Friday to Friday
Are you ready for Spring Break? If you’ve got kids, you can never be too prepared for the vacation that could very well set the precedence for summer break. I’ve got some ideas for you…
Tons of photos (to prove you were the fun family, right?), staycations (camping in your backyard, with S’mores over the grill or firepit. Why not.) Movie trilogies. Day trips. Matinees. This Spring Break is going to rock, right? Right!
Here’s a few more things to keep you busy over the next week:
