“HOT” Tubs

107 degrees!  Really?
Ok, DFW… I think it is hot enough here!  I write this at 5:30 pm when my son is outside at football practice… yikes.  My last reminder by text was “Drink lots of water!”… we shall see.
We thought we’d escape the heat by going to Schlitterbahn in New Braunfels,
which is the largest water park in Texas.
We thought wrong-
The sweat was dripping all weekend long… in the car, in the tram, in the lines, in the water!
We started out Saturday night in the quaint town of Gruene.. an artsy, historical town
known for it’s quaint shopping, good food, live music… and sweat.
Here’s the crew-
And here’s my crew waiting to eat… typical, Big Sis “telling it like it is”, Brother trying
to get a word in and Lil Sis ignoring them both-
Dinner at the Gristmill… which is a must but AC would have been a bonus
The natives were restless-
And the day was done…
Unfortunately, I don’t have pics from the water park because…
A. Not all of my family members want to photographed in bathing suits and…
B. I was not going to bring my camera any where near running water
If you can’t stand the heat where you live…
get in the tub! 
Here is some eye candy of some fabulous bathtubs-

Here are some tips for you to stay cool from … without an air conditioner…
Just add water!!
Ball up and soak a t-shirt in the sink, wring it out, put it on and sit in a lawn chair (or other chair that lets air through to you) in
front of a fan. Re-wet as it dries. Make sure not to soak it with cold water. It can be colder than you think. Instead use lukewarm
water so you get cool without freezing. Using a synthetic shirt will ensure no “wet T-shirt” look. 

Wear a short sleeved shirt and put water on the sleeves. If there is a breeze or fan blowing on you, you can actually get cold.
Use a squirt bottle, the sink or hose if outside to keep your sleeves wet. If you are outside and wearing long pants and you
put water on your legs, the water will cool your legs.

Fill your bathtub with cool water and get in. Once you are used to the temperature, let some water out and refill with cold water. Keep doing this until you are sufficiently cold. Your body will stay cool for a long time after you get out.

Or just soak your feet in a bucket of cold water. You can do it almost anywhere and don’t have to stay in the tub. The body radiates heat from the hands, feet, face and ears, so cooling any of these will efficiently cool the body.

Hope that helps a bit… think cool thoughts:)
Until next time,
