Oh pizza, how we love you. Let us count the ways: Cheese, pepperoni, anchovy, pineapple... we could go on, but you get the idea. Celebrate with Breakfast Pizza, Pizza Casserole, or even Grilled Pizza!

5. Count those birds!

We're looking forward to adding the feathered friends who visit our bird feeders to the Great Backyard Bird Count! The goal of the annual Great Backyard Bird Count, a citizen science project, is to count as many birds as participants can find, and report those findings.

Want to participate? It's easy! Here's how: Decide where you will watch birds. Watch birds for 15 minutes or more. Count them! You can report back using the Merlin Bird ID app. 

We love that you can do this at home with kids, but you can also take your bird counting on the road in Palm Beach County! Visit a local nature center or beach and see what you can find.
