The weather has been warmer than normal in Birmingham.
- And now that school is out, I need to find things for the kids to do.
They love going to theme parks as well as to the city parks in the area. But when the weather is hot outside, I like to find indoor spaces for them to play. One of the best places to take them is to the Birmingham Public Library. Not only is it fun and educational, but it’s a comfortable air conditioned space where they can freely explore without any worries. I also like taking them to indoor playgrounds because they also have air conditioning. I believe my kids love these air conditioned spaces as well, but I must admit that deep down, I like them as well. I love that I am not sitting outside in a pavilion with no real escape from the heat. Having these air conditioned play areas is great for parents. I have met so many parents who share the same sentiments about these climate control play areas that I do. I don’t think my kids care one way or another because when they are outside playing, they move around so much that I am not sure if they even care about the heat. Plus, when they’re at the outdoor playgrounds, they’re usually running through the splash pad where they can cool off. Though I could also take advantage of the splash areas, I would rather just find a nice indoor playground and sit back in one spot and relax in the air conditioning.
