Staying Hydrated During Summer

We are in the heart of the summer and the temperatures just keep rising. This week the temperature is supposed to be in the triple digits every single day. The moment you walk outside, you’re HOT. But you can’t stay inside all the time either, especially with a family. We have to get out, get some fresh air and have some fun. So when we do head outside, whether it’s to go to the playground or go to the neighborhood pool, we just have to remember to always have drinks with us.

hydrationtogo-01I do feel like I’m always having a #momfail when it comes to this task. I forget to grab a bottle of water, a sports bottle of Lennox’s favorite drink or any beverage before running out the door – but then as soon as we are out and about, we’re all thirsty. So there have been countless times where we have to run into the local CVS to grab some drinks.


CVS Pharmacy is one of the spots that we stop, since it’s always convenient. When I was out the other day, without a drink (shocking, I know!), I ran into CVS Pharmacy for a few things and went to grab an Iced Tea (my preference over water.). There are about 10 types of sweet tea when you go anywhere in the south – so I decided to grab a few different ones to try out; Honest Tea and Gold Peak.


Then later that week, Lennox really wanted to play catch outside, but boy was it hot – 103 degrees at 6pm! I couldn’t really say no since we hadn’t gotten much outside time the last few days, so we got our softball gloves and headed outside. 


She is finally starting to catch the ball, rather than dodge the softball! She got a super cute Hello Kitty softball glove and softball for her birthday and has really enjoyed using it so far. I see some T-Ball games in her future, but maybe I’ll wait until the weather gets a little cooler!

Once we were done playing catch, we were HOT so it was time to grab our drinks to cool off and stay hydrated.  


If you are out and need to stop somewhere to grab a drink to stay hydrated, make sure to stop by CVS Pharmacy and pick up some Honest Tea, Gold Peak Tea, vitaminwater or smartwater. Also, to save more – CVS Pharmacy is now having a sale, 4/$5.00 (any combination) with $2 ExtraBucks when you use your ExtraCare card (offer available through 7/25). At that price you can stock up your fridge for all the summer fun you are going to have this year! If you don’t already have a CVS ExtraCare card – make sure you sign up for one – it’s quick, easy and best of all FREE!

    Oh, my! Staying hydrated is a tough one for us, especially in the Texas heat. I TRY to drink more and more water all the time. By the time I go to bed at night I guzzle 20-30 ounces. I really should be doing that during the day. I LOVE Honest Tea so much. (they have a lemonade/tea split!)

    I worked at CVS for two years in high school, I practically lived on the store brand cheese crackers and Arizona green tea with honey. Even now (a few… ahem… years) later drinking that tea brings back memories of my friends there
