Staying Icy Cool

Staying icy cool on a hot day, Aliah Mendiola uses a bag of ice for making homemade ice cream to stifle temperatures near 100-degrees Thursday at the Walla Walla YMCA in Walla Walla, Wash. The ice cream making was part of a kid's activity day that included hulu hoops, paper airplane design and flying, and GaGa ball, a type of dodge ball.

Question: What are you doing — or planning to do — this weekend to beat the heat?
