Mom Index’s Top Arizona July Activities


I hope you enjoyed my first guest post in June.  It’s been a lot of fun searching for all the wonderful events and activities throughout the Valley.  The Phoenix area is such fantastic place to raise children and to stay active during the entire year.

Mom Index is growing and we are excited to be the comprehensive resource for Valley moms and parents.  In addition to offering a great events calendar, Mom Index keeps you informed about everything related to raising kids in the Valley of the Sun.
