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

  2. 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!

  3. I love that during summer there are so many fun and different activities to do in Scottsdale!

  4. I love the more relaxed schedule with my husband & boys, days at the pool, smoothies, and lots of movie watching.

  5. I love having a reason to travel on weekends in order to escape the heat! Gives our family the chance to see places we normally wouldn’t consider going to for short weekend trips.

  6. We just moved here from Seattle and are looking forward to our first summer and fun activities!

  7. Loovvee the freedom without a strict schedule…love getti ng to choose how our say will look versus just following routine.

  8. We love playing in the pool, splash pads, and other water activities! My favorite part though are warm evenings making s’mores around the fire pit and star gazing 🙂

  9. Love all 3 on Facebook and I downloaded! WHOO HOO! Summer — pool time!! No school! Lots of plans! 🙂

  10. Summer is the essence of childhood memories- so many things to do, friends to play with and fun vacations to take!

  11. I love summer because we get to spend all day at the pool, eat Popsicles, play at the splash pads, and chow down on fresh summer fruit every day. Summer in Phoenix is my favorite season.

  12. I follow these on Facebook: Scottsdale Moms Blog, Out of Africa, and Arizona Science Center.

  13. Downloaded the summer guide! I’m so excited to have lots of fun activities to do as the temps rise!
