Itâs seven oâclock on Monday morning. The buses are picking up kids for school and the cars are leaving the driveways. The remaining families are rushing around trying to find homework sheets, briefcases, favorite pairs of shoes, travel coffee mugs, or lunch bags. At your house, there might be yelling. There might be an alarm going off that is supposed to remind you to leave on time. There might be a dog following at your heels until the second you close the door and head to work. On a hectic morning like this, you are lucky if there is food on the table. Wait, you didnât forget about breakfast, right?
The dogs are barking, the birds are chirping, and somehow we have finally emerged from the long, cold winter to a bright, sunshiney spring. Itâs time to get outside, breathe in the fresh air, and make good use of the gorgeous weekends ahead. One of our favorite things to do in spring is gather the family and head to a local park for a relaxing picnic.
