Hello Smarties! Let’s celebrate the last day of March and the beginning of a wonderful holiday weekend. There is a lot of talk in my house about the Easter Bunny, egg hunts and the long weekend. Because it is a holiday weekend the events are not in abundance but there are several Egg Hunts that your family will enjoy. This is also a time that you can visit old favorites, Discovery Place, the Nature Museum, our many parks (going to be a beautiful weekend!) or find the fun in your own backyard. Enjoy the spring flowers, start your garden or catch a movie. Easter is the celebration of new beginnings, get out and try something new with your family. Enjoy your weekend!
Quack, Quack! Have you adopted your ducks – the grand prize is $5000 and last year the grand prize winner was a member of Team CSP/Jen Bunich. I am giving my children family Quack Packs in their Easter Baskets so we can cheer on our Ducks at the Hope Floats Duck Race on April 18. Become a member of our team and support KinderMourn by adopting your ducks today. Click here to join Team CSP/ Jen Bunich!
