And what would summer be if we couldn’t spend time in our bathing suits? Lather up the kids with sunscreen and enjoy the water park in the middle of Kierland Commons. Kids can run around in the water show and enjoys the Arizona sun. Afterwards, the family can head on over to Cold Stone Creamery for a little summer treat!
