There is still a good number of summer days left for us here in Iowa, that means we still have time to have fun!

We are all trying to escape the heat this year, and one of the best ways to do that is by spending some time in the water. Many of us missed out on water parks last year, but almost all major parks in and around the Cedar Valley  are open this year. Today we are going to take a look at some of them.
