Well...I'm thinking spring may finally have shown up...it sure took its time this year! With that being said, it is now time for some spring cleaning. I tend to clean my garage and driveway and paint both of them...makes them look for a few months anyway.
All in all it is just nice to be able to open the windows and allow some fresh clean air to flow in and refresh our homes.
Below you will find some great activities during the month of April to get out and enjoy:
