Take a tip from this grizzly bear and go for a dip in the pool. If you don't have a pool of your own, make a new friend who does!

Got some dishes or watering to do? Don't be afraid to splash around a little.

Go to the beach and make some new water-loving friends. 

Be sure to stay hydrated!

Water gun fight, anyone?

Or camp out in front of the air conditioner.
