When it comes to summer and life in South Texas, we’re always on the hunt for ways to have fun with our friends and stay cool at the same time! For us that means finding ways to keep cool in summer! And we’ve had a blast with our friends so far!
10 Ways to Stay Cool in Summer
With the temperatures heating up, we knew it was time to invite some friends over for some fun! So we got out our H2OGO! Water Slide and turned on the water! Instant fun!
The kids loved the Speed Ramp™ which gave them a smooth launch down the 18-foot slide into the drench pool at the end. And with two lanes, the kids could also hold competitions to see who picked up the most speed while staying cool!
The H2OGO! Water Slide was easy to set up and the kids were having a blast within minutes which gave the parents time to hang out a bit too!
You can pick up an H2OGO! Water Slide of your own at Toys R’Us, Amazon.com, Target.com and Walmart.com! So pick one up to be the center of your summer cool down fun. Then check out some more of our favorite ideas for staying cool during the summer!
