Cooling down on a hot summer day

We are in a stretch of 90’s with very high humidity.  The only way we can play outside is if we can stay cool.  My kids, especially Maggie, are always asking for treats.  I do my best to keep them healthy, and thanks to Emeals, I found a great summer treat for them.
