Weekend Planner

This weekend three years ago

What We're Doing:

  • Indie Author Book Expo
  • The Boxcar Children Sneak Preview at Franklin Avenue Library
  • Blank Park Zoo to see the baby rhino! The minis are ecstatic! 
  • A hike, a movie, ??? We've got Sunday open with a few things we'd like to do. We'll see what wins out

Things To Do:

  • Make thank you trees or leaves
  • Trolls movie comes out this weekend. Make it a family movie afternoon
  • Family movie night. We've had a few of these lately and the minis look forward to them (and often request them!). We do something special for dinner (ordering pizza or chinese food, making our own pizzas, a dinner of our fave appetizers, etc.) and eat while we watch the movie. Now that it's getting darker earlier, we can start a movie earlier and finish up just around bedtime
  • Make Christmas lists. Our families start Christmas shopping early so we have to have our lists ready. It also makes shopping a bit easier on us if the kid's lists are already done. You can make it interesting and have kids make Christmas Tree Christmas Lists

Happenings Around Central Iowa:

  • Children and Families of Iowa's Princess Party at Jordan Creek Town Center
  • The Boxcar Children at Des Moi nes Community Playhouse
  • Iowa Wild game at Wells Fargo Arena
  • Grab a bagel Saturday morning at 5 Borough Bagels in Clive, Ia. My favorite bagels around the metro
  • Check out the Science Center's new Music exhibit
