With kids out of school on summer vacation and weather seemingly getting nicer and nicer, the urge to spend time outside gets stronger everyday. Whether it's spending some time swimming or maybe making a quick escape outside of town, the outside provides a great temptation for many people sitting at work.
The weather outside has still been a little chilly in Laramie over the last few weeks, but it is indeed getting warmer and warmer as Summer approaches. As kids are getting out of school, chances are that they are itching to hit the community pools around Laramie; fortunately they are opening soon according to Laramie's Parks & Recreation department.
Chalk up another holiday to the category of "bizarre." International Migratory Bird Day, observed in the United States on the second Saturday of May, will be in Laramie this Saturday (the second Saturday of the month).
