The Weekend Round-Up April 16 & 17

Hope you have been enjoying this crazy warm spring weather! I was so excited to pull out the lawn furniture this week and enjoy the super sunny days this week. We did end up getting a little too much sun this week with a couple of pink little noses to prove it. Hopefully the sun will continue to shine this weekend. Remember that if your looking for some fun Easter events to attend with the family, check your city and surrounding cities websites. Spring events like Brunch with the Easter Bunny, local Egg Hunts, bowling and skating events with the bunny should be popping up everywhere.

Lots of free events this weekend, here's just a little of the fun that's happening this weekend.
