I have this saying…”I will not let my circumstances rule my emotions!”

I will just keep repeating that in my mind today as I’m tempted to complain about the Heat and Humidity.

Today in our nation’s captial the high is 98 degrees…with the heat index it’s going to feel like 102.

So, how do we beat the heat?

As a parent I like to embrace everyday as an opportunity for adventure…an opportunity to make memories for our future.  It’s the hottest day of the year…so why not go on an ice cream adventure?  Turn the slide in our backyard into a waterslide with the hose.

If you’re really up for an adventure and really want to escape the heat…you could take a trip to Lurey Caverns in the Shenandoah Valley.  Inside the caves it’s 70 degrees!!!!

If you’d rather not have to go anywhere FamilyFun.com has some great ideas too!
