Hi Hippie, sorry to hear that your day of fun was interrupted by the dd - I know how disheartening it is to feel "responsible" for affecting the fun and enjoyment of others - such a drain on our souls! But it sounds like your family supports you and is understanding....that is quite a blessing! I think it's easier to circumvent the sun issue than it is to deal with the heat. Maybe a cold compress carried in a thermal (lunchbox style) pouch in a backpack would help. And I personally think a fan - the old fashioned paper kind, or the battery powered ones - are extremely helpful and easy to carry along. Hope the weather cools off and you get some good rest tonight.
