The country is in the grip of some serious July heat right now and Beyonce documented her cooling off process in her favorite manner -- with photos. Bey shared some more images from the holiday weekend, feasting on Mr. Softee treats and visiting a park with daughter Blue Ivy, among other things.

Bey posed in front of a sweet ride in patriotic shorts.

Beyonce and Blue visited a park, just like your average mom and daughter. It's so adorbs to see Bey in the mom role, holding her little angel's hand. Bey x Blue? Presh!

Beyonce goofed off in front of a Mister Softee truck, a true signpost of the summer season. We love her balloon head ornament. It's not often that we see Bey in such a silly mode, so we relish when it happens.

Even Bey enjoys a dipped cone during the summer swelter. Check out her leopard-print iPhone case, too. Bey makes the summer heat look good.
