Weekend Fun: Flowers, Kites, and Grilled Cheese; May 18-19

It really must be spring with all of the flower and kite (or kite and bike)-themed festivals this weekend. Not so into flowers? How about grilled cheese? In the spirit of outdoor living, families can also design their own treehouse and have an (indoor) garden party. This quintessential Boston spring event lets Bostonians get out on the water of the Charles, followed by a BBQ by the river. Our spring fun guide and May GoList serve up even more ideas for enjoying the nicer weather, so be sure to check those out when mapping out the weekend. 

Also on Mommy Poppins this week:
