Hooray! It is officially spring. Smell ya later, winter.
I don’t know about you, but I am certainly ready to get outside again to see the sunshine. We’ve had a lot of rain here and that has kept everyone inside a lot more than we’d like. On the bright side, I can see signs of spring everywhere so warm weather must be getting close.
With that, I’ve created this roundup to give us all some more spring in our step as we go from puffy coats to zip ups!
This spring activity roundup is organized into five main categories. Find a category that best fits your style and get ready for some fun.
