Lot's of fun at the Easter Egg Hunt this weekend. Gave out over 2400 eggs and some Golden Egg prizes! Kids loved the bubbles almost as much as the eggs. Best part of the weekend was baptizing three of our kids. Makes the resurrection come alive again when you see kids taking next steps with God.

Spring Break Parenting Ideas

Last year someone suggested that we provide some ideas for parents about what to do with kids home from school during Spring Break. Apparently boredom is rampant in Florida! Anyway, here are some possibilities.

Tampa Bay Parenting Magazine has some suggestions like a Picnic in the Park, fishing, fossil hunting, sand castle building, etc.

Wiregrass Shops in Wesley Chapel has a Spring Break Carnival on Wednesday, April 8th.

Thursday April 9th from 9:30 - 1:30, Jennifer Allinder is hosting a CATB Mom's Day at the Park. She says, "We will have different folks bring sidewalk chalk, balls, bubbles, etc. Please let me know if you can make it ( Everyone will be responsible for bringing your own lunch, snacks, and drink. It will be at Safety Harbor City Park, 940 7th Street S. in Safety Harbor."

Other possibilities include many of the local attractions like MOSI, Florida Aquarium, Lowery Park Zoo, Rolly Pollies, Pump It Up Party, and the Oldsmar Spray Park. Also, Florida has many good State Parks within reasonable driving distance and are a very inexpensive day out.

Good luck and have a ball!
