Out & About with the kids this week in Charlotte: February 23-March 2

Queen City Buzz

The snow/ice/sludge has melted (finally), but sadly the temperatures this week are still going to feel like winter. We flip the calendar to March on Sunday which surely means warmer temperatures are on the way (PLEASE). The Southern Spring Home & Garden Show is in town for one more weekend to get you inspired, and Spring & Summer Consignment Sales abound to get you and your family outfitted. Spring better be on its way...I am DONE with Winter!!!

Blessings,

The Buzz
