    I love the never ending good excuse to eat ice cream everyday! In 115 degrees, ice cream is like water…you just need it:-)

    All the great water activities are my favorite part of summer! Swimming in the pool, going to the gorgeous lakes surrounding the valley, & playing at the great water parks around town!
