outside, a stay at an indoor water park resort like Great Wolf Lodge might be just the ticket! If you're looking for us, we'll be racing down the water slides!
Rachel - While I am not really a hot weather kind of individual it seems like where I live it keeps getting hotter every summer. Haha! Usually we cool off in our own pool, but this year that wasn't an option. Before school let out we would get out of the heat by going to the local library, but with school out for the summer the Library has been pretty busy. Haha! So, we have been trying to go to some water parks. Like Mid-Atlantic mom Kristi we love to go to Duke's Lagoon at Dutch Wonderland, and to keep cool while walking around the park in the heat we LOVE to pack our rechargeable stroller fan and cooling towels. These two items have been a lifesaver on many occasions. They are great for any indoor/outdoor occasion where it will be hot. Our stroller fan can rotate to cool whoever is in the stroller. The cooling towels can be used for hours once wet. Above all when out and about in the heat stay hydrated. Lots of water!
