Spring is a famous time for cleaning, but it’s also a great time to freshen up the inside of your house. You may not have the time or budget for wholesale interior remodeling, but there’s a lot you can do by livening up your interior decorating. After a cold and gray winter, spring is a time for renewal and growth, so it’s great if your decorating suggests these themes. The bedroom is a particularly good place for making your décor more spring-y. It’s easy to change many elements of the décor in your bedroom and it will brighten your mood every day.
Beds: The bed is usually the focal point of any room, so your spring makeover should start here. First, you should replace heavy winter bedding with lighter bedding for a warmer season. Replace the comforter with a quilt or light bedspread and take out those flannel sheets in favor of light cotton sheets. Next, you can choose bedding whose colors and patterns evoke spring.
New Colors and Patterns: Floral or botanical patterns for the sheets suggest a season of new growth and renewal. If you aren’t crazy about these types of patterns, think about focusing on spring-y colors that suggest freshness and the outdoors – sky blue, bright yellow, yellow-green, and even pink. Don’t be afraid of bright colors; this is the season for it! Or, you can pick more muted pastel shades of your favorite colors. If you’re decorating a child’s or baby’s bedroom, pastel colors will fit right in. Geometric patterns are very fashionable right now, so if you like the geometric look, you can select bedding with spring-like colors to help give the flavor of the season.

It had been about 30 years since I had been to the Magic Kingdom, when the time had come to return with my own children. I imagine there have been some changes over the years; but all of my "favorite" rides were still there: the Matterhorn, Thunder Mountain Railroad, Space Mountain, and last but not least, the Pirates of the Caribbean.
The Thunder Mountain Railroad happened to be closed on this particular day; but the others were up and running. Therefore, I was able to introduce my oldest, at 8, to the roller coasters. She loved it and didn’t even flinch.
We spent about 8 hours at the park, and the staff was helpful and friendly as usual. I was also impressed by the use of CNG fuel in the trams, as this is one of the cleanest combustion fuels.
