Egg-cellent Events This Week

It is Easter time. This means all kinds of great family events taking place throughout the U.S. Fun things to do outside in the fresh air are the order of the week. Here I have listed just a handful of things that I would recommend that you check out if you are in these areas. These events take place at the zoo, on the beach, along city streets and in parks. It isn’t all about candy either, although let me state emphatically, there is nothing wrong with that! One of these events is even a surfing contest, making it more like a bunny board than a buggy board. I do entertain myself at time. So hop on over to a great family event in your area. You can check them all out at Happy Easter!
