It seems to me that we are always talking about making memories with our children during the summer. Or over the Christmas holidays. But memory-making lasts year ’round. Spring can be the time to burst outside and enjoy. To build a new tradition. Here are some ideas for how to make memories this spring.
Each day of our lives we make deposits in the memory banks of our children. ~ Charles R. Swindoll
Annual Azalea Photo– pick a spot near a beautiful blaze of spring color and make your picture with your children. Every year.

Each year, when the azaleas are in full bloom in front of her house, I get a phone call. “It’s time to get out the quilt!” she says.
