I've been thinking (A LOT) about sunshine and spring...I'm so sick of the cold weather!
My daughter will be 1 this summer and able to go outside; last year we pretty much kept her in since she was so small. My son is an outdoor kid so I imagine we'll be spening the majority of our days in the backyard.
This got me thinking about bugbites, sunscreen and cute little hats (which could probably be a post all its own!). So I wanted to pass along some resources for information (especially for those of you with babies).
