Photo Friday: Making The Best Of It

We are not really beach  or hot weather people. As in, with 2 blondes and 2 redheads we are a sunscreen companies best customer. My kids sweat, a lot. They turn red and cranky and want to find air conditioning asap. They are not fans of super heat, but if we stayed home during the hottest months of the year we would miss out on so many amazing opportunities and travel experiences.

So, we make the best of it! Last September we headed to Charleston, a humid, hot city on the water. A gorgeous city, but hot. Did I mention hot? We packed up some hats, the bathing suits, lots of sunscreen, and took sweaty pictures of our kids. We found fountains to splash in and ice cream to eat. With lots of water, a double stroller and snacks they enjoyed themselves in spite of the soaring temperatures.
