101 Fun Things to Do with the Kids this Spring!

We made it -- today is the official start of Spring!

Woo hoo!

After this crazy winter, we should all pat ourselves on the back :)

Now it's time to enjoy all those things we LOVE about the season --

Birds chirping, warmer temps, the fact that it's usually still light out after dinner and being able to wear flip-flops without freezing your toes off -- plus the kids now hear a "yes" when they ask if they can wear shorts to school.

Spring is also the time to make a few memories together.

So to inspire you to push aside that spring cleaning and enjoy some time with the kids, we've got a list -- one hell of a list -- of fun ways to celebrate the season!
