OK…didn’t I JUST post about the weekend?! This week flew right on by – wow!!  Here are your five things to do this weekend.  Some of these are local to Kansas City residents, but you’ll also find some that you can do right where you live!  It is spring and gorgeous outside, so it might be great to just get out and fly a kite,  have a picnic or even go a nature hike.  Whatever you choose – enjoy your family time.
