Maybe I am writing too much about ways to find fun during the winter, but for some reason, it has been a top priority for me as my boys are growing up and it seems like winter storms, and low temperatures keep us inside of our home.

We are thinking of taking a small spring break this year, but in the meantime, we have to continue to keep our fun going during the winter. With kids is very hard, and with active boys and add high function autism we have to come up with some fun and entertaining ideas.

Is about creating memories and bringing out smiles and laughter when the weather is cold and dangerous to enjoy.
