Mama Didn’t Raise An April Fool

Mama Didn’t Raise An April Fool

Beware! April Fool’s Day approaches and sneaky pranksters are afoot! Watch out for Vaseline-covered doorknobs, switched-out shoelaces, loosely-screwed-in salt shaker caps, cranked-up volume dials on your laptop, and questionable word-replacement on your cell phone texts.

And parents, know that the suddenly-appearing tattoo on your toddler is a temporary one.

What you don’t have to watch out for is your friends at BackCountry. We would never pull one over on you! We’re just here to suggest fun events during April. Hope to see you around the Sundial House on those warm weather days!
