We witnessed our first robin of the year in our front yard a couple of days ago, and my little one, without hesitation, exclaimed, “Spring is in the air!” With the beginning of Spring, comes the tribulations of King Winter’s last bouts of snow which are textbook here on the Colorado front range, but isn’t nice to know that warmer days, colorful flowers and less layers are not far off? As we gear up for Spring Break, the Easter holiday, and warmer weather, it’s great to have some events in our back pocket to support good causes, meet new people in our community and enjoy Colorado!
