July might be the middle month for summer vacation, but August, at least in Texas, is when the temperatures are at their highest. In an effort to keep cool and stay calm here are 10 ways for us all to enjoy the dog days of summer.
10 Ways to Enjoy the Dog Days of Summer
2. Eat some freezer pops. According to my children they are even more fun if you eat them in a lightsaber freezer pop holder.
3. Go swimming. This is course a perennial favorite. We don’t have a swimming pool at our house (and our downtown apartment didn’t have a pool either). So I’m really happy to have discovered Hawaiian Falls and their family friendly water park. There are age appropriate attractions for all the kids and everyone leaves happy. With several pools in the Dallas/Fort Worth area we’re hoping to try them all.
4. Or head to a splash pad.
5. Cool off inside with a movie. You can also pair the movie with the ice cream.
9. Make a craft with Kool-Aid. And drink some while you are crafting.
And a bonus, make some dry shampoo. I think dry shampoo is a summer time necessity.
