We asked our team of East Bay parents what they like to do when it is too hot to do anything and, not surprisingly, they had some wonderful ideas.

Be outside early. Julie, mom of four littles, suggests getting up and out of the house as soon as possible so they can be in and out before the sweaty crowds arrive. She encourages the kids to move quickly with a breakfast of donuts or bagels at the beach.
Eat all the ice cream. Apply frozen treats early and often to keep your own bodies from melting.
Sit yourself in front of a fan. Do not touch anyone. This is what I'll be doing! Wake me up when it dips below 80 degrees again. I carry this one around the house and recharge it when needed.
