Staying cool outside during summer

This is my first summer after being diagnosed with chiari so I now understand that the heat is not good and why I always felt so miserable after being outside in the sun. I have 3 little kids so they are always wanting to be outside. I am looking for ways to stay cool I have an umbrella that I am using and an ice pack on my neck but it warms up very fast. I am in Iowa so it's very hot and humid this week after a lot of rain.

Anything that has worked for others would love to hear? Thank you
