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:
  • Max's school Family Fun Night
  • Harrison's school Spring Fling
  • Early Mother's Day celebrations
  • the Blank Park Zoo
Other Happenings Around The Metro:
  • The first downtown farmer's market of the season! I can't believe we're skipping opening weekend, but we'll for sure be going soon.
  • YESS Duck Derby at Jordan Creek Town Center
  • The Avengers: Age of Ultron opens. I have two boys and a husband. This is a BIG deal.
  • Beaverdale Superhero 5K, Saturday May 2nd. Registration closes at 4 p.m. today (May 1st) so act quickly!
  • Ledges State Park. It would be a gorgeous weekend to pack a picnic and get some hiking in. This is our favorite place to hike and it's crushing me that we haven't been able to make it there yet this year.
