Bundle Up
.....and visit an ice skating rink! =)
This is an especially welcome experience when you experience not only sweltering  heat, but miserable heat and poor air quality {smoke....fires =( } !!  AND....although we live in beach/pool territory, not every day can be a beach/pool day!
We are blessed to have an ice skating rink in our community with public hours from 11 - 1, and sweet friends who could meet us there!  Thanks to half-price tickets from Groupon and Entertainment Coupon books, this ended up being a quite inexpensive outing! =)

My two little men with one of Robert's most favorite friends....


My ♥Robert♥ has a need for speed.....



Make sure you wear jean when ice-skating.....even if it's really hot outside!  You'll be glad if (when) you fall & hit the ice! ; )



Obligatory group picture......love these kids!! =) 


We stopped for some health food after skating. ; )



Don't judge our restaurant choice......it's right next door to the rink!  And peer pressure is a very powerful thing! ;)

How do YOU keep it cool in the summer heat?  Link up with us!!  Other Moms are our best sources for ideas!! =)

My boys went ice skating for the first time this year, and did surprisingly well. I think it's because they roller-blade all the time. ☺

What a great way to keep cool! Hmmm...I'll be looking for a Groupon for our ice rink. LOL Thanks for sharing. Happy Monday! ☺

PS...I didn't see the linky. Is it on a different blog?

What a great idea, I always forget about ice skating. We might have to do that this summer.

That's my kind of health food... :)

Ice skating! That's a great idea, I wonder how my kids would do......

Harvest Moon by Hand said...

That's such a great idea! There's a big ice skating rink about 20 minutes from here. Would be a wonderful way to spend the afternoon. I'll need to add that to my list of things to do with the girls this summer.
