Beautiful, sun-shiney weather is here at long last, and we plan to spend every waking minute outside soaking it up by the bucketful. Luckily, there are so many fabulous outdoor activities going on to keep us busy -- failing that, tinkering in the backyard garden or taking a bike ride around the neighborhood fill in splendidly :)
