Somebody Shade Me

Somebody Shade Me
Story:

What do you do when the trees are gone? You create artificial shade. This family enjoys outdoor time and decided to remove a few trees to improve the view. Uh-oh, those same trees that blocked their view also blocked the hot Western sun. Now their relaxing outdoor entertainment space is too hot to handle. Quick, somebody shade me!
