Hi all it isn't that hot where we live in Western WA but the past few days have been hotter than normal for us. Today it's about 88 degrees outside. I had DD go play outside for a few hours and she had no problems with that and as soon as DS got home from school I took them to the park to play. We lasted about a half hour before DS had enough. There was shade to go in at the park and we had tons of ice cold water to drink but I don't blame DS one bit. I know we're going to try again tomorrow but perhaps a bit earlier in the day seeing as DS doesn't have school. *I'm used to the heat as I grew up with summers being in excess of 100 degrees so while sure this is semi hot to me it doesn't bother me the same way it seems to bug the kids.*
Well its not very hot here(I'm only around 5hrs east of you though) yesterday was just barley 80 and today its around 88ish. But I personally can't handle the heat, ever since having Seamus(and I used to spend my summers in Nebraska with my dad where it would be 100-110 normally), I get nasty headaches when I get over heated. For the kids I have a big blow up pool(something like 7ft long and 5ft wide) and they can play in there, and we're getting Seamus a water table for his birthday so they'll both have that. Also sugar free Popsicle are a big hit(especially for Kieran with her molars coming in again).
We dont have a/c at home so we have a fan in each room running, and baths before bed to help keep them cool when it gets really hot(like the 90-100's last summer and before that)
