Weekend Planner

Last year's creation for birthday bash. The desserts will not be as time consuming this year: chocolate cupcakes for all!

What We're Doing:
  • The 4th Annual Birthday Bash! This year we're doing it at a local aquatic center and we're super excited about it!
  • Seeing the newest Ninja Turtle movie in the theater with the boys (and their friends)
Other Things To Do:

  • Go to a water park. Our kids love water parks, especially on hot weekends in the summer!
  • Slip n Slide. Kids have a blast on these! Even better if you have a hill that they can slide down on. Add some Dawn dish soap so they can go even faster!
  • If you want something fun and free to do, try out a Tour of Wading Pools. We did one where we live in Des Moines and had a blast! It's very simple: make a list of wading pools in your area or near you and visit them
  • Head to a local farmer's market for fresh produce, meats, and baked goods

Things To Do In Des Moines:
  • Single Dad's Day at Iowa Cubs Stadium (Sunday)
  • Valley Community Center Celebration (Sunday)
  • Music Under The Stars (West Capitol Grounds; Sunday evenings)
  • Pridefest 2016 (parade, 1:00 p.m. on Sunday)
  • Ashworth swimming pool. This is our favorite pool in Des Moines!
