With temperatures soaring to 92 degrees, the best thing to do in Toledo, Ohio, on July 22 was hit the pool. And after enduring media heat in New York City, Katie Holmes did just that while visiting her hometown-cooling off with her daughter Suri, 6, at the home of her parents, Martin and Kathy. Says family acquaintance Candace Morel: "Katie has two very devoted parents."

So does Suri. One month after Holmes, 33, stunned Cruise, 50, with her decision to end their five-year marriage, both stars are finding their way as single parents. The Ohio visit followed a father-daughter reunion on July 17 in New York City, where the actor was "really excited" to see Suri after a month apart, says an observer.

By July 19 Suri was back with her mom after a quick East Hampton trip with her dad. Cruise then flew to London for work on his thriller All You Need Is Kill, while Holmes is set to hit Broadway in the comedy Dead Accounts. Both parents are prepping for their little girl's first day of school. "Tom will work with Katie" to reduce any stress for Suri, says a source. "They both love their daughter."
