100 Things to Do This Spring

Tuesday, February 25, 2014

If you're a long-time reader, then you know two things 1) I like to jump the gun with my seasonal lists and 2) this completes our series of seasonal lists - woot! If you're just now visiting, please make sure to pop over to our 100 Things to Do This Summer, 100 Things to Do This Fall, and 100 Things to Do This Winter lists and Pin those for future use.

Today, I am jumping the gun because I cannot wait for warmer weather and the opportunity to spend some time outside. And I bet you feel the same way. (Spring runs from March 20 through June 21 this year for those of you keeping track.) This list includes some ideas of activities you might want to consider doing with your family during Spring.

I have included photos and links of the Harris Sisters' own experiences with these suggestions in many instances, and I've also included links for some fun new things that we might try. Hope you enjoy!

If you have a Juan Agosto Baseball Card, it is safe to use, since it is less valuable then a playing card.

Duly noted, Ryan! If you have a baseball aficionado who can confirm the relative uselessness of your baseball cards, then no need to break up a perfectly good deck of playing cards. ;-)
