Weekend Planner

Welcome to our weekly post that highlights things to do on the weekends as a family, with friends, or date night ideas. We'll share what we'll be doing each weekend, things to do at home or outdoors with the kids, and things to do in and around Des Moines, Iowa (where we live). A little bit of everything rolled into one post for everyone to draw ideas from!

What We're Doing:
  • Downtown Farmer's Market
  • Birthday party
  • ??? We actually have a semi-open day. We haven't decided how to spend it yet.
Ideas For Your Weekend:
  • Brunch on a patio. We love brunches, especially in the spring time when we can eat outside as it's warm but not too warm.
  • Visit a rose garden or other type of garden in your area.
  • Take in a baseball/softball/ or soccer game. High school, minor league, or pro, these games are great for kids to see. Plus, a visit to the concession stand always cause for excitement (no matter what your age).
  • Make homemade play dough, break out cookie cutters or other washable toys, and let the kids play. It may be the perfect thing to keep your kids occupied while you get some things done around the house or take a much needed break. 
Other Happenings Around Des Moines, IA:
  • Cirque Italia
  • Wizard World Comic Con
  • Soybean planting at Living History Farms
  • Vintage and Made Fair (Jordan Camp Park)
