Spring is here and it is my all time favorite time of the year. I love the blossoms on the trees, flowers starting to bloom, warmer weather, and the warmth of the sunshine coming through my windows. There is just something about everything becoming so fresh and the bright colors of spring that fills my soul. My littles and I love spring activities, I would even dare say that we are obsessed. Everything from playing outside to having picnics and everything in-between. We have a few favorite Spring time activities that we love to do and we are excited to share them all with you so hopefully you can enjoy them like we can!
|| FEED THE DUCKS ||
Feeding the ducks is something that has quickly become one of my favorite things to do with my kids. I recently learned that it is way better for the ducks if you feed them oats instead of bread so also keep that in mind. We have a little pond just down the road from our house and it is something easy that we can go run and do without much planning either. It gets our entire family outside and is something that has zero stress to it unless the Seagulls are crazy that day ha.
|| PICNIC OUTSIDE ||
This is something that King is obsessed with and asks for almost daily. It is something that is super easy as well because if you can’t tell we are all about simplicity and easy at our house. King loves to to get a bag/tote out of the mudroom and fill it full of all of his favorite snacks & food. He then will carry the tote that is jam packed outside, well let’s be honest more like drag it and we put out one of our Gathre mats and enjoy a little snack on the grass!
|| DANCE PARTIES ||
Spring weather in Utah is kind of crazy, it snowed last week… it was crazy everything was completely covered. When the weather puts a damper on playing outside we love to scoot all the furniture to the edges of our living room and we turn on some of our favorite songs and dance! My littles think it is the coolest thing ever to move all the furniture and to party!
Going in and out of outside is what we do all spring & summer. I absolutely love it but also struggle with seasonal allergies so that makes it really hard. We have put some things in our home to really help to keep our allergies at bay and it has been game changing. We have room air purifiers from Aprilaire in our living room and master bedroom. They are the best because they have a smart setting on them so you can turn them on and then not have to remember to do anything with it besides change the filter every so often. We always laugh because we can hear it kick on when I cook bacon and Zach always says that we know that it is working. The air purifiers remove pollutants, pollen, and allergy triggers and I have noticed a huge difference in my seasonal allergies.
If you struggle with seasonal allergies try an air purifier! I love that it is something that not only helps with my allergies, but also improves the overall health of my family and home.
