Summer is finally here, which means that the sun is shining (bright, may I add). It is getting hotter outside and if you enjoy spending your free time outdoors, then you are surely feeling the heat.

There is so much to do outside, walk in a park, go to the beach, hit up an amusement park, and so much more. If you ask me what is the best way to cool down, I really only have one answer... ice cream.
