I don’t know about you, but the weather over the past few days has totally befuddled me. I am not sure if I should put on shorts or keep my coat on. Really, I am not complaining, because my children and I have enjoyed the warmer weather. I hope you and your family were able to get outside this past weekend. Just in case you are looking for something to do in and around the Madison County area, I have got a running list started for you this week and am adding more to the Kid Madison Event Picks Calendar. Let’s start planning now. Remember to always call to confirm the event.
