Summer is serious in Las Vegas! With temperatures reaching 125 degrees we take a lot of precautions as parents with our children’s safety in the heat. No, we don’t stay inside all day in the air conditioning, however, we do choose how and when we go outside!
Most mornings in the summer we get up early to enjoy the outdoors. The boys have water tables and a sand pit in the backyard. We go to the park, play in splash pads, and walk the dogs before 10 AM. By 10 AM the temperature can easily be 95 degrees, so that’s the time we do our indoor play. When the boys are outside, even though it’s not during the high heat, I put sunscreen and hats on them. These simple blue hats from Honest Co. go with most of the boys’ summer outfits and have SPF 50 built in! They’re also waterproof for the beach, splash pad, and water table fun my sons’ have every summer!
The hats fold up small and can fit easily in my diaper bag for busy days and trips. When we went to Israel they came in so handy!
Another way we have fun in the summer is swim classes. We actually do swim classes year round at Water Wings Swim School. They have indoor heated pools. Ben just moved up a level and is so proud! We go 1-2 times a week. I still get in the pool with Ben, but next month when he turns 3 I won’t need too I the water with him, so I will start Adam too. While we currently don’t have a pool, we are looking to move to a house with a pool so swim gear is so necessary. Even though Ben is potty trained I do still put a swim diaper on him and I love the swim diapers from Honest Co. They come in many sizes and cute prints, which is Honest Co.’s specialty.
When the boys’ are swimming even though the pool is inside I don’t want them catching cold, so they wear a swim shirt to the pool. It’s also a great cover up for the beach, outdoor pools, and at the splash pad. I don’t want them to get a sunburn!
