THINGS TO DO! Weekend of March 22-24, 2019

Spring has sprung!

We are inching closer to spring break, Easter and longer days.  We had our own early spring vacation and got a taste of the warm weather while down in Florida. That was hard to leave. Even though it was 88 and humid on our last day. I felt a shock to the system when I came back to 40 degree weather! But the temperature keeps climbing and I feel like we are really leaving winter behind.

Now that I said that, it’s going to snow next week, you know that right?

The weekend is mixed- and Sunday is looking to be like the better day to spend outside. You can break out our spring bucket list or our playground guide for that day! Otherwise, you can find plenty to do all weekend on our calendar below.

I am currently putting together our Easter guide, and I will also be working on a spring break guide. Also on the horizon will be a little how-to guide for Disney. Keep an eye out for all of that coming soon!

Have a great weekend!

**Please check before you head out that an event is still happening. Winter is officially here and things do get canceled/delayed/postponed when there is bad weather. I cannot always update the calendar with cancellations, so it is important that you click on the links provided or call before you head out.
