A HUGE list of fun things to do in Spring -- great ideas for Spring Break and ways to make memories with your kids!

After this wild & wacky winter, we should all pat ourselves on the back :)

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

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!
