  1. We just had my grand son sleep over a couple days! We went fishing,played ball and got to shoot his bee bee gun! He had a great time!

  2. My son spends a lot of time at our local Nature Center. He recently had a class about Earth Day and next month he has a class about Spring Birds. In the summer, we will go to the Detroit Zoo, Henry Ford Museum, and Greenfield Village.

  3. We do all sorts of things all year round. We are planning a camping trip soon, and hopefully we will be able to see some family and maybe even travel to some educational destinations (there is a really cool train to ride in Colorado!). We also will be working on a lot of home and building projects together once it warms (and dries) up.

  4. We have a huge trip coming up this summer. Super excited ��

  5. I’ll be out enjoying my backyard.

  6. We are going to the beach and camping.

  7. It's an exciting & busy spring/summer for us: Our oldest is graduating from college in a few weeks! And already has a job lined up to begin in NYC in mid-July! Our youngest has a roommate moving in soon after that. Then we'll be traveling to Denver to attend a friend's wedding. Also have tickets for a few concerts. -amweeksoc at comcast dot net

  8. Hoping to do some camping and hiking.
