Weekend Planner

What We're Doing:
  • ROAD TRIP!!! It's finally vacation time! All of those months of planning and talking are happening! Be sure to follow along on Instagram, Twitter, and/or Facebook. I'm not sure how often the blog will be updated while we're gone, but I'll be sure to share our experiences and my thoughts on social media.
Other Things To Do:
  • 4th of July weekend! Have a cook out with friends, go to a beach, watch fireworks, play with sparklers. Kids of all ages love this weekend
  • Go camping over the long weekend
  • Have a water balloon fight
  • See National Parks Adventure. We absolutely loved this documentary (the kids included). Check to see if it's playing near you.
  • Create a scavenger hunt for the kids. Make it outdoorsy or easy objects found in the city or simple things the kids can find in your backyard. Any way you do it, kids have a blast with this.
Happenings Around Central Iowa:
  • Ashworth/Greenwood Park spray pad. We tried it out last weekend and the kids gave it two thumbs up. Here's a video the middle mini took of him playing in the water
  • Family Summer Camp at Bass Pro Shop (Altoona, Iowa)
  • Fireworks at the Fairgrounds (Saturday)
  • Urbandale 4th of July carnival
  • All Iowa Bash (Valley Junction, Sunday July 3)
  • Live At The Creek concert series (Jordan Creek Amphitheater, Sunday July 3)
  • Music Under the Stars (West Capitol Grounds)
