April Fools!

Happy April! The beginning of April means spring and warmer weather. I am so ready for the sun to shine, the flowers to start blooming and to wear all my cute clothes again. Before all that can happen, we have to make it through the dreadful day that is the first of April – April Fool’s Day.
