Our calendars have been marked for Saturday's South Bend Eggstravaganza for months. My mom and I took the kids last year and we all had a blast bouncing around from one activity to the next. The activities are seemingly endless, but it doesn't feel overwhelming. Except for when your toddler dumps over an entire basket of ceramics and they shatter across the floor. That part -- not so fun.
Whatever you get up to this weekend, enjoy the glorious weather ahead.
