july

It is hot out there and we are just doing everything we can to stay cool! We’ve got your list of things to do around town here. And good luck to everyone trying to make it through the hottest month of the year.

Since summer is here and there is nothing we can do to stop it….read through the Camp Guide at Phoenix Moms and The Surviving Summer Guide on Scottsdale Moms.

All the 4th of July Events can be found in this one spot……we are so excited to see so many celebrations happening on the 4th of July.

Are there any events that we haven’t covered or do you know of a future family friendly event our community should know about? Feel free to submit your event HERE
