March Weekend Events: Spring is in the Air! 03/02-04

It’s March, and I’m thinking an early Spring, maybe? It sure feels like we are having an early Spring season, but some say that Winter is not quite over. All I know is that it is feeling warm and I’m loving the sunshine! Along with me loving it, I’m even seeing sparrows flying around and flowers beginning to bud…there’s definitely a sense that Spring is in the air!

While we are having these warm seasonal days, why not get the family and some friends together and go explore the area. Take the kids out to play, go for a hike, and just be together! Breathe in a deep breath and enjoy the weekend!
