Stay cool this summer with these great tips


Its summertime!!! School's out, and its hot out there. Here are just some tips to stay healthy & Have fun. Feel free to add your in the comments.
*Drink lots of water!!!
* Use the sunscreen on yourself and your children. Re-apply after like 2 hours or when you see the skin pink.
* get in the shade if you start feeling dizzy, light-headed or just unwell.
* Drink that water!! You need to stay hydrated. smile emoticon
*if you are bare-foot: watch where you step! Bees are on those flowers and they will sting if you step on them.
*Sunglasses, wear them
*when the kids are in the pool, keep an eye on them! Even if they can swim. 
*When barefoot: that asphalt is HOT! you will burn your feet.
* Sand is hot, it will burn your feet!
* Do not leave kids or pets in the vehicle while you go into a store.
*Have fun, but be careful

Extra tips for enjoying summer:
-don't let food sit out that should be cool. After you serve, put it away!!!!!
-*** Note: I have not tried this particular hint**** Listerine: the BEST way to get your feet ready for summer. Sounds crazy but it works! Mix 1/4c Listerine (any kind but I like the blue), 1/4c vinegar and 1/2c of warm water. Soak feet for 10 minutes and when you take them out the dead skin will practically wipe off!
-Cinnamon in the Sandbox - It keeps the bugs away!
-Easily remove sand from your hands by "washing" them with BABY POWDER! This works great for cleaning kids up after playing in the sand box as well!
