Entertainment, my little man and I were both super excited to watch them!

Make Easter Special with Kinder

Kinder is a huge part of my children's lives.  A Kinder Egg comes out on a rainy day... when there isn't much else to do.  Or as a way to celebrate a special moment or accomplishment.  When my children are older, they'll see a Kinder Egg in store and smile...memories.  That's what we, as parents strive for isn't it?  We want our children to remember all those special little moments that happened throughout their childhood.

5 Sugar Free Easter Gift Ideas
