Three things you should do in honor of Pi Day

Looked at a calender today?

It’s March 14, or 3.14, aka Pi Day (π), a celebration of the most awesome-est number (it’s true).

Here are some ways to celebrate the big day:

  1. Grab a slice of a different kind of pie at the Homemade Ice Cream and Pie KitchenI’m a fan of the Double Crust Apple Pie. YUM.
  2. Try and recite as many digits of pi as you can. There’s A LOT more after the 3.14.
  3. Wish my dad a happy birthday. What’s not to love about this guy?
Happy birthday, Daddy!
