3. Eat a grilled cheese

Grilled Cheese Sandwich Day is April 12. We can make them at home of course, but my kids LOVE the ooey-gooey goodness of grilled cheese sandwiches at Dino's Grill in Newark. I think this might be a good excuse to take them out to dinner! If you'd rather, grill up these delicious twists on the classic grilled cheese sandwich at home.

Did you know April is one of the best months of the year to look up to the skies and watch meteor showers? Watch the Lyrid meteor showers late evening until moonrise April 15-29.
