Egg Hunts, Easter Bunny and Special Services

This week we recommend taking the escape with the entire family.

Your teens are holding a car wash at the high school Saturday. The grandparents volunteered to take the younger children to a movie Sunday afternoon. Your tweens take tap on Wednesday evening. It’s your time. Take it.

Each week, we’ll tell you about one great idea to give you a much deserved break, and make your life a little easier, maybe a whole lot easier.

But this weekend, we'd like to recommend a little family time—with an Easter twist.
