  • Water play is always a good thing. We use squirt guns, water balloons, kid sprinklers, kiddie pools, and it will hurt nobody if your young one runs around in just a diaper in really hot either (use sunscreen obviously and keep them hydrated). Mine also love hikes in the woods in the cool shade chasing butterflies.

  • Sometimes in California it literally gets too hot to go outside lol (today is one of those days) so we've been in the house all day...maybe when it gets closer to dusk we'll take a walk or something but right now you could fry an egg on the sidewalk lol
