Weekend Planner

Welcome to our weekly Thursday morning post about what's going on in the Des Moines, Iowa area. We'll share what we'll be doing, great finds, restaurants to eat at, shops to drop some cash at, and just all the great things Des Moines has to offer families.
What we're doing:
  • Not a lot. Our oldest is still recovering from a tonsillectomy so we'll be keeping things calm and relaxing for Easter weekend. No egg hunts (other than the eggs the E.B. leaves around the living room) and a relaxing weekend at home is just what the doctor ordered.
  • Game Night. Friends and family are in town for Easter weekend, which means we'll be gathering all of the people we love into Sheaffer-land once the minis are in bed and playing our fave game: Cards Against Humanity
What Else is Going On:
  • Easter egg hunts. Two of our faves (that we'll be missing) happen this weekend: Gateway Church's Egg Hunt in Western Gateway Park and Blank Park Zoo's Eggstravaganza.
  • Easter brunches. Don't have any plans? Hit up one of the numerous metro area restaurants running Easter brunch specials.
