Arbor Annie’s Weekday Roundup – August 1-5

This week I am breathing a huge sigh of relaxation. After a summer full of my daughter’s swim team and softball, she finished both last week. Now we can truly begin to enjoy our summer. Hopefully that means we’ll be able to attend more fun events. 

Arbor Annie's Weekday Picks - August 1-5For many kid’s the highlight this week is the Ann Arbor District Library’s LEGO Contest on Thursday. It’s one of my daughter’s favorite events of the year. She was thrilled to take home a medal last year. Even if your child isn’t submitting an entry, it is fun to see everyone’s creation during the open viewing.

Also this week, the Quality 16 Dollar Movie is Diary of a Wimpy Kid. My daughter loves those books, so I’m sure she would love to see the movie this week.

This continues to be a very warm summer. This week is no exception with highs in the upper 80s to 90. With the continued hot temperatures, be sure to check out both our 10 Places to Get Wet and our 5 Free Air conditioned activities to Beat the Heat.
