We have our local swimming pool to help keep us cool. If only getting myself in a swimsuit were easier! The kids have fun, though. And it's free. So I can't complain.
There are also a few inexpensive local attractions like the zoo and children's museums that are about an hour away. We will definitely need to hit those up.
And parks, you can't go wrong with playing at the park. In 100 degree weather. :)
I think much of our summer will be taken up with cooking, crafts, and playing Wii! The kids could play Wii all day if I let them. What's funny is that they don't play all the expensive games we've bought. They play the Wii Sports game that came with the console. So for anyone looking to invest in a Wii, the kids will have a blast just bowling and boxing and playing tennis on the game that already comes in the box.
And now we're off to the pool to enjoy this hot summer, without Daddy, the best we can.
