Spoils for Spring
March 1, 2011 6:04 am
Happy first day of March! I don’t know about you, but I am definitely ready for spring this year. On Sunday, we had mild weather and my family had a lovely afternoon. We played outdoors, basked in the sunshine and let our creative juices flow all over the sidewalk in chalk.
To celebrate the first day of March, today we’ll be helping you prepare for the warmer weather when you get to put your love of cloth diapers on display for everyone to see. Before we know it, the weather will be warm enough for most of us to let our little ones out and about in our favorite cloth diaper and favorite BabyLegs.
To enter today’s blog giveaway, please leave a comment with your favorite springtime activity. What are you most looking forward to this spring?
Five random blog commenters will be selected as winners. Each will receive a prize pack with a bumGenius Artist Series Tiny Socialite Collection cloth diaper and a coordinating pair of BabyLegs from the newest additions to our bumGenius BabyLegs collection.
Eligible entries must be posted today, Tuesday, March 1, 2011. U.S. Residents only. Void where prohibited by law. No purchase necessary to win. Winners will be notified via e-mail.
I’m looking forward to getting out of the house and going for walks and hopefully geocaching!
I love going to the beach in the spring/summer and look forward to it even more this year as I get to introduce my new daughter to the ocean. She loves water, and I can’t wait to see her reaction to the ocean and the waves!
I am looking forward to using my BOB jogging stroller that I finally purchased. I bought the double to run with my two little ones!!! I am also looking forward to being able to hang my diapers on the line so they can sun out and smell fresh!!!
I live in southern AZ, so we are pretty spoiled with great winter and spring weather. Although, I am looking forward to nice weather during morning and early evening outdoor walks with my baby girl.
We can’t wait to plant our garden. My 2 year old son loves to help me in the garden.
Looking forward to going hiking and working in the yard/garden! I love planting flowers in all of my planters and making everything colorful after a brown and dreary winter.
BASEBALL!!! And this will be Baby B’s first season:) YAY!
My favorite springtime activity is taking picture with our blooming magnolia in the backyard…
I love getting my flowers planted!
My favorite part of spring is getting the bikes out to ride for the first time. My son loves to plant flowers, so we’re looking forward to that.

Just hanging out at the park is my favorite Spring time activity!

Our favorite thing to do in the Spring is go for nature hikes. We have some beautiful trails in our area and my son is now old enough to walk the trails himself (rather than in the carrier.)
I am most looking forward to the lack of ice and snow. Considering I’m on the Texas Gulf, we have had a lot of it.

Anything outside! Gardening, walking, playing with chalk or pinwheels. My daughter has discovered the crocuses outside and every morning we look to see if they have opened yet.
Going to the beach is our favorite activity!!! We just love getting outdoors!!
Walking, going to the park, and feeling the ocean breeze on the sunny California beaches are some of our favorite spring activities! Really looking forward to taking off a layer or two of baby clothing to show off our dazzling retail therapy BG´s …
Los Angeles, CA
Wagon rides to the park, hanging on the playground, eating a picnic lunch, and taking lots of fun outdoor pictures! Can’t wait for the weather to warm up.
I was just going to say getting outside in the sunshine doing *anything* but now I’m more inspired, and I’ll add watching my husband get our garden ready. (I have the opposite of a green thumb, so it’s for the best, really, that I do nothing more than watch… Maybe our new baby will be his helper when she gets bigger….)
We love to go hiking and on long walks with our family!
I am looking forward to planting flowers around our yard and exploring the outdoors and beach with my 19 month old son.
Sunny walks! We actually got out today for an extra special walk, since I had to pick our darling 4 month old a little early from daycare. She is loving her walks with the moby wrap on some of our local nature trails! She’d love them even MORE in a new diaper with some baby legs!
I am VERY eager to pull out the “BOB” jogger stroller and run with my little man. Can’t wait!!
i cant wait to get my newborn outside and take his pictures!!
The thing I’m looking forward to this spring is watching my first pregnancy progress. I’m really excited.
my baby!! I am due April 22, 2011, I will enjoy so many of her firsts this spring 🙂
I am most looking forward to playing outside with the kids and starting the garden again!
Favorite springtime activity is taking the little ones to campus with me to study and watching the oldest run around the ‘green’ and fly kites.
slumberpartiesbyshai at yahoo dot com.
Gardening! I hope to have a successful vegetable garden this year and I’m sure my little man will enjoy playing in the dirt.
We love to plant a vegetable and herb garden. Last year we grew our own tomatoes, peppers, squash and a large variety of herbs. I love that my boys learn where food really comes from while enjoying the beautiful outdoors.
Since spring is our shortest season in Texas, I’m looking forward to a few weeks of open windows before the blazing hot begins. Also, we’re expecting an April baby, so that’s really the thing I’m looking forward to most!
Our favorite springtime activity is to open the windows and let the fresh air in!
Thanks for the contest!
We’re looking forward to going biking as soon as this cold snap is over! Out on the road, baby in back of husband, diaper bag and a sack lunch on a backpack on my back, and beautiful scenery everywhere you look!
I love taking picnics to the park and having hill rolling races! We also love to take blocks of ice to the parks and ride them down the hills! I can’t wait!!

My husband and I LOVE going to Maple Sugar Shacks for breakfast and freshly made maple syrup! Now that we have our new little addition to make us a family of 3, we will have to introduce him to the yumminess of Sugar Shacks!!!
When the sun finally comes out, we love to go to the park and play after a long rainy winter! Or, go to the library and feed the ducks and take a walk in the park behind the library!
We have been having spring weather already (I live in south Mississippi). I enjoy going for walks, watching my son play outside, leaving the windows open and hanging clothes outside (love the smell). I also love that we will be getting our garden ready-looking forward to some fresh veggies!
We’re simply looking forward to getting out and taking walks as a family.
My parents have a farm with a huge field of wild flowers. Last year, my son was able to toddle around and pick some flowers. I can’t wait to go again this year and take our field guide so he can learn about the flora 🙂
Since bubs is older this year (he’s now 13mths) I like to push him in the stroller with hubby up to the park.. He giggles so much on the swing I just love it, so the warmer weather will make it so much more fun to do this… can’t wait for family spring time with my two fav boys!
I’m looking forward to three things about Spring!
1. Walks after school withthe hubby and little stinker.
2. Stinker swinging again, which he loves to do!
3. Playing in the drive when we come home instead of vanishing into the house.
Oh, and I guess I’m also looking forward to graduating with my masters in reading education in May!
The smell in the air get’s us out and moving! Kiteboarding!!!
Playing in the creek in our back yard!
I live in Indiana. We’ve had a rough winter. I just want to get out of the house to go for a walk this spring. That’s all I’m asking for! We went on a walk today because somehow 45 degrees felt like a heatwave!
I can’t wait for yard sales to start and my whole family loves to play in the yard with the dog!
Baby girl is our first baby and this will be her first Spring…can’t wait to share all these fun experiences with her! Definitely love being able to go for walks and can’t wait to start having picnics at the park! Also want to start going to the farmer’s market!
We love to play outside! Sliding down the slide is so much more fun when you don’t have to worry about landing in a puddle at the bottom. 🙂
I love taking walks around our lake with the kids in the spring in the sunshine and watching the ducks. Also, the quietness of the house while I’m cooking dinner and the kids are outside playing is sublime!
My favorite springtime activity is being in the sunshine where we can garden, fly kites, go for long walks, and just enjoy the fresh air! It can’t come soon enough!
Ooh. I like going for walks. And trying to garden even though I kill all the plants
Growing a garden!
I’m looking forward to the spring fruits and veggies, and introducing them to my kiddo in a few months!
Love to hear the birds chirping and savor the smell of that first spring cut of grass.
We’re so excited for this spring to arrive because our first son is due April 3rd!(our first to cloth diaper!) and for our favorite outings on sunny days we love feeding bread to the ducks/geese and playing at the park! thebaileys4@gmail dot com
it’s simple, but i love being able to go for walks! been stuck in the house a lot this winter!

I cannot wait to just be outside, walking with the baby, going to the park, just anything to be out of doors.
Spring is my favorite time of the year! I love the warmer weather, flowers, and longer days. I am looking forward to being able to spend more time outside with the kids–walking to the park and library, going to the zoo, and weekend bike-rides with the whole family.

I’m looking forward to gardening, going to the zoo, and taking the kids to the park again. We all love spending time outside, in the sunshine!
I am looking forward to planting a garden! We just moved to the country so I can finally start growing some of my own veggies. I also can’t wait to get outside and walk with my son. He wasn’t walking by the time it started snowing so everything outside is new and exciting to him! Thank you so much for the giveaway! I just ordered my first 3 bg 4.0s and can’t wait to get them…another spring activity to look forward to! 😉
I look forward to the kids getting to play outside again! it gets too dreary outside all winter, and I don’t just want them to sit and watch tv. We bought a house with a big yard for a reason, c’mon spring! Let’s dry the lawn out!
Getting my garden ready

I am excited to take my daughter for walks and to work on my plants and flowers outside. Hurry up and get here, Spring!
I am looking forward to sitting on my porch and sharing meals with my family in the beautiful weather. lesalia17 at zoominternet dot net
Being able to get outside with my boys! MN winters are long and cold!
There is a local garden that we visit, then normally go for ice cream after walking through the flowers
My FAVORITE thing to do though is take a trip to STL and visit the Zoo. The zoo there is amazing! (and even better in the spring time)
my kids love to pick out what diaper baby brother will wear each change! tried almost all the diapers out there and none compare to bumgenuis! love it!
My favorite spring time activity is heading to the Dallas Arboretum with my family and my friend’s family. We go during Dallas Blooms to admire the tulips and stand in awe of God’s (and the gardners’) creativity and handiwork. My friend and I both enjoy casual photography and take turns capturing pictures of each other’s families.
We’re getting chickens this spring, and planting our garden. email@example.com
Definitly lookin forward to going to the park and just playing outside in general. :)And looking forward to showing off my baby girl’s cute fluffy butt.
Taking our new baby boy for walks in the park and to go to the beach and swimming!
This mama and her family like hiking! playing outdoors! getting ready for summer…… Love this time of year. this spring we want to get ready to go climb a mountain this summer!! And this year my bigger girls get to introduce their baby brother to the zoo and the beach and whatever other adventures it may bring!
Getting outside for walks with my baby. The fresh air is so nice and it definitely helps him sleep!
I’m looking forward to finally taking my baby for walks. She was born in November and it was always either too cold, too rainy, or too snowy.
We love walking in the park and watching the leaves grow and buds blossom.
Just being outside! Love it!!!
I am most looking forward to the flowers! I love puttering around in the garden!

I love to watch my sun play on the back porch in nothing but a diaper. He would start at 50 degrees outside, if he could.
Going to the zoo! I can’t wait to take our little one and see his reaction to all the animals. 🙂
Planting and playing in my garden while my son plays with sticks, dirt, and his water table!
One of my favorite things to do is go see all the Tulip fields and take pictures of the kids in them. The colors are always so amazing.

I love to take walks on the boardwalk with the kids.
We love splashing in the puddles once the snow starts to melt!

My favorite spring activity is growing veggies! We’re moving right now, so it’s going to have to wait another few weeks until we close on our new house, but we’re still looking forward to it.
I cannot wait for it to be as bit warmer so we can enjoy our small local zoo – in spring we can feed the giraffes. And that is pretty fun, especially for the kids.
Happy almost spring time to you guys.

Our favorite springtime activity is to go for morning jog in the bright sunshine!
Food garden planting time!
Playing outside. Going to the park. Swimming. My little Princess enjoys all outside activities! She loves to be outside!
I look forward to going for walks with my two kids, as well as my two dogs! Definitely stress free!
Going for walks, playing at the park, bike rides, trips to the zoo, picnics, and ice cream cones!
I love gardening and just spending time outside with the kids. Thankfully its already warm here in GA so I am already hard at work on my garden :).
I can’t wait to take my two boys to romp, play and discover outside! It is actually 60 today, crazy KS weather we have! Bring on spring!
I’m ready to get my two boys outside to romp, play and discover. Our favorite thing to do is take walks around the yard and see what animal prints we can find! Today is 60 out, KS weather has been crazy this year!
This will be the first year our son is big enough to go outside and ‘help’ in the garden, so that’s really exciting for us. We also can’t wait ly to take him to the zoo and grants farm. I think he’ll actually ‘get’ it this year. His reactions should be priceless and maybe my garden w ill actually survive this year. We like to take the extra veggies to the food pantry in town and id like to bring them more than lettuce this year.

Our first spring with a baby. I can’t wait to experience spring through a child’s eyes – splashing in puddles (do they make Wellies for a 9 month old?), looking for worms, watching the Robins nest on our back deck and the babies hatch, spring storms (that started in January in STL), and all the other wonders of nature!
P.S. Props to the West Co staff – we visited on Saturday with tons of questions about carseats and carriers and they were fantastic, as always. I left WAY more informed and they convinced my husband to give up the Bjorn for the Ergo (I needed some reinforcements on that one!). Thanks, ladies!!
I like to hula hoop outside! 🙂

Walks, the park, being able to see up and down my street without snowbanks in the way! And my 2.5yo is excited to stomp in the puddles. Oh, and BIRTHDAYS! All 4 of us have spring birthdays and I love celebrating them. 🙂
I can not wait to get out and start working in the yard – and introduce my baby to the great outdoors! He is only 5 mo and hasn’t spent much time outside yet.
My favorite spring activity is getting to play at the park. My toddler can get all his energy out and get some fresh air!
I can’t wait to go fishing! We live on a lake and I’ve been waiting for the ice to melt to get out there. This year my daughter can spend more time outside, too, since she won’t be a newborn.

HIKING!!!! oh we can’t wait to get outside, get fresh air and smell the trees!

This spring is special to me since I am due with a baby boy in June. These next few months are the last days when it will be just DD, me, and DH alone. What special times! This spring I want to give her as much of myself as I can, before she has a sibling and must share mama and dada! 🙂 cristenhyde at gmail dot com
I’m looking forward to lounging in the hammock in the back yard while the kids (5 and 18 months) play. Soaking up some vitamin D while listening to happy kids is the best way to recover from the cold winter months 🙂
i am so looking forward to taking walks outside and taking my three kids to the park – without being all bundled up! mmmm, and that fresh spring air! love it! email@example.com
Walking my big kids to school again (and getting to push the little ones in the stroller.) Trips to the park and nature walks (looking for signs of spring). Just being outdoors again without having to bundle everyone up!

I can’t wait for walks to the park and to start our garden!
I am looking forward to going to the zoo and not needing an umbrella!
I love the blooming flowers and warm evening walks.
My favorite springtime activity is planting seeds and getting out into the garden again! We moved, so we have no garden this year, but I am planning out what I can grow in containers on the deck, and am so excited to introduce my baby girl to playing in the dirt!
I’m excited to show my son all the pretty flowers in our yard. We already have crocuses!
I just want to be outside and have the warm sun on my skin. I want to be able to go for walks, go to the park, play in the pool….so many dreams…I have a feeling it will be awhile as I live in MN! Heather: firstname.lastname@example.org

My baby will turn 1 in May. I am looking forward to exploring the outdoors through the eyes of a baby!
We’re looking forward to working in the garden again! We have a veggie garden in back and a flower garden in the front, both of which are just begging for some digging!
looking forward to playing with my kiddos! They can finally walk and play and we’re going to have a blast discovering the yard this year!
My favorite springtime activity is going for walks. I love this time with our family. We have a great time talking and just enjoying the outdoors. Our DD loves stopping at all the playgrounds in our neighborhood.
so, so, many–to name a few, getting OUTSIDE to let my son run wild and get his energy out (parks and zoo), no coats!, and this will be my first spring where i can SUN DIPES 🙂
Since DD just turned 1, I am thrilled to watch her experience her first real Spring. We just bought a pushable tricycle, and she loves going for rides. Everything is just brand new to her, watching her figure out grass, sand, and check out the trees and flowers will be amazing. 🙂
Our favorite thing to do is get out for some spring hiking- it’s usually a little wet and sometimes still snow but it’s great to get outside. This year though, we’re busy preparing for our first little one on the way.
We can’t wait to go hiking with kiddo in his backpack to see the spring flowers and green hillsides
So excited to go for walks with my little one and our puppy!
Spring to me always reminds me of new life. I’m expecting my second child at the end of March and I’m so excited to meet this new little joy! I get excited daydreaming about this spring because I get to watch my little boy play in the park while I snuggle with my newborn taking in the good ol’ Vitamin D. The aroma of flowers, fresh cool breeze, and warm sun are just the little things I can’t wait to enjoy. Sharing it with my family is even better. No more hibernation for us!
In the spring, I love to start our garden and work in the yard. After having our daughter last August, our yard was neglected in the fall. I have LOTS to do this spring, if the snow ever goes away 🙂
We just like to get out of the house, I’m really excited about the park this year as my son was just getting the hang of things last fall so it will be exciting to see his progress!
We love going to the park and spending time outside!
I’m most looking forward to going on walks and to parks with my little boy! I think he’s finally at an age where he’ll enjoy being outside 🙂
gabrielandlauren @ gmail.com
My husband and I love to play bocce ball when it starts to get nice outside 🙂 I also really like to purge our apartment of things we don’t need anymore and get organized!
I can’t wait for early evening family walks and Big Salads for dinner!
I love spring when it finally warms up and I can take the kids to the park.
I love planting flowers with the kids, we don’t have much room but we love our flowers all the same.
I’m looking forward to taking my son to play at local parks including a working historical farm. He will love all the baby animals this year.
We love to play in the yard with the sandbox, and we’re looking forward to adding a swingset this spring!! Nothing like the feeling of cool, green grass between your toes on a warm day!
Our favorite springtime activity is planting the garden and getting to peek inside the beehives for the first time after the long winter.
We love spring and all its flowers. Our Favorite thing to do is taking walks in the park.
I am looking forward to lots of walks! I feel like we have been stuck inside for a looong time:)
I can’t wait for outings to the playground and zoo!!
Going for walks, teaching my little guy to ride his bike, playing out on the playground in our backyard, and many trips to the zoo. 🙂
My favorite part of spring is watching the different bulbs start popping up around the yard. The kids and I get very excited wondering just how beautiful of a display God has planned for us each spring.

I can’t wait to picnic with my baby girl,take extra trips to the park, and enjoy longer afternoon walks. I love Spring!
I love Spring! My second favorite season (Summer wins out). Springtime is best for outside play, visits to the park, and planting the gardens.
I can’t wait to be able to go for family walks in the evenings. In the springtime we get to watch the sun set on our walks (but it’s still light enough for us to be comfortable).
jdeemarie @ gmail.com
My favorite Spring activity is to go to the botanic gardens to see all the trees and flowers in bloom. This will be the first spring that my son will be able to share in the tradition with mommy.
I am looking forward to picnics! And maybe my son is old enough for kite flying! His parents can enjoy it anyway!
One of my favorite activities to do in spring is to let me kids paint with water all over the front sidewalk!
We moved over the winter from an apartment to a duplex WITH A YARD!! I am looking forward to being able play outside with my daughter without having to pack up a bunch of stuff, carry everything down a flight of stairs, and walk to a park!
I LOVE springtime! Me and my little boys love to go to the park and walk to trails and go camping. Such a special time to me…I hope I never forget the memories we make in the spring 🙂
I am looking forward to taking walks with my family in the nice weather and showing my son how beautiful spring is.
Southern Illinois has a huge wine trail with local groups performing music outdoors. I am SO looking forward to being outside enjoying the weather with my family. Last year he was too little to be out very much.
It’s hot here in the Spring, so we tried to go swimming a lot! We also try to get in some good hikes and picnics before it’s too hot in the Summer.
our favorite thing to do in spring is play outside – we have 10 acres .. we also have two birthdays in spring and look forward to Easter!

We love taking walks at Maymont Park here in Richmond, VA and ending the walk with a yummy picnic lunch!
Beach days! Florida temps are already in the 80s so perfect for some time by the sea!
I’m looking forward to taking walks around the pond and getting our vegetable garden started.
I’m just looking forward to getting outside, plain and simple! My baby girl was born a preemie last summer, and we didn’t get out too much in the sweltering SC heat. Spring is warm enough but not too humid to spend time in parks and at the beach! I’m so excited to see her explore!
jhthompson2 (at) gmail (dot) com
Our favorite spring time activity is preparing and planting our gardens and then pulling out the bikes for a nice long ride through the woods. 🙂
We like walking to the park (baby girl loves the swing), watching our bulbs bloom, starting seeds for the vegetable garden, going to the zoo and sculpture garden, airing out the house… I’m so eager for spring!
I can’t wait to get out and take walks!! It is a great way for my husband and I to share our days and talk about our plans for the future. This year we will be pushing a stroller as we go!
Our favorite thing to do is get the veggie garden ready. My son likes to play in the dirt (usually a bucket I give him) while I pull dead weeds and stuff. It’s nice to get the sunshine and fresh air! email@example.com
We love spring! I started this morning by hanging a load of wash on the clothes line, even though it’s only 45 degrees. We celebrate the 1st day of spring (March 21) by celebrating my husband’s birthday. He is very adamant about the 1st day of spring being his birthday. Often we go the the local Ritas for free water ice because that is how they celebrate too.
I love a good day in the park! My son is only 7 months old, but I can’t wait to get out and walk through the park and show him all the gorgeous nature around us! We also have a date with the Bronx Zoo on April 6th!! woohoo!
I’m looking forward to being able to take my baby girl out everyday and get some good sunshine! And taking a trip to our weekly local farmers market to get yummy foods to grill!
My favorite springtime activity is just going for a walk or going to the park. I get to relax and play a little and my kids burn some energy.

We love to visit the zoo year round, but Spring is especially fun!
Hiking! We’re so cooped up during the wintertime that we need a good dose of nature in the spring.
I can not wait to play outside with my son! Last year he was still too little to really do anything because he wasn’t even crawling. Now he is running everywhere, so I can’t wait!
Looking forward to walks and planting a garden. I miss fresh veggies!
I cannot wait to play outside in the sandbox and with the swing set!
Walking down to the park, laying out a blanket, and playing in the sunshine.
Spring is that time of year where we can open the windows and listen to the birds sing and enjoy all of it’s wonderful smells. It’s the time where I can take my kids to the park and it’s not too hot and not too cold. It’s the best time of year to just enjoy the outdoors.
Can’t wait to play at the park every day!!
floscarmeli at gmail dot com
I can’t wait to dig in the ground and get out garden planted and my flowers blooming! Right now the ground is still frozen and covered in snow. I guess I still have 2.5 more months before I can plant anything. 🙁
warm weather and maybe a round of golf or two.
vcoday at cox dot net
Our 3rd baby is due in May, so that’s what I’m most looking forward to this spring! Otherwise, we can’t wait to go outside without having to bundle up,take trips to the park and wildlife refuges, and enjoy the sunshine!
My daughter and I love to check out all the trees and flowers budding out so walks and lots of time in the yard is a must!!
Going to the playground with my kiddos 🙂
I can’t wait to be outside more! It’s been so cold and we’ve had so much snow that we’ve had to spend way too much time indoors. Bring on the sun!
Taking walks in the park or our neighborhood, playing in the backyard, and starting our vegetable garden!
I’m sooooo looking forward to spring! I look forward to taking bike rides w/ the kids, the arrival of baby #3 and evening walks around the neighborhood!
I am totally looking forward to playing outside and going for walks! Can’t wait for the snow to be gone and the warm weather to arrive.
Sitting in the back yard admiring the lilac bushes and watching my dogs romp and enjoy the warmth and plethora of scents.
This spring, my husband and I will both be finishing up our degrees! I am so excited to have more time for both of us to spend together and with out little one, she is getting to an age where she is ready to get out and explore.
Going for walks.
Great giveaway! We’ve been using cloth for our son for the past two years, and look forward to doing the same for our next little boy, born in May.
I am looking forward to getting my hands in the dirt, planting all kinds of tasty and beautiful things and taking a walk through my garden each morning to see the progress.
I like taking my little one for jogs and planning the garden. 🙂
walking on the beach with the sun at my back…ahhh, heaven!
Outdoor walks and vegetable gardening. My baby will be eating solids this summer, so I am especially looking forward to gardening and making baby food for him!
I’m so excited for Spring to get here so we can just get some fresh air! I’m looking forward to spending afternoons and the zoo and the park. I hope to teach my 5 year old daughter to ride her bike and let my 9 month old just explore!
I’m giving birth to my first little one this spring (EDD is April 24th), so I’m looking forward to that! 🙂
This Spring, I’m looking forward to meeting our little bundle of joy sometime around May 1st! Otherwise, I love having the windows open letting fresh air in, taking my daughter out to play, and for walks.

Camping and going to the park!
My (first) baby was born on December 30, 2010, so we’ve been mostly inside. I can’t even explain how much I’m looking forward to going for walks in the neighborhood and the park!
We are looking forward to the spring weather too, still a couple of months away here. Cannot wait to capture those cute baby toes in the grass for the first time!
We love anything outdoors. It’s not too hot or cold, and outdoor activities are generally free! Lately we’ve been walking to the neighborhood park so we don’t even have to get into the truck.
I can’t wait to take my son on walks in the park – without snow!!!! That was our normal Saturday morning without daddy. He needs to get out of the house!

Without a doubt… playing in the rain! There is nothing more amazing than the smell of rain before it falls, running around being one of the kids, and snuggling when you dry off! (and hanging out together watching a storm roll in!!!) Oh I love spring!
So excited to spend more time at the park…especially now that my 13 month old is wanting to explore more than just the baby swing!
I feel as though we’ve been buried in snow and cold for a while, and I cannot WAIT to get out! My favorite outdoor activity is definitely hiking in backwoods areas here in Nebraska. I’m originally from Colorado, though, and nothing beats those mountain hikes! That’s my favorite for sure!
Showlove40 at hotmail dot com
I can’t wait to get out and walk/jog. We are looking into jogging strollers that convert to be able to pull behind the bike because we love to ride bikes too! Can’t wait for the warm weather way up here in Buffalo, NY 🙂
Our favorite thing to do in spring is to just get outside! We can’t wait to be able to go to the park or to just take a walk around the block!
…but what I’m most looking forward to is our WEDDING in April! We were married in a private ceremony a few years ago, but after buying a house and having our child, we’re finally having our wedding and reception that we have always wanted! So exciting! I can’t wait to see our beautiful daughter walk down the aisle as our flower girl (with a white BG under her dress, of course)!
I am looking forward to going to the Arboretum with my little ones and spending Easter with the whole family! So fun!
Can’t wait to take our little one
out for walks and go Geocashing. Everything will be her first so excited
for it all!
GARDENING! I love to plant vegetables and flowers. I’m so excited that DD is finally old enough to “help.” The last 2 out of 3 springs/summers were spent either being on bedrest with DD, or having DS, so I’m itching to get back out into the yard.
Can’t wait to get out there and ride my bike with my little guy!
Longer days and walks in the park.
Our favorite spring activity is going on family walks. We love taking walks downtown and we are always looking for new trails to walk on. It’s a wonderful way to spend family time together, get some exercise and it’s a great way to teach our kids about everything from the history of downtown to how plants and flowers grow.
Our favorite springtime activity is playing in the rain (in clothdiapers and raincoats of course- if it’s warm enough). Besides that, we enjoy taking walks to the park and investigating our friendly neighborhood squirrels 🙂
I think this year I am looking forward to daily trips to the park. Soggy OR weather makes it difficult for several months a year to get out every day 🙂
Our favourite spring activities are breaking out the sidewalk chalk and covering the cement patio and drive with colourful rainbows and flower drawings!!
We also resume our daily walks to the library and post office.
We plan out our garden and start looking at seeds in the stores.
We love spring! Can’t wait.
I can’t wait to start a garden with my daughter. She’s going to be 13 this year and is so busy with school and activities. I hope gardening and creating recipes with what we grow will give us some precious moments together.
We live in SC so Spring usually starts early for us. We actually had 85 degree weather this past weekend!:) I love it when we can get out with our dog and take him for long walks before it gets humid and uncomfortable here…can’t wait to be bringing our baby along in just a few short months!
Taking walks! Ready for the snow to be gone for good.

WARM WEATHER! and my baby is due soon!
I a looking forward to blowing bubbles and picking dandelions with my girls 🙂
I am looking forward to planting & gardening with my 3 y.o. son.
My favorite springtime activities are beach trips! Relaxing all day in the sun, cooling off in the water and hitting up our favorite taco stand on the way home. I’m really looking forward to having our daughter enjoy the beach and water now that she is old enough to walk and run around.
I;m very excited for this coming season!
I love the spring and it FINALLY not being winter! Boots change to flip flops and jackets change to sundresses! I am looking forward to just being able to enjoy the outdoors again!
I can’t wait for baseball games! And my two yea old daughter is very excited this year too
Mud pies, baby chicks, feeding the ducks, nature walks, outdoor concerts, enjoying the sunshine!
I am looking forward to playing outside with the kids!
We are looking forward to sunshine and teaching our baby how to swim!
Can’t wait to get out the playground with my 2-year-old and 10-month-old. The younger one loves watching big brother play on the equipment!
I’m looking forward to exploring the forest with my kiddo!
I love to spend an entire day outdoors. Go to the park, have a picnic, and enjoy the sunshine.
I’m most looking forward to going on long walks and hiking in the beautiful weather with my baby and husband! 🙂
There are so many wonderful things to do in spring where we live but our favorite is going downtown to big spring park to feed the fish and tje ducks and geese who are all back! Especially when all the dogwood trees bloom in the park even better when there is a group of musicians playing outside and people dancing! Our family loves those things!
I’m looking forward to gardening!!

Our favorite spring time activity is going to the zoo! My kids are already asking when the snow melts can we go! We have a pass and take full advantage in the spring. A perfect way to get outside and enjoy nature!
Nature walks! And opening all the windows in the house to air out the old stale winter air.
Our favorite spring time activity is exploring in the park. We make a day out of it and really try to observe everything. It’s a fun filled day of science!
I love walking around the yard and seeing all of the bulbs planted last year bring forth their beauty in bloom! Snowski824@aol.com
I am most looking forward to going on walks with my new little one and showing him all of the wonderful new life that comes with spring. I think we are both tired of enjoying the world through the living room window!
Going to the park and getting ice cream afterward!
Favorite spring activity is camping with the family!
Working in the garden
I can’t wait to go on regular walks and hikes AND we joined a CSA that welcomes members to hang out at the farm so we’ll be taking strolls through their garden and visiting their pigs and chickens. Can’t wait!
I love being able to go for walks & hikes, as well as planting our garden.:)
I am looking forward to taking walks outside and rolling the windows down in the car!
Going to the park! So fun for my son and fun for me to get out!
even though we’re in hawaii and spring technically doesn’t apply, I can’t wait for the ocean to get a little warmer so I can put my son on a surfboard for the 1st time!

We love to take family bike rides, with the smallest in tow in a bike trailer. We have so much fun.
This spring, I am most looking forward to having a new baby and breaking out the cloth diapers that have been waiting since my son grew out of them!
I look forward to taking walks, enjoying the smells of the new flowers, and the smells of the first lawn mowing (not that I will be doing it, but that always tells me that it is spring when I smell freshly chopped grass).
I love taking my son to the park! He loves to run around 🙂
I have won recently so I would like to voluntarily withdraw from the contest part 🙂 My favorite spring activity is cleaning up the yard. It is so enormously rewarding to spend a little time after winter cleaning up any leftover leaves and twigs, trimming up bushes, cleaning out garden boxes preparing them for planting, sweeping the deck and setting out patio/garden decor.
Our favorite spring time activity is just hanging out in the yard! Winter is so long here we all just bask in the sun and appreciate the lack of snow!
Going outside, more daylight, gardening, and line drying diapers in the sunshine!
bike rides, walks to the park, fishing at the pond, pretty much anything outside is great. our first vacation as a family of 4 is this spring i cant wait — sea world and the zoo here we come !!
We are definitely looking forward to spring, it was great waking up to the sunshine and birds chirping off in the distance. Our favorite spring time activity is to visit one of our local metro parks here in Dayton, they have so many, and offer plenty of trails. Definitely looking forward to our first nature spring walk of the year.
I can’t wait to try to walk my dog and my baby through the park!
I’m most looking forward to going wandering around our old town with my little one! He’ll be old enough to do some walking on his own this year!!
Siting on the front porch coloring with my 5 year old or blowing bubbles.
I love to see the trees budding and the flowers blooming as it gets warm enough to take walks.
My favorite is picking out flowers with my husband and children to plant in the front yard. I’m also love all the Easter activities I love dressing everyone up.
My daughter is 5 weeks old today! We live in Maine and it is super cold and snowy here. We are so looking forward to Spring so that we can go wrap-walking. We live in a super cute neighborhood and it’s beautiful when it isn’t freezing 🙂

We can’t wait to go bike riding as a family. This is our first spring that our son is old enough and we have many plans to enjoy the beautiful weather.
I can’t wait to take my little guy outside so we can take out the jogging stroller and play in his baby swing!
I can’t wait for the snow to melt and to get outside with my little daughter. She’s almost 5 months and we’re sick of being cooped up inside!
I can’t wait to take our kids to the park and play outside all day, everyday again! Spring weather is the best, warm sun and crisp air!
SO excited to start the garden! And to teach my little one about planting yummy veggies!
My favorite springtime activity is just getting out for lots of walks in the damp springtime air! After staying inside all winter it is just what the doctor ordered. I can’t wait to open the windows and get fresh air in the house too. I’m newly pregnant and everything smells gross to me, LOL!
I just love being outside after a cold winter. We get tired of being cooped up!
I’m just looking forward to getting outside with the kids, period! But we are planning to start doing some family bike rides, as soon as it gets nice enough.
flip flops and tank tops!
I cannot wait to take my daughter outside and let her run around in the grass, and play on the swings… I just love watching her run around at the park. I’ve missed that while it’s been too cold and snowy to do it.
we LOVE stroller rides… walking all over… especially to the park! I can’t wait till it warms up to go. With a newborn and a toddler in the house we need to get out!
My favorite springtime activity is putting the baby in her backpack and taking a hike in the woods, its nice to get out in the fresh air!
I’m excited to add some color to our yard by planting flowers! And I love being able to cook on the grill!
I love spring! My youngest was born last April so we will be celebrating his first birthday!!! I also can’t wait for trips to the zoo, long bike rides and trips to the park.
Not that we have much of a Spring here in San Antonio, but I am looking forward to be able to spend more time outside at the parks with the kiddos and our NEW DOG!! Explore the city, swim, and just have fun together as a family!!!!!
Picnics in the park, taking walks and letting my little girl explore the outdoors as a walker for the first time!

I’m super excited for Spring. My DS and I love to take walks in the cool weather. We are also expecting a DD in May so that’s REALLY exciting and we can’t wait for the new addition.
My husband and I absolutely love going on picnics and taking our dogs on long walks during the spring.We like to take advantage of this spring weather because our summer weather is quite miserable. We will be welcoming our first baby girl in May and cannot wait for her to enjoy our spring adventures as well.
I am looking forward to walks in the park and feeding the ducks at the city park. First Spring for my baby girl, I can’t wait!
I love taking loooong walks with the little one.

I can’t wait to get off the treadmill and start running outside regularly and take the kids with me!
Also, I have a speaking gig in St Louis and I get to visit the Cotton Babies store while I’m there!
Our favorite springtime activity is getting outdoors! I can’t wait until it’s warm enough for me and bubba to get back to our daily walks!
I’m ready to go to the park. My almost 2-year old loves being outside, so it’s going to be a great spring. 🙂
I am excited to go hiking. There are some beautiful trails and caves at Hocking Hills, which is not to far from here and we all just love it 🙂
babywearing and walks in the park, picnics, barbecues..gods, what’s -not- to love about warmer weather? ^_^
riding bikes and walks around the block 🙂

We love going to college baseball games.
In addition to be able to get outside more, I’m looking most forward to not having to wrestle my resistant toddler into 18 layers of clothing.
I can’t wait to go on walks, play outside on our swing set, and GRILL yummy food!
well for spring we love to go to a beach or a water park, keep in mind we are in florida so people are already at the beach now
we love to get out and enjoy the weather by going to the zoo, the nature center for a hike or just a walk around the block. After being cooped up all winter it is great to get out and enjoy nature.
In the spring we love to go on long walks exploring our neighborhood or taking adventures to the nearby state park.
Going for walks around the neighborhood!

Going for walks and just being able to go outside without windter coats.
we love playing outside!
I do “spring training” with my dog every year to work on new skills and regain any he lost over the long winter. Last year, our training was focused on getting ready for baby, and this year the baby will join us on our long walks and sessions!

My daughter just turned 2, and is now aware of the world around her.

I can’t wait to have my little guy playing in the back yard in his cute fluffy bum!

I looking forward to it staying light out later yay! No more darkness at dinner time 🙂
I can’t wait to be able to go for walks again without bundling up!
My favorite spring time activity is planting all my beautiful flowers! I look forward to be able to spend more time outside in the warm weather and going swimming with my 23 month old!
Playing outside! It is my 4 year olds favorite thing to do and it lifts my spirits too, making me a better mama. But, the thing I am looking forward to the most is the birth of our second son due in April!!
I am looking forward to getting out of the house with my baby WITHOUT bundling up first, lots more sunshine, the end of the school year (and thus a summer off for my wife and me), trying for baby number two, and some fun trips.
I am looking forward to spending more time outside in the warm weather. Planting in the yard and picnics.
hismrs2010 at aol dot com
Walks outside. I’m tired of the treadmill. It’s always nice to see the spring flowers and green grass too.
I love planting flowers and our garden. And I am also looking forward to plenty of time at the park with my little boy.
etwilkins at gmail dot com
We love to be outside, at the park or in the yard, blowing bubbles, coloring with chalk, and playing with the dogs.
trob4 at hotmail dot com
Going for walks! Stopping at the park and library on the way. My girls have been sick all winter so I’m ready for some sun!
We can’t wait to get the rain boots and play clothes on, and go jump in puddles and run around and get messy!!
Spring is for planning the garden!
Most springs we are just ready to get out of the house and play and take walks. This spring we are ready for our baby boy to get here big sister can’t wait.
walking, going to the park, wagon rides..love love love!
I just can’t wait to go outside and PLAY! My 2 year old hates playing out in the cold…and his little brother doesn’t really like it either. I’m definitely getting antsy in the house 🙁
Going on walks with my family, baseball games, and just going outside in general!!! 🙂
I love getting out the stroller and walking with my toddler!
WE love to fly kites!
Favorite spring activity? RUGBY!!!!!!!! 😛
Taking long walks as a family and showing our son how beautiful it is outside.
While I probably should say: Welcoming a new baby in May, instead I’ll say warmer weather. This winter had been brutal!
working in the yard and being able to walk to the park without bundling up or sweating!
Trips to the park with friends!!!!
Spring means that things warm up from 20-30 degrees to 50-65 degrees here, so we can actually go outside for walks and play in the neighborhood playground! With a toddler turning 2 this month, this has us SO excited!
I’m just looking forward to being outside! I was pregnant last spring and I was too hot to be outside at all 🙁
I am most looking forward to the sun, and the mud drying up!
We don’t really have spring here in Florida so with our warmer temps lately we’ve been enjoying time at the park, wagon rides around the neighborhood and trips to the zoo. My daughter loves being outside!
This spring, I’m looking forward to planting our garden!
I love spring. The warm weather and new blooms. I am most excited to go on walks with my new baby boy and enjoy the zoo and parks with our new family.
Spring is probably our favorite season. It’s been a grumpy winter, and we’re ready to have a full spring in our new house. We love to take walks and check out wildflowers, pick up sticks, check out the newly budding trees, walk along the creek and see if we can spot fish or frogs, jump in mud puddles, get some yard and garage work done, and just in general have fun outside. (As an aside, my daughter wore her cloth diapers outside all summer last year. She rarely wore pants–it IS possible to get blue latex based house paint AND transmission fluid/assorted engine grease out of cloth diapers)…
I live in an area with lots of snow (Michigan), and can’t wait to get out and go for walks with my little one! Seeing all the snow melt, and smelling the fresh dirt, and watching the flowers come up… ohh I’m so anxious for spring!
Taking walks to the park and the library! Or generally being outside and getting some sunshine!
