    Today we hit the playground and will be planting some seeds after nap time. Seeds were free in a grab bag I received, using egg shells , using bought soil. As close to $0 as possible for a fun day for us!

    Well we like to have picnics in the park, go to the Parent Link Center, have story time either outside or in if its raining, we go for walks to the pond and do arts and crafts

    I love feeding the ducks at burnaby lake or going on the miniature train.

    We really haven’t had spring here yet in PEI but one of my favorite activities with my great grands is blowing bubbles. I think all children love this and it is really neat when the bubbles go in the breeze.

    well Spring is only just starting here (AB) just got rid of the last (hopefully!) of the snow so I don’t feel we’re in the middle of Spring but rather at the beginning. 🙂 I’m looking forward to BBQs with my grandchildren, running around the garden and going for walks for an ice-cream or such.

    We are heading to the Zoo is a couple of weeks! We have also been out bike riding, and I have tried to play soccer with my little guys, even if they just mostly stare at me while I chase the ball!

    When my children were young, I took them for walks to the back of our farm and it was like a discovery expedition. I think we all thoroughly enjoyed this and it usually happened on Sunday afternoon, /when my husband was left home with the youngest.
    We would discover pussy willows, acorns and sometimes even berries. It was a leisurely walk in the warm sun with a breeze usually blowing cool air on us,
