We may have cold, but at least the sun peaks out and shines every few hours. It is even bold enough to bring some heat. When I was not indoors this weekend cooking, cleaning and doing laundry, I was able to spend some time outside. Although we stayed close to home this past weekend, it was nice getting outside for some play time, because my children have been going a little stir crazy. Is stir crazy running wild in your house? Find something on the Kid Madison Event Picks Calendar to do and calm that beast. Remember to always call to confirm the event.
